Principal's Message

Wow, is God great! Why am I saying this? What he has done for our school this summer has been phenomenal! Let me cite some instances. We have 88 students and counting, which we believe is the highest amount at LAA ever. Our worthy student donations have been wonderful this year, and additional donations have allowed us to get new floors in the high school as well as 21 new laptops. (We now have a 2 to 1 ratio of students to computers!) We are very excited to have two amazing new faculty, a super Algebra II teacher as well as an awesome co-teacher in Grades 1-4. We are incredibly grateful also for the rest of our faculty who have all returned to continue their positive influence over our students. 2018-2019 promises to have many more blessings in store and we are all excited about the future of our school. My office door is always open should you want to stop by and say hello. And of course, remember that only you can prevent forest fires!

Students in grades PreK – 2 MUST have a parent accompany them, and all parents are welcome to join us for the day. Tickets are $3 each and include parking, children age 5 and under are free. Students must bring a sack lunch or at least $8 to purchase lunch.

Permission Slips Due this Tuesday
Each student must turn in two permission slips by next Tuesday, August 21. Paper copies were sent home today, or see links below to print. The first slip is for the state fair trip next Thursday. The second permission slip is for visits to Ideal Care, a nearby nursing home. (Our classrooms take turns visiting there for an hour or two each month.) Thank you for your promptness!

S.A. Icebreaker
Next week on Friday, August 24th, we will be hosting our annual Icebreaker. This event is run by Student Association and is done in the beginning of every year for the students to get to know each other and "break the ice" through fun activities. This year, students will be participating in certain activities that would involve them getting wet, so we ask that you send your child to school in clothes that are appropriate and comfortable to get wet in and a pair of dry clothes for the ride home. Thank you in advance and we hope this will be the start of a great year!
Music Lessons
Our school offers individual piano and voice lessons, taught by Jim and Martha Eberenz during the school day. Click here for complete information and details on how to sign up. Spaces are limited, so do not delay.
LAA Text Alerts – Sign up now!
All parents, especially those who are new to our LAA family, please be sure that you are signed up for our text alert system. We use this system to keep you up to date with activities, deadlines and weather delays or closings. It only takes a moment! Simply text @laanews to 81010 from your mobile phone to get signed up. Be sure not to include any spaces in the text, as the subscription will not be completed if you do.
Box Tops for Education
We participate in box tops for education, so clip those box tops and bring them in to the office! They are on many products everyone uses, so keep your eyes open for them.

If you shop regularly at Kroger, please take a moment to sign up for their community rewards program. It does not cost you anything, and Kroger will donate to our school based on the amount of sales we have from families that are signed up. This past quarter we had 31 families participating and earned $175! It only takes a minute to help us raise funds for the school without costing yourself a dime! You can register your Kroger shoppers card online today at LAA’s NPO number is 84345, or you can search by name to add LAA as your preferred charity.
Tuition Payments
Remember that the tuition is due by the 20th of each month and is considered late after that date. If your payment is not received on time, your account will be considered delinquent and your child may be subject to suspension. If you have any questions, you may contact Arden Hagele at 813-310-3839 or at
Health Nugget - Brain Training
“Scientists have made an amazing discovery: the adult brain can grow in response to regular demands placed on it. The exercise of the brain is much like the exercise of the body. It helps keep us mentally fit and increases our mental ability. When choosing activities for your brain, be careful to avoid those that require activity with no real meaningful application or usefulness. Activities that increase brain fitness will include information and/or exercises that improve your performance in other meaningful endeavors. Whichever activity you decide on, be sure to regularly exercise your brain just as you would the rest of your body. You are never too old or young to give your brain the consistent workout it deserves!.”
