December 2018

Greetings Greyhound Nation,

It is my hope that everyone had an enjoyable “Thanksgiving Break” with family and friends, and I am glad to see that everyone returned safely and ready to close out the first semester with much enthusiasm. December brings with it much joy and cheer as we prepare for the holiday season. This month is filled with many exciting events and activities, starting with High School “Spirit Week” and our Homecoming dance on Saturday, December 8th. Our Performing Arts Department will also be showcasing their musical talents during their annual winter concerts. If you missed our Fall performances, then these are performances you definitely do not want to miss and the perfect opportunity to take in the spirit of the season. Please be sure to review the calendar for dates and times. Our chorus students participated in Disney’s “Candlelight Processional” at Epcot. This was their 14th consecutive year having been invited to participate in this renowned event. Our Drama students participated in the District Thespian Festival at Vero Beach High School. Our Troupe performed exceptionally well and represented LPA in a true Greyhound fashion. Semester exams will take place starting on December 13th and going through December 20th, so please plan accordingly.

This past month, the 6th, 7th and 8th grade classes participated in their respective “C2G” assemblies as part of our “Commitment to Graduate” initiative. All students committed to working hard, being successful in all they do and signed their respective class silhouette affirming their commitment.

We also have exciting “Staffulty” news! Four Greyhounds have been selected by their peers to represent LPA in the 2019 SLPS Employee Recognition Program and be honored at the annual “Night of the Stars” event on February 9th. They are:

On behalf of the administrative team and the entire “Staffulty,” we want to wish our parents, students, stakeholders and community partners a safe and joyous holiday season.

“Happy Holidays,” “Merry Christmas,” “Feliz Navidad,” “Happy Hanukah,” “Happy Kwanza,” “Joyeuz Noel” and “Milad Majid” from Lincoln Park Academy!
