I recently had a former student (Thanks Marissa) reach out to me to share a TikTok video that makes a connection between our current situation and our novel. This has inspired me to ask you...
WELCOME! Here's a place for our Pride families to get updates on what's happening at LTH.
Operating as usual
6th grade scientists worked collaboratively to build roller coasters. Their goal was for a marble to pass through successfully. Lots of trial runs and rebuilds happened to meet the goal. The PRIDE persisted!
Ms. Lair’s seventh grade scientist dissected frogs this week. Learning conversations were on point as the students take educated guesses as to what was what. Mr. Ingram even joined in on the fun!
Tonight was the Spring Choir concert. All the choirs came together to sing this last number. The choirs work so hard all year and it shows!
Great job Mrs. Shafer and accompanist Mrs. Ashton! The show was amazing!

Ms. Johnson’s 7th grade science class experienced frog dissections this week. So fun!
Tonight LTH hosted the district’s Pride Awards and Retirement ceremony. Our very own Coach Lytle and Mrs. Newkirk won the Pride awards! We love our specials team and these two have stepped many times for our school family this year!
Our select choir also sang the National Anthem and they did amazing! Thank you Mrs. Shafer for leading their performance.
Today we honored our Springs sports! We are so proud of all of our athletes!
L. Thomas Heck Middle School PTO spoiled our staff with a yummy lunch from Rudy’s!

Today we welcomed 5th graders who will be 6th graders at LTH next year on campus. They came from Barbara B. Robey, Dreaming Summit and Palm Valley. It was a fun filled day with lots of excitement. Can’t wait to have these future PRIDE members here in August!
The Lady Pride fought hard in the semi finals and fell a little short. We are so proud of their effort, heart and determination! Thanks for a great season ladies!🦁
Mrs. Shafer’s music gives students the opportunity to not only learn about music but learn to play instruments as well. Check out these two 7th graders practicing their newly acquired skill!
Congrats to Kelcie Christofferson, our LTH teacher of the year!!!
Ms. Christofferson is our drama teacher and she goes above and beyond for our PRIDE family. This year she has directed a musical (two plays coming this Spring), hosts a lunch bunch for students, took over a homeroom class and countless other helpful things around campus.
