February 2020

Greetings Greyhound Nation,

Our students have been very busy preparing for a variety of learning experiences and other events, such as Science Fair and 4-County Honor Band Performances. 32 high school and 26 middle school students participated in the regional Science Fair at Indian River State College. Results will be announced at the Science Fair Awards Ceremony to be held at the district office on Wednesday, February 5, from 6:00-8:00 PM. We are extremely proud of all our students, especially those who will be advancing to the next level of competition and we are confident they will perform very well. LPA also participated in the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade. I am proud to report LPA garnered 1st place in the high school division for our float. A huge “THANK YOU” to Mr. McGraw and his students, as well as Mr. Plasencia and the Key Club for their hard work in putting this year’s float together. A special thank you to Mr. Athill, our plant manager for his assistance and The Plumbery and Company of Fort Pierce for their donation. I would also like to thank our boys’ and girls’ basketball teams, fife and drum, steel drum ensemble, Key Club members and this year’s Homecoming King and Queen for participating and stunning the community with our “Greyhound Pride!”

February is designated as “African American History Month.” Teachers will be engaging our students in lessons and activities related to the many contributions African Americans have made to our great nation. Many other events are also taking place this month, so please be sure to pay close attention to this month’s calendar.

Lastly, I want to remind everyone how important it is to ensure students continue to attend school daily, arrive on time, remain focused and continue to be prompt to class. 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. Remember, attendance matters!

Thank you for all the support and for being a part of the Greyhound Team!
