/Thursday Notes: August 30th, 2018

Summer certainly flew by and we are already into a new school year! With over 400 students enrolled at LCA for the 2018-2019 school year and many new faculty and staff, we are expecting great things this year! We are SO happy you are a part of this journey with us and look forward to what is ahead for our school family this year! Each week, you will get an email letting you know that Thursday Notes are ready and available for you to view via our website. Thursday Notes are a snapshot of what’s happening at LCA each week and will provide information you need! Please be sure to read through them each week to stay up to date with all that is going on! You’ll find announcements, service hour opportunities, school needs, upcoming events and more! 

We hope and pray that you’ve had a great start to the year and that this year is the best one yet for your students! We love you and are so glad that you have chosen to be a part of our family!

Girls Volleyball

Girls Volleyball is underway and we are excited for a great season! We’ve had a great turnout this year and know a successful season is on it’s way! Check out the full schedule HERE and make plans to attend one of our matches this year to cheer on the Lady Eagles!!


Service Hours Opportunities

Speech and Debate season is upon us! We are finalizing the schedule in these next weeks and are planning on having a great season. These tournaments are typically Friday and/or Saturday’s at a local High School and are a BLAST! Picture 200-800 High School students from around the state in one place all trying to communicate messages that are important to them. Each tournament presents an opportunity for parents and families to earn quick service hours. At each tournament, we need volunteer judges to bring with our team to help judge events. THIS IS NOT HARD! All training will be provided at each tournament and most of the judges are brand new to speech and debate. Essentially, you will be handed a criteria sheet, listen to students speeches, dramas, or debates, and judge based on the outlined criteria on the sheet. You are also fed a meal and will have many snacks.
As an incentive for volunteer judges, I am offering DOUBLE SERVICE HOURS to all who come and help. I had one parent receive 22 hours last year from 1 Saturday tournament. Not only can you rack up service hours doing this, but you are making an impact on students lives from around the state!
If you’d like more information about judging and our schedule for the year, please contact Sean Musil. His email is sean.musil@lcaeagle.org.

Reality Town is fast approaching! This is a great event for our Junior High students to get a glimpse of what life is like in the real world. They will learn practical skills of finance like paying bills, grocery shopping, and keeping track of spending! For this event, we are in need of someone to help us in making debit/credit card readers out of wood or something of the like. (Sturdy material, not cardboard.) If you are interested in helping with this project, please email linda.seager@lcaeagle.org!

For the past several years we have been blessed with donations of special handmade prayer blankets to distribute to students who are experiencing injuries, illnesses, surgeries or loss of a family member, which keep them out of school for a prolonged time.  Unfortunately, we have exhausted our supply of blankets.  Because this has been such a blessing to the students who have received them, we would like to continue to provide them.

If you are interested in knitting, crocheting or sewing simple lap-sized blankets to be donated for distribution you will receive 7 service hours per blanket.  Please contact Angie.Justice@lcaeagle.org if this is something you would like to do.
