-Ephesians 4:29

Principal MatthewsPrincipal's Message

Howdy-doody! I hope all is well with you. Our winter sports day was a super success! Our skiing parents and students had a blast in the frigid weather and our hockey players had a blast at the ice arena. The school shared a lot of love this week with Valentine’s Day, but our main focus was the love Jesus gives to each and every one of us. In keeping with the safety of our school, we now only have four fire drills left (out of eleven!) before school lets out. We also do intruder alerts and tornado drills throughout the year. Remember that there will be no school Feb. 18 due to President’s Day, so your kiddies can stay up a little late the night before to attend our Junior/Senior Benefit! We have a new member of the LAA staff, student librarian Laeticia DesForges, who has been spending time every morning working to keep our books organized. Our science fair is Sunday, March 3, and the students should all be working hard to prepare their scientific method projects. Keep in mind that the third quarter will be ending mid-March. A very important reminder, only you can prevent forest fires!

This year, the students will be putting on the play “Papa Was a Preacher”. A delicious dinner will also be served, and childcare is included in the ticket price. Tickets are available now from Mr. or Mrs. Ruckle or any of the senior class members for $15. We hope you will join us for this evening of fun!
Music Festival
All parents of students in Grades 6-12, Music Festival is coming up March 14-17! Fourteen schools from across Kentucky and Tennessee participate in this annual event, giving students from smaller schools a chance to experience the fun of being in a larger choir/orchestra/band ensemble. We leave Thursday morning, have practice on Thursday afternoon and most of the day Friday (with a fun evening out on Thursday), then have two performances: a sacred concert Friday evening and a secular one on Saturday night. Our students stay in boys/girls dormitories and eat at the campus cafeteria. Permission slips will be coming out on Tuesday. The cost for each student will be $85. Watch  your email for full details (or ask your student for the paper copy we will hand out). This is a fun event for anyone who wishes to participate! Permission slips and payments will be due Wednesday, February 27.

Health Nugget - Breakfast Brain Power (Pt. 2)
“It's important for kids to have breakfast every day, but what they eat in the morning is crucial too. Choosing breakfast foods that are rich in whole grains, fiber, and protein while low in added sugar may boost kids' attention span, concentration, and memory — which they need to learn in school.
Kids who eat breakfast are more likely to get fiber, calcium, and other important nutrients. They also tend to keep their weight under control, have lower blood cholesterol levels and fewer absences from school, and make fewer trips to the school nurse with stomach complaints related to hunger.”
