Students who achieve certain criteria are eligible to receive a school letter that can be displayed on a letter jacket. They may letter in a variety of areas including academics, athletics and activities.
The first time a student letters in athletics they receive an orange chenille letter “L,” a gold bar for lettering, and a gold emblem for their sport. They can only receive the “L” once. The next time they letter in a sport, academics or activity, they will get a gold bar and the corresponding emblem.
Students who are honored as All-Conference 1st Team receive a blue star and a plaque, and there are other pins for league championships and placing at State.
The cost of a jacket is approximately $200-300, as they are customized with the student’s last name, graduation year, and activities. The jackets take anywhere from two- to six-weeks to order, so plan ahead if you are looking to do this as a gift.
Here are some local stores to shop for letter jackets:
Sportline, 6543 Wadsworth Blvd., Arvada, CO 80003 303-421-6751
Female Students: Please note the LHS chenille "L" is the largest in the district, making it a bit difficult to fit on smaller, fitted, letter jackets. If you find your "L" is too large for your jacket, bring it back to the Athletic Office and we will give you a smaller-sized "L."
