Dear Parents,

Welcome to the LCA family. It truly is our privilege to partner with you in the education of your child.

Our goal in Lower School is to provide a strong educational foundation for each student by providing a challenging and loving educational environment. Today's students need to be able to think deeply and critically, collaborate with one another, and problem solve. We need to assure that our students are not only forming a strong knowledge base, but that they can also use and apply what they are learning.

While providing a strong educational experience, we also strive to develop a biblical worldview in every student. It's imperative in our world to help our children see and understand that our everyday lives and our walk with Christ are one. We want our students to see the story of Christ woven through history and into each of our lives.

Our goal is to provide a safe and strong community. Every year I meet with students in August and talk about sharks, jellyfish, and dolphins. Sharks are those people around us that are mean in their words or actions. Jellyfish stand around and watch someone else get picked on, and they do nothing about it. The dolphin takes care of those around him or her. God asks us to love Him with all our heart, soul, and mind and to love our neighbor as ourselves. God wants us to be like the dolphin. Sure, we have our bumps and bruises, but it's a great environment to learn and grow in.

I hope and pray that you and your family experience all that LCA has to offer. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to locking arms with you in preparing your child for the road of life.

Most sincerely,

Mrs. Amy McCaulley
Lower School Principal
