LCCHS CELEBRATES 50 YEARS OF ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AND SERVICE TO THE ENGLISH COMMUNITY

Â
INTRODUCTION
For 50 consecutive years, young people in the English community of LaSalle and its neighboring cities have been served by an English high school on 9th Avenue, in LaSalle.



To commemorate this rather remarkable event, LCCHS invites all former students and staff members to come together for what promises to be an exciting and memorable “50th Anniversary Homecoming and Reunion†, that will take place â€

à December 28-30, 2006. Â



A SHORT HISTORY OF OUR BELOVED LCCHS
It was in September of 1955 that Leroux High School opened its doors, as an English Elementary and High School in the building at 240 †9th Avenue (currently the C building of LCCHS).  For 10 years, students attended classes and graduated from Leroux, until the first major change to the school took place in June, 1965.



It was at that time that our neighbours at Ecole Supà rieur LaSalle, the French-language high school, moved out of the 140 †9th Avenue building (currently the A building of LCCHS) and into a new site on Centrale Street that was the newly minted Ecole Secondaire Cavelier-de-LaSalle.



The high school students from Leroux High were moved next door, into the vacated 140-9th Avenue building, and the school name was changed to LaSalle Catholic High School. Â The 240-9th Avenue building became Leroux Elementary School.



This situation continued for the next five years while, at the same time, LaSalle’s English population grew at amazing speed.  It quickly became apparent that a much larger school would be needed to accommodate the rapidly expanding number of English high school students and, in 1971, a major construction project was undertaken to join the two buildings and move the elementary kids from Leroux to Allion.



The new, much larger high school, stretching from Centrale street to Broadway, was renamed LaSalle Catholic Comprehensive High School (LCCHS) and, at its peak, housed some 2200 students per year.



In 2004, the school name was changed to LaSalle Community Comprehensive High School, to reflect the shift in Quebec from denominational school boards to language based school boards.



Whatever the school name and in whatever building, LCCHS and its faculty have had a major influence on thousands of fine young people, many of whom are still young at heart, and we hope to bring as many of them together to take a stroll down memory lane, reminisce and renew old friendships and acquaintances.



The major homecoming event will be our 50th Anniversary Reunion, on Friday evening, December 29th, 2006, at LCCHS, at which we are expecting some 2500 people to attend.  Mark your calendars so that you don’t miss this great opportunity to celebrate with your former classmates and teachers.  Each graduation year will have a classroom assigned to facilitate meeting up with its respective alumni and there will be music and dancing in the gymnasiums and refreshments for all tastes!



MORE TO COME !
