2017 Literacy Fair/Open House

March 9 marked the 3rd Annual LCS Literacy Fair/Open House. Showcasing the hard work of students and immense creative talent of the staff, this family fun event included literacy building activities and games, themed classrooms, costumed guests, snacks, take-away items, free books, and door prizes. Our guests wandered through a literary wonderland of whimsical books like “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie…” to classics such as “Island of the Blue Dolphins” to “Left Behind,” a Christian book, to biographies of Samuel Morris and Billy Sunday, to cultural novels like “Esperanza Rising” and the wonderful world of Dr. Seuss. We would like to offer our heartfelt appreciation to our supporters who donated door prizes and give-aways: Billy Reese with State Farm, Mindy Townsend of A & A Air Services, Liz Hodges of Best Things, Mary Ellen Hocker of Hocker’s Grocery, Christina Carey with Chrissy’s Cleaning Service, and April Cleveland with the Delaware Department of Health

Pre-School Mathemagicians!

LCS Pre-schoolers learn more than just ABC’s with their math rotation groups.  In addition to recognizing and counting numbers, students develop problem solving skills with geometric shapes and tangram puzzles.

100's Day!

The greatly anticipated day was celebrated in style by the Kindergarten and First Grade classes. The entire day was devoted to “100” from the clothes they wore, food they ate, Bible lessons learned, math problems solved, words they read, and crafts they made.  Thanks to Ms. T, Ms. Terry, and Ms. Ginger for organizing this wonderful annual event!
