GRANDPARENTS’ DAY at LCA is a fun event in September. We invite our grandparents to visit our classrooms, and we have a special Chapel for them! Grandparents’ Day is a half-day, so students are encouraged to go have lunch and spend the afternoon with their grandparents!
History Fair is a required activity for students in even grades up through 10th grade. Students research a topic they have chosen which meets the criteria of the National History Day Theme for the year. They use their research to create and exhibit, paper, webpage, documentary or performance to demonstrate their knowledge of the subject matter. Students are judged during the LCA History Fair and those who score high enough are invited to move on, in hopes of reaching the national level. LCA has had numerous students advance to the state level and a few even to the national level.

Imagine sitting in a carpet-filled room listening to fifth grade boy retelling an Old Jack tale or a young teenager’s person story relating how she feels about her brother moving to Hawaii. Picture a high school student recounting the classic misadventures of Peter Pan or a twelve-year-old retelling her own version of “The Little Red Hen” to a group of kindergartners. Envision a camping trip on which a Boy or Girl Scout shares a story about a gift that could be held in his or her hand. Marvel, as we have, at the students who speak of their grandmother’s smile, their mother’s heart, or their friend’s kind words. Imagine an older sister and younger brother telling a tale of sibling rivalry in tandem or a petite nine-year-old telling the classic tale of “Little Red Riding Hood” in Arabic. Imagine kids sharing their ideas, building stories, and coming together to enjoy laughing, crying, wondering and appreciating one another.
