Thursday Notes: October 3rd, 2019
Tomorrow is a HALF DAY for students! School will dismiss at 11:30am! Enjoy your early start to the weekend!
Thank you SO much to all who helped out, volunteered and raised money during our Fun Run! We had a successful fundraiser and met our goal! We couldn’t have done it without you!!
Once again it is time for our Science Fair for grades 3, 5, 7 & 9!! This year our Science Fair will be held on Tuesday, December 3rd. This is an opportunity for all students to discover the hidden scientist within themselves and to explore those unanswered questions!
Who: 3rd, 5th, 7th & 9th graders
Date and Location: This year’s fair will be held on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 in the LCA gymnasium.
Fair Set Up: Exhibits should be brought to the school and set up between 8:00 and 8:30 the morning of the fair. All projects must be in place no later than 8:30 am.
Judging: Judging will begin at 8:45 am. Students will be judged on evidence of the use of the scientific method as well as on the student’s own knowledge of his/her experiment. Although parents are encouraged to help their children with the experiments and exhibit display, the student needs full knowledge and understanding of the experiment. The student should be able to fully explain what the experiment was about, how it was performed, the results obtained and the conclusions of the experiment in relation to their hypotheses. Grade 3 will go through the judging process; however, the students will not be given 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place ribbons. Instead, students will be awarded a special participation ribbon. Third grade students do not go on to district but will go through the same procedures so they can prepare for the future.
Parents and Public: The fair will be closed to all, except teachers, judges and students during the judging period. Exhibits will be open for parents and public viewing December 3rd from 1:00 to 2:30 pm (after judging is complete).
Removal of Exhibits: All exhibits need to be removed between 3:00 and 3:30 pm December 3.

Do you love to travel? Do you love to experience new foods, new people, new cultures? If you said yes we would love to have you join us on our next tour to England! We will be going in the spring of 2021. If you would like to see the full itinerary, please click on the following link and come join us on a trip of a lifetime!
Attached is a flow chart for traffic here at LCA. I know there are a lot of arrows on the picture but I promise it is not that hard to read. If you are entering from the West or exiting to go west, please use the west entrance/exit. If you are entering from the east or exiting to go east, please do so using the east entrance/exit. Also, in the mornings, we have a “drive thru” drop off zone. This is for parents that are not exiting their car but just dropping off their students at the door. If you plan on getting out of the car with your student, please use the other lane to go around and park your vehicle in the parking spots. We want to keep our kids safe and appreciate you helping us to do so.
