Hello, <<First Name>>.

We hope everyone is planning to come out for a great Game Night tomorrow evening! Please be sure also to read the details about our annual LAA Spring Vespers on Friday evening, May 3, in which nearly every student has a part. The school year is wrapping up quickly! Be sure you know what to expect!
“As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. ‘Don’t be alarmed,’ he said. ‘You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.’” 
-Mark 16:5,6

Principal MatthewsPrincipal's Message

Is this not gorgeous weather? We are progressing very well through the final weeks of school. Again, please make sure your student is on target with their assignments. We hope you are enjoying the long weekend  and are able to reflect on Christ’s closing days on this earth. What a wonderful Savior we have! We just started baptismal class and so far we have seven students signed up. If you are interested in your son or daughter taking the class, please contact me. Parents of seniors and eighth graders, class trips are coming soon so be sure you have all the details from their sponsors. Our music teacher is well into rehearsing for our spring vespers, so make sure that you are free on May 3 to bring your student and enjoy this program. The suspense continues to mount as our yearbook is en route to the school! Have a blessed week and look forward to seeing you around campus. Remember that not reading your Bible can lead to truth decay!
