April 2018

Greetings Greyhound Nation,

It is my hope that everyone had a wonderful and restful Spring Break and are focused on the upcoming state FSA Assessments, End-of-Course, Advanced Placement and IB exams. Please pay close attention to the calendar included in this edition of our newsletter for important testing information. Parents and guardians, please ensure your students are well rested before their scheduled exams, eat well and come to school on time. As a reminder, we are offering free breakfast to all students between now and the end of the school year. The entire administrative team and staffulty are extremely confident our students are well-prepared for these assessments, will  perform amazingly well and finish the year strong.

Aside from testing, there are many other exciting things happening at LPA. Our performing arts department was extremely busy this past month. The high school band, high and middle school chorus, and orchestra participated in their respective district music performance assessments and music festivals, while the drama department’s Thespian Troupe participated in the State Thespian Festival in Tampa. All groups did an outstanding job during their performances, garnering superior and excellent ratings respectively. Our seniors will be off to Grad Bash on Friday, April 13th, which will be the kick off to their senior week starting on Monday, April 16th. Activities include bowling at Super Play, a picnic at J.C. Park, a day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and breakfast and a movie. Our Spring  Orchestra, Chorus and Band concerts will take place toward the middle and later part of the month and the county high school art show will open on April 20th. Please come out and support our talented student performers and artists. Do not forget to review the monthly calendar for all the other great things taking place at LPA.

Lastly, As the weather gets warmer, students are more apt to be out of dress code. I am asking that parents pleaseensure students come to school in proper dress code. This serves a dual purpose; it sets us apart from everyone else and is another way we can ensure the safety and security of everyone on campus.

As always, a huge “THANK YOU” to 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!

“One School; One Team; One Theme”
