In My Own Words
In this instal

In My Own Words In this installment of In My Own Words, Lauren Powell talks about twirling fire on her competitive twirling team. We have four weeks until our first baton competition of the season. The other girls and I who are on the competitive and Disney teams have been working hard since this the end of July to premier our new routines for the season. I have been twirling with Melanie's Miracles since I was in first grade. Two years ago we took three routines to Twirl Mania in Disney World and last year we stared a Competition Team that competes in more competitions than regular class routines do. I asked some of the elite twirlers what they were excited for this season. Two said that they were most excited to go to Disney and compete at Twirl Mania. I also interviewed a former twirler, Jasmine Thompson, about what she missed the most. She said," FFIIIIIIIRRRRRRREEEEE! Oh and Disney. Duh. What else? plus friends. But I see most of them a school anyway. So no harm done." In the video above, Freshmen Kamie Dombrowski is also on the team. Here's a video of her twirling fire. #LSNews #LSPioneers #Twirling #TwirlMania #DisneyWorld #Fire #FireBaton

Last weekend the Lampeter-Stra

Last weekend the Lampeter-Strasburg Asian Culture club and Mr. Brian Fisher’s Mandarin Chinese classes were invited on a trip to the Franklin Institute to see the Terracotta Warriors. Out of the estimated 8,000 Terracotta Warriors, ten were on display at the museum. The Trip The day started off by arriving at the Lampeter-Strasburg High School at 7:15 in the morning. When my mom and I arrived, a lot of people were already there on the bus. Promptly at 7:30, we were off on our way! Mr. Fisher (who is in charge of the Asian Culture club and Mandarin Chinese teacher) handed out the tickets, stickers, and a list of restaurants to go to. We arrived in Philadelphia at the Franklin Institute at 9 am; It was going to be another 30 minutes before we were let in to see the exhibit. I couldn’t wait; I was restless. My mom and I looked through the cool gift shop the museum had. Finally, the Terracotta Warriors exhibit was open. I handed the worker my ticket and I went upstairs to sit down and watch the short informational movie. At the end of the movie, the doors suddenly slid open to reveal one out of the ten Terracotta Warriors. Everyone gasped. We pour into the exhibit, phones out and ready to take pictures. “I am amazed by the craftsmanship of the warriors! It’s astonishing that the details have lasted all that time” said Melissa Evans.

Graduate Spotlight 
Everyone s

Graduate Spotlight Everyone says they are going to be "Home for the Holidays." 2013 Lampeter-Strasburg graduate Madison Buck does it twice a day six days a week in American Music Theater's Christmas Show: Home for the Holidays. Madison Paige Buck always expressed her passion and love for the arts! Her love of theater and singing was developed at school through her participation in chorus, middle school and high school Madrigals, fall play, spring musicals, Thespian Society, and Tri-M Music Honor Society, for which she served as President her senior year of high school. Additionally, she took private voice lessons under the direction of Katie Wieand from 2006-2013. In addition to her extra-curricular activities, she took every music class offered at the high school. Upon graduating L-S, she went on to major in Vocal Performance with a concentration in Opera at Temple University. After two years of studying classically, she switched her major to Musical Theater, where her true passion always laid (which really came as no surprise to anyone!) She is a recent, 2017 graduate of Temple University with a Bachelor's in Musical Theater.

Neither cold nor Northern Leba

Neither cold nor Northern Lebanon can stop Pioneer football team. Last night neither Old Man Winter or the Northern Lebanon could stop the Lampeter-Strasburg football team from winning the District 3 Class AAAA quarterfinal match of playoffs. The Vikings had the Pioneers on the ropes for much of the game. At the half, Northern Lebanon was leading 13-7. The Viking maintained that lead, 19-14, going into the fourth quarter. But the Pioneers started to heat up despite the dropping temperate as L-S completed shut out the Viking in the fourth quarter while putting up another 20 points. When the final buzzer sounded the Pioneers were victorious, 34-19. Click the link in the bio for more images.

This is a picture of my varsit

This is a picture of my varsity club officers with some of our shoe drive collection. This week the Lampeter-Strasburg Varsity Club held its third annual sneaker drive. The drive was a huge success collecting 300 pairs in total. Hans Herr contributed the lion’s share with over 250 pair. and tons of sneakers (which is what we really need) were in the collection. Several high school students were excited to see some popular Nike shoes commenting that younger kids would be really excited to get a shoe that was that popular. The sneakers are Philadelphia bound for poverty stricken youth. Without sneakers, these Philadelphia students are unable to participate in gym class. #LSNews #LSPioneers #VarsityClub #SneakerDrive

In My Own Words: Twirlers in t

In My Own Words: Twirlers in the Marching Band. This year when I became a freshman at Lampeter-Strasburg High School, and I decided to join the marching band. At the end of my 8th grade year the middle and high school band director, Mr. Larry Royer, asked all of the 8th graders in concert band about joining high school marching band. I always knew that I wanted to join marching band, but I had to choose between color guard and my clarinet. At my meeting with Mr. Royer, he mentioned a few of my teammates and I twirling during one of the songs. I have been twirling baton since I was in first grade, although I had never really thought of twirling in the marching band.

Earlier today, the LS News web

Earlier today, the LS News website broke half a million page views since going live on May 11, 2015 less than 30 months ago. Those 500,000 views come from 942 published articles with contributions coming from 187 different student writers and photographers. It should come as no surprise that a majority of LS News' web traffic comes via social media. Millennials might argue it as passé, but Facebook is the king of social media for LS News at least. Facebook alone is responsible for almost half the site's web traffic with approximately 215,000 page views. Every day, our Facebook page reaches between 2,000 and 3,000 people. Interestingly despite having over 1,000 followers and generating nearly 20,000 weekly impressions on Instagram, the popular photo sharing network has only contributed about 2,600 page views to the actual LS News web site. Every month our Twitter account makes about 30,000 impressions and overall has added 7,000 page views. Here's a look back at our ten most popular LS News articles.

November 7: Joy
On November 7,

November 7: Joy On November 7, the Lampeter-Strasburg High School Girls Soccer Team takes on state playoffs for the first time in the school’s history. After entering districts for the first time in seven years, the girls blew the minds of everyone in the Lancaster-Lebanon League. They may not be the biggest school out there, but the talent is most definitely present. The four seniors, Kendal Ream, Morgan Wilson, Hannah Adams, and Maddy Stabinger, finish off their high school career with a bang. Since this team was never a contender in the championships before, most teams were very scared and nervous for what the team had to bring. November 8: Sorrow On November 8, the soccer team is filled with sorrow. The season of a lifetime had finally come to an end when everyone agreed it should not have. Falling with a 2-1 loss to Villa Joseph Marie marked the end for our seniors and brought tears to everyone’s eyes. Though, making it this far was an amazing victory in itself. Being the first class to enter states will forever be remembered and gave these seniors the most perfect way to end their high school careers. We wish the best of luck to those continuing their passion in college and congratulating them on how far they have come. #LSNews #LSPioneers #GirlsSoccer #Soccer

Some days are just better than

Some days are just better than others. After last week's win that gave head coach Mr. John Manion his 150th victory, the Pioneers were looking to make it 151 last night. Unfortunately, Cedar Crest had other plans. In a one-side match, the Lampeter-Strasburg football team fell to the Falcons 49-27. Cedar Crest's impressive offense scored 28 point in the first half to the Pioneers unlucky 13. It was more of the same in the second half as the Falcons piled on another 21. The team now stands with a record of 6-4 in the last game of the regular season. Click the link in the bio for more pictures.
