LID Blog - Bigger, Badder and Bodacious...er? ~ August 28, 2018

Welcome back, or welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. Last year, you ONLY got 17 installments of the LID Blog (and 19 installments of The Great SIS Adventure blog, which can be found here). We can do better. 

As a reminder, this little blog will come to your inbox every 2-3 weeks, but you are also welcome to subscribe to the blog from ANY email address by going directly to https://harkerlid.blogspot.com/ and entering your email in the right-hand column - how handy!

LID TEAM UPDATES & ANNOUNCEMENTS

We'll have a section for LID Updates in each blogpost. This installments' update wouldn't be complete if we didn't give you a chance to re-watch (or watch for the first time), our "The Spice LIDs Present: Wannabe" (turn on the captions in the lower right-hand corner to get the full effect)
