Greetings Greyhound Nation,

During the past month, our students have been very busy participating in a variety of learning experiences and community events, such as Science Fair, History Fair and Project Citizen. We are proud of all our students and cannot wait to hear how they will fare at the next level. As in past years, LPA supported and participated in this year’s Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative activities, which culminated with the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade. Many of our students and staff participated in this time-honored event, displaying our true “Greyhound Pride.” Finally, IB seniors completed their long-anticipated English orals. Way to go Greyhounds!


Congratulations to senior, Haniya Shareef for being named as one of 300 young scientists of the 77th annual Regeneron Science Talent Search, and for being selected as one of the top 40 finalists. This is a great honor and we are all very proud of her and this accomplishment. I would also like to congratulate Ms. Lisa Hevner, Science teacher. She was also recognized by the Regeneron Science Talent Search as a “Teacher of Merit” for mentoring and guidance Haniya during this process.


Recently, we reminded students, as well as parents about our electronic device/cell phone policy and our renewed emphasis in the enforcement of this policy due to increased violations. Our intent is to ensure that we continue to provide a safe learning environment for all students and staff, while ensuring consistency in the enforcement of the policy across the campus. I would like to ask that you assist us in our efforts by reminding your child of the expectation here at LPA.


As we move closer toward the busiest part of the school year, I would like to remind everyone how important it is to ensure students attend school daily, arrive on time, remain focused and practice our 4 P’s (Be Prompt; Be Polite; Be Prepared; Be Productive. Our commitment to you and our students is to deliver the most effective instruction in a safe and caring environment and ensure that all students achieve success. Thank you for all the support and for being a part of the Greyhound Team!
