Community Connect Program
"The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members." - Coretta Scott King
Introducing our Community Connect Program:
Are you new to our community, or now find yourself with more time and want to grow your connections with other families in LCTA? Could you use a resource who has experience at the school or in the community to help answer your questions, bounce ideas about and help you navigate this remote learning and new normal we are all struggling to embrace. This program is designed to connect LCTA community members to one another to provide support and foster relationships. This program is an opportunity to encourage one another as we balance work, distance-learning, childcare, and self-care while keeping worries — both our children’s and our own — under control. This is a program guided by the PTA under the direction of Dr. Zissios and is an opportunity to form new friendships and strengthen the bonds in our community.

Art with Ms. St. Louis
I have indicated which grade levels I will be gearing my lessons for, but that does not mean a student cannot attend a session higher or lower than their grade. Please be respectful and responsible and remember that I cannot admit a student into a Zoom meeting without proper identification ie "Awesome Me" is not someone I can admit. And as always these meetings are voluntary and not required. I love seeing everyone and I miss you all very much.
If there are any questions please feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Take care and keep on creating!
