Each month at Lake Country Academy we focus on one core virtue. Our core virtues allow our school community to talk about character traits that make all of us good citizens in our school, city, and world! Our school community constantly engages in cooperation throughout the day to ensure that all of a child's needs are tended to--both at LCA and at home. We view our staff and parents/guardians as partners in ensuring that students are successful in school. How can you be a partner in your child's education?
We see student success in the classroom when our staff members and parents/guardians are working together to ensure the student is reaching his/her full potential! Thank you for helping model cooperation between home and school this month, and throughout the year, as we educate your child(ren) at LCA.
STEM continues to grow this year as we added 6th grade to our class schedule and purchased new equipment. Some of our larger purchases included:
These new items allow the students to touch and explore materials that are used in STEM jobs every day. They work with their classmates to problem solve solutions, think critically to come up with a unique solution and celebrate each other's successes. A portion of Shake Out 2022 funds was dedicated to growing this program. It wouldn't have been possible without the generous donations of the parents. Thank you!

We are sharing several programs offered to all school families in the community:
ReBIKE Kid's Bike Giveaway - A local volunteer group that refurbishes bicycles will be giving away small, 18-24" bikes on Thursday, 9/8, 6-8 p.m. and Saturday, 9/10, starting at 9 a.m. Kids must be accompanied by an adult and they will be distributed on a first come/first serve basis until gone. 810 St. Clair Ave (Paradigm Coffee)
Food4Thought is a weekend food backpack program and works to help fill the gap between the school breakfast/lunch programs and FoodShare. Each student who participates receives food on a weekly basis during the school year. This will include some fresh fruit, but mostly consists of ready-to-eat or easy-to-heat food items. If you would like your child to be part of this program, please email the office. Start date is to be determined.
32nd Annual Coats for Kids - Donations of new coats, hats, and gloves for children and adults are being collected by Reinbold-Novak Funeral Home at 1535 S. 12th through October 31. To receive a coat, visit the Salvation Army Community Center at 710 Pennsylvania on November 3, 12-7 p.m.
