LA News -- Week of June 17th



Founder's Note:

Parents, I was thinking about encouragement. To be full of courage. To impart courage to others. I want to thank each of you for being courageous. It takes courage to try to raise children who will love, serve, and fear the Lord in a culture that is more and more opposed to Him and to Biblical values. Sometimes our own children don't cooperate and we feel the pressure to change courses or give in, but God is with us and knows our hearts.


Although, we go to many different churches, as a Christian school community we hold our faith in Christ as common ground. We know He is the only path to salvation. We know the Bible is always right and never wrong. We know that no matter how crazy the world gets, that God's word & Biblical values are unchanging. So here we are living in a culture that murders the unborn, attacks gender and God's design, while calling evil good and good evil. Yet in the midst of that you are a parent living day by day to love and honor the Lord. Thank you for that!


As we see culture and society move away from godly values, we each must understand that you may face opposition as parents. There is an enemy to the gospel and that enemy will use gossip, lies, distractions, temptations, and all manners of things to get you off course. Jesus said, in John 15:18, 20 - "If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you....If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you..." Persecution can come in all sorts of ways through social media, society, ungodly laws, and more but it can at times even come from friends or family who don't understand your journey, your faith, or your values. Darkness will try to discourage you and isolate you, eve lie about you or bring you pressures from every side. But don't be discouraged! Don't lose heart! Jesus told His disciples in John 16:33 "....In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world."


So keep up the good work, parents. Don't grow discouraged. Don't give up! The Lord is with you. He sees you and your efforts. He sees your children. He sees their battles. He has overcome the world. Stay the course. Don't let anyone get you off track to the left or the right. Hang in there and BE ENCOURAGED!

NEXT: Basketball M-W, THIS WEEK, June 17-19th.

We are fortunate that elite basketball trainer Jason Otter has a change in his schedule and is willing to join our 3-day camp next week. Normally his camps are $800 a player for 4 days so our students are getting a fantastic investment for only $25 with lunch included! Here's the new schedule:

M-W, 2nd-6th grade 8 am-12p for camp, pick up at 1230p.

Grades: 7-12 sessions will be 1230-5 pm.

Lunch will be served at noon for everyone.

ALL junior and senior high basketball team members (boys and girls) are required to attend the afternoon sessions. All upper-level students can also participate in the morning sessions to work out and help out. It's three great days of basketball. ALL LA students entering 2nd grade and up are urged to attend. It's going to be a great time!


Theater Camp

All Theater Camp students should already have signed up so that they can receive scripts to prepare for auditions. These will take place on the first day of camp.



Yearbooks for Sale

Yearbooks for both 2022-23 and 2023-24 are now on sale on the LA online store! They are $20 each and will be available for pick-up later in the summer.
