/Thursday Notes: September 13, 2018

Of course we all want our children to be successful in life! We want them to make good grades, perform well on tests and grow more and more in their studies each year. However, we also want to be sure our kids are growing as humans, too. That they are learning how to be good people in this world. That when they see a friend in need, they do something. 

“Moved with compassion, Jesus reached out and touched him. ‘I am willing,’ He said. ‘Be healed!’ Mark 1:42

Over and over again, the Bible continually talks about how Jesus was “…moved with compassion…” when he saw those in need. Compassion should MOVE us to action. When we see someone hurting, it should move us to action. We should be motivated to DO SOMETHING. And when we’re moved, our children will take notice and do the same. 

Education is important and necessary. Academic growth and learning are vital. Being like Jesus is eternal.

Let’s be more like Him today. 🙂

LCA will be selling donuts tomorrow morning at 8am in the Elementary School lobby! Donuts are just $1 so be sure to stop by and help support our school!!


Football

Tomorrow night is Football Homecoming!! We will begin with our final Spirit Week dress up day, Eagles Wear White, and then head down to the game with kickoff at 4pm! We would LOVE to have all our LCA family join us for this great evening! Let’s support those Mighty Eagles!!


Men’s Volleyball

LCA has our very first Men’s Volleyball team and they will hosting a tournament THIS weekend! We would love to see our LCA families out to support our boys and enjoy a day of volleyball! The tournament schedule is available HERE!


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.)

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.
