Capital project for Lansing CSD underway this summer:
Driving past the Lansing Central School District campus this summer, you may see some construction equipment, a few piles of dirt, traffic cones, and plenty of other activity throughout the campus.

LHS students win in "The New York Times Podcast Contest":
“Imagine yourself — or, perhaps, you and your friends — as hosts of your own podcast. What would you talk about?”
This was the challenge that students from Lansing High School were issued for a project in Andrea Huskie’s English 11 classes. The students were asked to find a new way to tell their stories through a podcast. What started as a project exploring new ways to tell a story with her classes, turned into LHS students winning The New York Times “First-Ever Student Podcast Contest.”
The idea for a unit on podcasts started earlier last year, when Andrea Huskie, Kim Gryko, and Ithaca College student teacher Zoe Sheehan were working on unit plans and discussing their favorite podcasts.
“We decided we would share particularly ...

The best of luck to the entire class as you move up to the High School!!! You will be missed!
Well, I don’t know where to start ! I have been with some of you since Elementary and Middle School afterschool, summer camp, recess, and lunches.

After Prom Party 2018 A Success!:
While Lansing High School students took over the dance floor at the Ithaca Hotel for the LHS Prom 2018, volunteers and event organizers were busy at The Rink transforming the space for the LHS After Prom Party. Just like previous years, the transformation was nothing short of impressive.
A total of 155 students – over 80 percent of the junior and senior class – entered The Rink for the After Prom Party to find that it was given a complete makeover for the evening. Like previous years, the facility was set up with a DJ, a tent with furniture inside, poker and black jack tables, a photo booth, a movie theatre, and much more. New this year was an escape room, an obstacle course, a Netflix binge watching room, and a giant slide – all of which students enjoyed ...

Lansing CSD moves to eight-player football:
One team, one goal, eight players.
For the 2018-19 school year, the Lansing Central School District will be moving to the eight-player high school football program.
WHAT IS EIGHT-PLAYER FOOTBALL?
In an effort to balance smaller enrollments and roster-sizes, eight-player football has become more popular around the region. Rather than having the conventional 11 players, eight-player football eliminates three positions on each side. These positions usually include two offensive tackles and a skill position player on offense and two defensive backs and a lineman on defense. The field for an eight-player game will remain the same dimensions for Section IV, with the traditional field width and length. The scores for eight-player football ...
