/Thursday Notes-October 19, 2017

Christians are not called to be boring.  We are called to live life to the fullest! So whatever your God-given destiny is, embrace it with passion! Leading a passionate, purpose-filled life should not be optional; it’s the only way to live! We only have one chance to make a difference and to do all that God has called us to do. Our brief moment on this earth isn’t a dress rehearsal. It’s the real deal, y’all.  So, be authentic in your faith. Be in the world, but not of it. God is going to do amazing things in you and through your life! 

   “The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.” John 10:10

Elementary Help

This year in elementary (grades K-5), we have created an economic system in which the students get paid to for jobs they perform in their classroom and receive bonuses as rewards! They have been saving up their money to spend in our elementary store, but we need items!  This is a great opportunity to demonstrate how currency is passed and allow the students to make decisions about their hard earned money!

We are using the program www.myclasseconomy.org which states:“My Classroom Economy is a program that enables any educator to teach children financial responsibility through fun, experiential learning….By bringing real-world scenarios into the classroom, students see the impact of their decisions to save, spend, and budget.”

Donations are simple and easy and can be things from the Dollar Store, toys, books, candy, etc. are great! (No nuts, please!) For every 20 items/candy or 5 books, we are offering a $5 bonus to that student!  We are also looking for volunteers to run the store, collect money, and give back change. A great way to earn service hours, as well! If you’re interested in helping out, please talk with your child’s teacher!

 


Traffic Flow

We have had a great year so far with the travel flow and few problems. Please remember that when coming from the West to use the West Entrance and when coming from the East to use the East entrance and the same for departures. This will help the flow tremendously and help to avoid unnecessary accidents.  Also, as a reminder that our blacktop becomes a playground for our elementary grades. If you are planning to remain at the school after than 8:45am, please do not park between the school and the basketball hoops. Thanks so much for helping us keep things running smoothly at LCA!

International Travel

Come with us to GREECE!

 As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, it is critical for our students to become more culturally aware and globally-minded. To be able to experience the global classroom first-hand and see what they have been studying in their classes come to life is truly amazing. It gives them new perspectives- not only of themselves, but also of the world around them!

We are pleased to announce that we are taking students on an educational tour to Greece during April of 2018 (Spring Break). What is it like to live in a country where classical mythology and ancient history still have a presence in everyday life? In the capital of Athens, namesake of the goddess Athena, we will walk in the footsteps of ancient Greeks at the Acropolis – and in the footsteps of current residents in the Plaka district. In Delphi, Epidaurus and Cape Sounion, learn how an old belief in mythological figures still influences medicine, politics and philosophy.

Space for this program is limited!
