“Where you make an imPACt every day!”

We appreciate all of our volunteers who have assisted with the many different activities we have sponsored throughout the year.  LCA parents are the best!

Thank you so much for your interest in showing the staff of LCA how much we appreciate them throughout the school year.

We would like to first introduce ourselves, Mrs. Angie Lesan: Jackson is in 6th grade and Sydney is in 5th grade, Mrs. Meredith Moneymaker: Taylor is in 5th grade, and Mrs. Lacy Young: Kylee is in 5th grade. We have several years of experience and love working with other parents to show appreciation for our teachers and staff.

We have organized 3 events, but are welcome to additional ideas.

Monday, Nov. 30th is a Teacher Workday. Our theme is “We are so thankful”.

Monday, March 7 is Teacher Workday. This will be a Spring Salad Luncheon. More details to come after the holidays.

The week of May 2-May 6 is National Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week. More details to come after the holidays. If you have any suggestions, please let us know.

We have collected a list of “favorite things” from each staff member. This information is available in a Staff Appreciation binder located in the foyer of the school and on the “Staff Favorites” tab on this webpage. You are welcome to take a picture of any of the “favorite things” forms or print a copy from the website.

    If any of the open slots for committee chairpersons interest you, or if you are interested in serving on a committee, please let me know. We’re excited to see this group take off and provide outstanding educational and fun experiences for our students!

    The Staff Appreciation Committee has asked me to inform you that a spreadsheet of “Staff Favorites” is located on our school website. You can find it by clicking on the “Family Life” tab. If you are wondering how you can randomly surprise your child’s teacher, bus driver, or office staff with something special, or perhaps you’re wondering what they might like for Christmas, that would be a great place to look!

    Thank you for all of the wonderful support you provide our school. LCA parents are the best!
