LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES- GET INVOLVED!
Get involved! Make a DIFFERENCE! How will YOU make an IMPACT on campus?
The Leadership Department of Don Lugo High School offers different classes that are A-G compliant and all involve raising student participation on campus. All coursework includes leadership training and hands on experiences in identifying team work, student inclusion and of course CONQUISTADOR PRIDE AND SPIRIT. Our leadership program allows for all students to get involved on campus in different ways. Each of these classes run independently of each other but all qualify for leadership honors and Senior cords during graduation time. Don Lugo is the only high school in the district that offers a freshmen leadership class.
1. ASB is for students who are elected officers or appointed commissioners. Rallies, spirit weeks and dances will be organized and planned through the Associated Student Body. This will be 4th period. All elected officers 10th-12th grade are in this class. Freshmen officers remain in freshmen leadership until 2nd semester.
More about ASB: The Associated Student Body Office is located in the Student Activities Office and is the center for all Don Lugo events. The office handles activities and services for the entire student population. It sells ASB cards, school event tickets and spirit wear through the student store. Information about dances, rallies or student government is available from the Director of Activities, Mrs. Farrah Rigo-Witt. The Associated Student Body (ASB) is the body responsible for student affairs such as approving the organization of clubs and activities, selling ASB cards, and planning dances. ASB officers are elected by the student body and are expected to conduct themselves in a responsible manner at all times.
2. Renaissance is dedicated to “raising the bar” for all Conquistadores through a school-wide celebration of a variety of accomplishments. Renaissance is a national program found in junior high and high schools around the country. It is our program for student/staff/faculty recognition of academic excellence and other achievements here at Don Lugo High School.

3. Leadership Fundamentals- an all encompassing class that goes through the basics of leadership training and skill building, including introduction to getting involved on campus and learning how to take our school culture to the next level.
