Animal Crusaders Towel and Blanket Drive
After the holidays, Animal Crusaders is doing a towel and blanket drive to benefit the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria and King Street Cats. During the winter the animals might be cold so we want to keep them warm and dry to help them toward their future homes.
Please check your closets, and bring any towels or blankets you no longer need to school and put them in bins in the lobby by January 17th! We thank you for helping homeless animals and giving them a new start in the new year!

Outdoor Learning Center
Share in the dream of a new purpose-built Outdoor Learning Center for LCTA! With our facility bursting at the seams and no room to add on, it's time to make better use of our outdoor space. Never professionally designed or built with the current student enrollment in mind, its layout, surfaces, and equipment are dysfunctional, inadequate, unsafe and seasonally limited. We are looking to extend our learning to the outdoors with a safe, purpose-built, state-of-the-art outdoor learning center and grounds. Join the collaboration of parents, grandparents, staff, faculty, neighbors, and concerned citizens working with ACPS to see LCTA’s outdoor learning environment become a reality. It is time to advocate for our school and our students.
Hello from ACPS Safe Routes to School! As your Safe Routes to School Coordinator, my job is to encourage students to walk and bike to school and to educate them on how to do so safely. This fall, your student(s) was asked to report how she or he travels to and from school. The district-wide results showed that 22% of our students walk to school and 1% bike to school. Now that we know how your students are arriving and dismissing, it is helpful for us to understand why.
Please take 3-minutes to complete the attached survey (available online in English or Spanish) regarding student travel. What factors affect whether you allow your student(s) to walk or bike to school? Are there any changes to safety-related conditions along the route that could increase the likelihood that your child walks or bikes to school? Your feedback will inform improvements to infrastructure, traffic, and overall safety near your student’s school. Thank you for your time and attention in completing this survey! http://www.saferoutesdata.org/surveyformparent.cfm?key=1426703
