Level Up at LCA!
Level Up at LCA!
A Word From Our Headmaster
No School on Good Friday – April 19
Dear Parents,
Faculty and staff development is very important at LCA. The Executive Team has been working diligently to ensure that the maximum benefit is received from any money spent or time released from school. Given the imminent 1:1 Laptop Program, faculty development in this area is important. We have scheduled a well-known presenter, who will be running a full day workshop for faculty regarding integrating technology effectively, for Good Friday, April 19. April 19 was previously scheduled as a half day for students and has now been changed to a no school day due to the training workshop.

*Important Date Change: Friday, April 19 will now be a No School Faculty Professional Development Day, rather than the previously scheduled Early Dismissal day.

With our new 1:1 laptop program launching next school year, we believe this is an important step in the training process.

International Student Visitors
We said goodbye to our 12 Korean Short term students at the end of last week.

It was a great time to share cultures, make new friends, and help our students see how small our world is; and how important it is to see others with the eyes of Jesus.

Many thanks to our buddy students, National Junior Honor Society, Middle School ASB, faculty, and host families for all of their help in making their visit special!
