Hello, <<First Name>>.

LAA is a busy place! Fall Festival and parent/teacher conferences are happening this coming week on Sunday and Thursday (respectively). Also, we have a day and a half off of school this week! Be sure to read everything carefully so you are well-informed about your student's school.
"For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” 
-2 Timothy 1:7

Principal MatthewsPrincipal's Message

Brrrr!! What happened? Are we going from summer to winter in one day? As you well know, our first quarter is rapidly coming to an end – like today! Thus, all grades are being evaluated for the first quarter. We look forward to discussing these with all parents next Thursday during parent/teacher conferences. If you have not already signed up, do so today! Our academic awards ceremony will also be held this coming Thursday at 8:15 am in the fellowship hall. Don’t forget there is no school on Friday October 19, as well as Thursday and Friday October 25-26. We are very excited about our fall festival this Sunday. Remember this is a required school day with lots of fun new activities this year for all ages. Remember, only you can prevent forest fires!

We ask all parents to schedule a specific time slot with their student’s teacher(s) that afternoon or evening. You should have received instructions on how to do so from your student’s teacher(s). Contact them immediately if you are not already signed up.
Cookie Dough Update!
Thank you so much for your participation in the eighth grade class fundraiser! We sold around 250 units and raised $2100!! Orders will be delivered around October 22, and we will alert you to the specific date as soon as we know it. It will be important to pick it up on the day they are delivered as we have no way to store them.
Health Nugget - Health Hack for your Brain 
“Just like the other organs in your body, your brain requires certain nutrients to function properly. Whole, unrefined grains, such as brown rice, quinoa, and whole-grain cereals, provide energy to help you concentrate. Eating healthy fats found in pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds, and walnuts are also good for overall brain health. To improve memory, choose foods with anthocyanins, including blueberries and other dark red and purple fruits and vegetables."
Your Box Tops for Education may be Expiring Soon!!
Some Box Tops for Education will expire in November of 2018. If you have any sitting around in your home, bring them in asap so we don’t lose this valuable resource!
