As the final days of this school year draw to a close, I would like to acknowledge the efforts made by our students, staff, board members, and parents in the Lake Country community during the course of this year. The extraordinary commitment made by all our staff, academic and support staff alike, means that we can continue to succeed and flourish as a learning community.
I would also like to express my gratitude to all for your generous support during my first year as LCA principal. I have enjoyed meeting parents throughout the year at various events and working with you to provide the best possible learning outcomes for your child. Mr. Bestul and I will both be returning to our respective roles in August and are excited to have another school year together to work with our LCA staff, families, and students.
I am delighted to report that the vast majority of our teachers are returning to LCA next school year which ensures great stability but there are some who will move on to new opportunities. Congratulations to Mrs. Smith (DI Teacher) and Ms. Sedlachek (Day Custodian) who are both retiring at the end of this school year! Ms. Luedke (1st-grade teacher) and Mrs. Godsey (ML Teacher) will both be moving on to new educational opportunities and we wish them the best of luck! We thank Ms. Hermann (Front Secretary) for her time in the main office this year assisting students and families in so many ways! I wish all our leavers every success in the future and sincerely thank them for their contribution to our school and students.
The school administration offices will remain open throughout June and August but will be closed for the month of July. Please check our school website, as well as Facebook and Instagram, frequently for updates throughout the summer.
Finally, I wish all our LCA families the very best for the summer and look forward to welcoming you all back, relaxed and refreshed for what promises to be another enjoyable and productive year.
It is hard to believe that we only have two weeks of school remaining for the 2022-23 school year! What a great year we have had at LCA as we have watched all our students partake in tremendous learning and personal growth. This week you will receive your students' Star reports for math and reading from the spring assessment students took over the past two weeks. We are proud of all the growth students have made this year and look forward to helping them continue to grow next school year!
We are especially proud of our 8th-grade students who will be graduating next week! Their hard work, dedication, and resilience have paid off, and we are incredibly proud of their accomplishments. Throughout their time at LCA, they have demonstrated exceptional growth and maturity, and we have no doubt that they are well-prepared for the challenges that lie ahead. We hope they cherish the memories from LCA and use them as a foundation for your future success. We wish them the best of luck in all their endeavors and know that they will continue to make us proud. We will be featuring each 8th-grade graduate on our Facebook and Instagram pages over the next two weeks! Follow us on these social media sites to keep up with all the happenings at LCA!
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8- May 12! We are grateful for our teaching staff that goes above and beyond for the students and families at Lake Country Academy. Their professionalism, expertise in their subject area, and compassion for children make them outstanding teaching staff to work alongside! We actually have a committee of teachers that organizes and ensures a fun and supportive work environment at LCA, but next week is an opportunity for our families to recognize our LCA staff! One of the most valued gifts that our teachers receive is notes of appreciation from LCA students and families. Please reach out next week to your child's teacher(s) to let them know how valued they are in our school community. This can be done through an email or a handwritten note or card from you and/or your child. It does not need to be long, (it definitely does not need to be 18 pages front and back) but simply sincere and from the heart. Thank you for all the support you provide to our staff in so many ways. It is truly with staff and families working together that LCA continues to be a school where our students can succeed!
