Frank Jacinto Elementary School
Frank Jacinto Elementary opened in the fall of 2004 and was the first new school in Lorain built in the 21st century. The school was named after Mr. Frank Jacinto, who was not only a Lorain native, but also a leader in the Hispanic community, a former teacher in the school system, and the first Hispanic school principal in the State of Ohio. Mr. Jacinto also published a book on the history of Lorain’s Hispanic community in 1999, titledThe Mexican Community in Lorain, Ohio. The school is designed to hold 450 students and was created with an investment of $8.1 million, of which nearly 80% came from the state of Ohio.

A Football Program That's About More Than Football
LHS football players Sly Worthy, Carlos Chavis and Solomon Villarreal helped prepare for the grand re-opening of the Carnegie Building (the old library) on Sunday. This beautiful old building has been restored with most of its original furnishings. It is a huge piece of Lorain's history. It served as Lorain's library from 1903 until 1957. The involvement by these young men is another example of how our football program is about more than making a difference on the field--it's about making a difference in the community as well. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

Elementary Buildings to House PreK-5 Next Year
For the past 2 months, Superintendent Jeff Graham has been meeting with a committee of stakeholders to help answer a long-standing question: Will LCS elementary schools continue to function as “neighborhood schools” serving PreK-5 next year? Or should they reconfigure as “cluster schools” in which buildings close to one another will split into grades PreK-2 and 3-5 sister schools?
