2015-16 Theme: Walk Worthy

“I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called.”

Ephesians 4:1

     Each student and staff member at LCA has been challenged to walk worthy as we begin this school year. The theme for this school year comes from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesian church where he called for a greater unity in love (v. 3). His direction to this early church is profitable for all of us to learn from.

In order to walk worthy, we must first be known for our lowliness. One commentator defined this term as a “deep sense of one’s littleness.” We must remember that none of us are righteous and that none of us will naturally do good, as Romans 3:10-12 teaches. Instead, we must properly understand our role as one who can be used to build up others. Instead of guarding our turf, we must be quick to serve others. Philippians 2:3 exhorts us all to “in lowliness of mind . . . esteem other better than themselves.” As we keep in mind that all we have is the Lord and all that we accomplish is because of Him and His grace, we will be better known as lowly servants and be worthy of the calling of the Lord on our lives.

Second, to be worthy of this calling, we must be known for our meekness. Meekness is certainly not weakness. Many are familiar with the common definition of meekness as strength under control. To be meek, we must, in fact, be strong, but we must also be under the Spirit’s control. When others attack us for our faith in Christ, we should respond as instructed in 2 Timothy 2:25, “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves.” Moses and Jesus Christ were known for their meek approach to those around them, and we should be as well.

These biblical principles serve as measures of our spiritual maturity and excellent goals for each of our students to set for themselves in the school year to come. We will examine more of Ephesians 4 in the next newsletter.

The Knightline

This Knightline newsletter will be published approximately every other Friday throughout the school year. It contains vital information about our school program. We ask that each family make a habit of reading the newsletter promptly.

Other than the first edition, future newsletters will be sent by email and posted online at www.lcaknightline.org. We encourage you to bookmark this mobile-friendly website to help you keep with all of the happenings around our school.

If you would like to receive a printed copy sent home with your child, please contact Mrs. Kettlewood in our school office. We appreciate your help.

School Office Hours

Throughout the school year, our school office is open from 7:45 AM until 3:45 PM. We appreciate your understanding at the busy times of arrival and dismissal where lines sometimes form at the office window.

If you need to call into the office, please avoid placing the call first thing in the morning or around lunch time (11:20-12:15). These times are very busy and we may have trouble getting to your call.

Of course, please feel free to let us know if we can help you in any way throughout the year.

Arrival Time

Please remember that school begins promptly at 8:20 each morning. All students (including K3 and K4) must arrive by this time to avoid being counted as tardy. Arriving on time will also help our teachers avoid unnecessary distractions from teaching the other students. According to school policy, each three tardies are counted as an absence. Please contact our school office with any questions about these policies.

Please Label Uniforms

Because each student here wears a uniform to school, please be sure to label your child’s clothing with his name or at least his initials. We want to be sure that lost items get returned to the proper owner.

This is especially important with the blue uniform sweaters.

Please help us by also labeling lunch boxes and other materials which can easily become separated from their owners.

School Banking

Mrs. Deb Roarke volunteers to help organize and run a school banking program in conjunction with CapCom credit union. This program will begin this coming Tuesday, September 22. Students who have not yet signed up may do so by obtaining a form from Mrs. Roarke. If you have any questions, please contact our school office. We do encourage each of you to teach the value of saving money, and LCA’s school banking program can be an important part of this effort.

Parking Lot Improvements

We appreciate the help and support of our families early in the school year in our parking lot. We appreciate the effort to follow our established traffic pattern even with the work being done to install lighting stands in our parking lot. We expect that the project will be complete next week. In the meantime, please carefully observe the cones marking off the drops in the pavement. We are confident that the nice, bright lights will be worth the effort here at the start of the year.
