Mr. Paul Covlin will be retiring at the end of this school year. He has had a tremendous career and we are so fortunate that he had chosen to finish his career with us at Lewis. He is a valued member of our community and we will miss him greatly.

We ask that any students who would like to attend, please do so with a family member.
