Eternal Creator God

“God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, breath, and all things.”

Acts 17:24-25

     When we look around us, it is only logical to assume that everything we see needed a beginning.  Someone had to build and wind the watch.  Someone had to write the works of Shakespeare.  Someone had to design and construct the great pyramids.

So it is logical to see the work of God in His creation of the world all round us.  Everything that has ever existed must have had some type of God as its starting point.

Some will then ask, “Who made God?”  Poets and philosophers have posited that man ourselves created God in our own imaginations.  An atheist will still try to assert that there is no God, in spite of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.  Polytheists will speculate that there are many gods, saying that the Christian God is only one of many.

The Bible gives us a clear answer that demands our acceptance: no one made this unique God.  God is the eternally existing cause of everything else.

Only an infinite, eternal God could create all we see around us today.  Only this God could create time itself.

What an amazing thought that this awesome creator God hears and answers our prayers!  Only this God loves enough to give all life, breath, and even all things.  We worship and praise this God today!

School Holidays Coming

LCA will be closed Friday, October 11 for an in-service workday and professional development day for our staff.

Our school will also be closed the following Monday, October 14, in recognition of Columbus Day.  School will resume on a regular schedule on Tuesday, October 15.

Absence Notes

All students who miss school for any reason must return with a written note from their parents explaining the absence or tardy.  Our attendance policies indicate that this note must be sent to our school office.  While we appreciate an email or text to the teacher, that is insufficient as an excuse note.  Please help us maintain our attendance policies with a prompt note when your child is back in school.

Credit Cards and PayPal

We all know how convenient it can be to pay our bills on a credit or debit card.  While LCA will accept credit cards, debit cards, and PayPal payments, there is a cost to that convenience.  Our School Board has directed that we pass along the charges PayPal gives us through a 2.75% convenience charge.  We accept cash and check with no additional charge in our school office or by mail.

Volleyball Season Begins

Our girls’ volleyball team started the season with a victory against Grapeville Christian last week.  They will be hosting their first game of the year against Wilton Baptist this afternoon.  The game will begin at 4:00 in our gym, and all of our families are welcome and encouraged to attend.  We do not charge a gate or entrance fee to any of our families, so there is no cost to come out and support our Lady Knights under the leadership of Coach Sam Mansfield.

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.

School Banking

Mrs. Deb Roarke volunteers to help organize and run a school banking program in conjunction with CapCom credit union.  This program began this week and will be run most Wednesday mornings throughout the school year.  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.

Fall Picture Day

On Wednesday, October 9, all students will have their picture taken by our photography partner Lifetouch.  You can expect to receive order forms in the next few days.  Please review those forms, complete them fully, and enclose payment including sales tax if you would like to order a copy of these pictures.  You may also pay online, and you can see the order form for more information.

Whether or not you choose to order pictures, each child must wear their regular school uniform for school pictures.  These pictures will be used for our yearbook and for student IDs.  This is a good time to be sure your child has a clean and unwrinkled uniform and their hair looks their best.

Please be sure your child has the completed picture form and money on picture day.  Please contact Mrs. Kettlewood if you have any questions about our school picture program.

PSAT

As a part of our college preparatory and guidance programs here, each sophomore and junior will take the PSAT/NMSQT on Wednesday, October 10.  The cost for this test is only $15, and we are confident this test will help students prepare for the SAT and ACT, as well as other standardized tests.  Tenth and eleventh grade students will be receiving more information on this test next week.  Parents should contact Mr. Fry with any questions prior to test day.

Parking Lot

We appreciate the help of each family as we have all adjusted to the new school year.  As you drive, always remember the 5 MPH speed limit.  It is very slow on purpose.

Please be sure that each person dropping or picking up your children follows the correct parking lot pattern.  The center aisle is one-way, leaving our parking lot.  Also, please be sure only to pull along the ropes in front of the building if you are staying in your vehicle and dropping off older children.

Of course, please contact our office if you have any questions about our parking lot policies.
