April 2021

Greetings Greyhound Nation,

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and restful Spring Break. Now that we are into the 3rd week of the fourth nine weeks, our focus and attention will be on the upcoming state FSA Assessments, End-of-Course, Advanced Placement and IB exams. Starting on Tuesday, April 6th through Tuesday, April 14th, we will be administering the
writing component of the ELA assessment to students in grades 6 through 10. Make-ups will take place April 15th, 16th and 20th. Please pay close attention to the calendar included in this edition of our newsletter for important FSA testing information. Parents and guardians, please ensure your students are well rested before their scheduled exams, eat well and come to school on time.

Aside from testing, there are other exciting things happening at LPA. Our Drama Department was extremely busy this past month. If you did not come out to see their production of “The Addams Family,” you missed an outstanding performance. The students worked very hard in putting together this production, which received rave reviews. Kudos to Ms. Forbus, Drama Teacher and the entire cast and crew for their outstanding performance.

“Bravo!!!” Orchestra, Chorus and Band concerts will take place toward the middle and later part of the month. Please come out and support our talented student performers.

As always, I want to thank all our stakeholders. We could not have made it this far into the school year without your unwavering support. It is greatly appreciated by all and we look forward to our continued partnership through these uncertain times.

“One School; One Team; One Theme”
