January 2021 has brought many new and returning students to LCS. We are rejoicing and thankful to God for these new blessings. Welcome Adam, Andy, Arthur, Janell, Lydia, Paige, Rory, Sawyer and welcome back Jakob, Jonas, Jozhua, Joel and Graham. And there are a few more that we might add to that list this week!

With the potential of snowy and icy weather upon us please be reminded that if a “snow day” is announced students will not come to the building, but will also not be assigned any “school work” for the day. A snowman or snow fort would be cool options.
The next time you are in the building stop by the fourth grade room long enough to observe the galaxies display Mrs. Highfield has placed in her windows while her class discovers the wonders of God’s creation.
After considering the challenges of preparing for the sportsman’s banquet in March we have determined there are too many unknowns to be able to move ahead with the event this year. We will postpone it until next school year when we hope the Covid effect will have been eliminated or at least significantly diminished. Our PTO is evaluating other ways to assist in fundraising during the remainder of the year to help offset the postponement of the banquet. If you would like to participate in the PTO but don’t quite know how to get involved just contact the office and we’ll give you all the information you’ll need. It’s a great way to get to know other parents and help the school at the same time.
Mrs. Carol Cook has led a group of parents for the last few years who are committed to praying for our students, staff, board and the various needs of the school. Moms in Prayer quietly has done and continues to do a yeoman’s job of supporting the school in this critical ministry. This is Mrs. Cook’s final year at the school, as her youngest child will be graduating and moving on to college. If you feel prayer is a ministry you would like to become involved in or lead please contact the office and they will put you in touch with Mrs. Cook. Next Sunday evening at 5:00 we will be praying as a school for all things LCS and thanking God for all he has done and is continuing to bless us with this year. We will meet in room 6 at 5:00 p..m. and finish by 6:00 p.m. We’d love to have you join us. Just drop in and enjoy the hearts of other LCS families as we acknowledge the importance of God in our school.

The official start date for practices will be on Monday, January 18th unless there are changes along the way. I will be updating TeamSnap in the days ahead as I continue to make practice/game schedule changes, but I wanted you to at least get this news as it came out today. Although it sounds like you will be back for in-person learning after the break, we won’t be able to get started right away on the official basketball practice side. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns along the way......really looking forward to getting started. Thanks! Coach Jason Stiles Athletic Director | Varsity BB/Golf Coach

Moms in Prayer has prayed for school families and issues throughout the summer and are continuing into the fall. Their group is very disciplined and they take their ministry seriously. However, we’d love to have the number of parents involved in the ministry grow. Many of the participants represent older students in the school and it would be beneficial to have an influx of moms of younger children, as well. It is not a major time commitment and we know that God honors prayer and those who fervently seek his will in their lives and the life of the school. Plus, it’s a way you can support the school without ever reaching for your purse.
Just a reminder that we need your consistent oversight of your children’s health. Please review with each child how they feel and check their temperature each day prior to dropping them at school. If they are not well, please do not have them attend.that day. Have them return when they are healthy and able to participate again.
Please note that we are a peanut free and tree nut free classroom for both preschool and prek classrooms. Please be sure that your child’s snacks and lunch are peanut free and tree nut free! Thank you!
