Friday, September 16, LCA celebrated our Lower School Grandparents by hosting 275+ for Grandparents Day. The morning kicked off with students and grandparents gathered in the gym for the opening ceremony. Upper School Principal, Mark Davis, shared about the Biblical perspective of one of the values that is being taught in Lower School, love. The students ended this portion of the morning with a reader’s theater of I Corinthians 13 1-8a.
Once dismissed, students and grandparents were free to participate in the Olympic themed athletic and academic events that were available outside. Events such as the balance beam and synchronized stacking allowed the students to show their grandparents some of the principals they are learning in the STEM education program. Athletic themed events such as the dodgeball toss and the javelin throw allowed for friendly competition between student and grandparent. Photo stations were available as a means to capture a snapshot to remember the day.
It was a great day at LCA!
