Message from the Principal

Welcome to Lankenau High School! I am honored and excited to be the new Principal of this incredible school. As a small, special-admissions school we offer a family-like environment.

 

As we start our new school year, I am excited to work with our dedicated staff to:

 

~Ensure 100% of our seniors apply and get accepted to college or have a post-secondary plan in place.

~Integrate our school’s theme of environmental science across the curriculum.

~Ensure our classrooms are driven by student knowledge and inquiry, where learners are engaged through rigorous instruction and presented with real-world problems to solve.

~Increase our partnerships with the community.

~Involve parents in the success of our school.

 

I look forward to an incredible 2016-2017 school year!

From a Setback to a Comeback

Many of you covered the story of the damage and devastation at Lankenau Environmental Science Magnet High School last week.  We genuinely appreciate your help in raising awareness of our vandalism.  We need your help again.

 

On the nights of February 15th and 16th vandals destroyed the grounds of Lankenau High School. Our school grounds were destroyed by vehicles, uprooting most of our grass, all of our gardens and creating significant track divots all through the property. This action has taken a toll on our staff, students, and neighboring community. Over the past five years, our school has put time into building gardens and other floral arrangements around the property. The purpose of this letter is to inform you about our online donation site.

 

As we continue to move forward in our rebuilding process, we are going to work on receiving grants and manpower to help restore the land. We are accepting financial donations, gift cards, volunteers, landscapers and construction workers with heavy machinery. Several individual businesses and nonprofit organizations in the community have already stepped in and contributed toward our rebuilding process. Additionally, The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society has come in and offered services and materials, we have received a donation from Elmer Kingkiner of Kingkiner Tree Service,  Michael Labetti of “Labetti Associates”, and Ray Pierce of “C&R Outdoor Services”.  Also our friendly neighbors have joined in our battle.  We greatly appreciate all of their help in contributing toward our rebuilding process! For our land to be  regrading and seeding, the cost is estimated to be about $25,000 to $30,000 worth of work. To restore the gardens will take an additional estimated cost of $12,000.  We  would like to inform you that we now have an online site available for donations through the Philadelphia Horticultural Society, and individuals who would like to donate in a monetary way, this is the vehicle we have.

 

There is more good news.  We are determined to rebuild and your help will make that possible.  Please consider a donation.
