Good day out there, LVR Community.

Thanks to Ms. Kroker for this week's pic from our Creative Writing class, which we were able to offer this year based on our course selection process around this time last year.  Be sure to check out the details below about course selections for next year, as this process is the main driver for our course offerings next year.  I am looking forward to profiling the return of LVR's 24-hour Writing Contest coming up later this winter too!
