Welcome letter from the Principal
I hope you had a wonderful summer. Welcome back to our highly recognized school in the number one school district in the state of Florida! We have sent another accomplished eighth grade class of students to their respective high schools and look forward to welcoming all of our Kindergarten students to the LPA family. While all results are not yet in, St. Johns County Students scored 1st in 7 out of 7 assessment categories this spring and we expect future results to be much the same.

“New” Military Supply Collection
For the fifth year in a row, LPA will continue our military supply collection and letter writing campaign for soldiers deployed overseas. Our project was so successful in past years that we have decided to keep our momentum moving into the 2015-2016 school year. Below, please see the list of “Military Supply Collection dates” for the 2015-2016 school year. Your child’s grade level will be participating only in the given months. The Jacksonville USO has graciously partnered with us to ship all of our supplies and letters overseas to our deserving soldiers.

In the month of October, fourth and fifth grade students will be collecting supplies and writing letters. Please use the carepackage supply list below and send in your donated supplies by Thursday, October 29th. Your child will be writing their letters in class during a writing lesson.
