Protect Young Eyes



LCA hosted a Protect Young Eyes Seminar Thursday and Friday, November 8th.  Chris McKenna the founder of Protect Young Eyes spoke to parents and students about practical ways to handle technology in our homes.  He challenged everyone to use it in a way that honors God and ourselves.  If you did not have a chance to hear him speak take time to check out their website.  There are many helpful blogs and articles.  


Classroom Activities




Market Fair Day in World Studies.






Third grade field trip to the William Harris Homestead in Campton, GA.  This homestead dates from 1825.  Students experienced what life would have been like on a farm in the 1800's.  Volunteers gave demonstrations and lectures throughout their tour.





The fifth grade dressed up like idioms.


Service Projects



The elementary students brought an offering to chapel last week to donate to the Georgia Mountain Food Bank.  Every dollar can provide five meals for the hungry in our local community.  The display the students are holding in the photo represents the 625 meals provided by LCA students.




Two of the 5th grade students did a service project over the weekend for Off the Chain.  Off the Chain works to provide and build kennels for dogs that have to stay outside and owners that cannot afford to build a kennel.   At the house right behind the new weight room, Off the Chain built a new 20x30 kennel so this dog can be safe, and have a space to exercise.  Brianna Meadors and Justin Kurgan were a part of the build in the 40 degree temperatures on Saturday.

Private Movie Screening


Mrs. Destiny Yarbrough would like to invite all LCA families and faculty to a private screening of the film “Mattie The Discovery”.  Mattie is a redemptive story that is filled with revelation as it pertains to God’s unfailing love for all of us.  It is about a young girl who is taken on a timeless journey initiated by loss and motivated by revenge. But God, a Masterful Teacher orchestrated this journey in order for her to learn the true meaning of Mercy.


The show will be on Dec. 9th at 6:00 p.m. at 1600 Oakbrook Drive, Suite 510, Norcross, GA 30093.


There is no charge.  This is a fundraising event for the movie.  There will be a love offering taken at the event.
