Fall sports teams honored at banquet

November is always an exciting month at Lehigh Valley Christian High School. Not only are the seasons shifting from fall to winter, but the sports seasons are changing as well.

Fall sports are coming to an end and winter sports are beginning to pick up.

To close off the fall sports season, we celebrated with a sports banquet Nov. 15. Family and friends gathered to support the teams' accomplishments of the 2012 season.

Teachers attend conference

Lehigh Valley Christian High School survived Hurricane Sandy relatively unscathed. Our building, on Howertown Road in Catasauqua, never lost electricity, heat or Internet service, nor was there any flooding. Some of the aluminum facing on the front top of the building got ripped off or bent back, but that is the only damage we could find. We are very grateful.

As a result of Sandy, we had to make some calendar changes. The fall athletic awards night has been rescheduled for tonight, Thursday, Nov. 15.
