Monday, April 16th-Saturday, April 21st is LRCA Week at the Cantrell Road Chick-fil-A!!

Every time you place an order, be sure and mention that you are “with LRCA” to earn money for our school. It’s a winning combination! Dine in to enjoy Warrior decorations, or grab a quick meal to go. Either way, you enjoy delicious food, and our school receives money back. Eat more chicken!!

Parents today face many challenges… Social Media certainly ranks as one of the top concerns! Parent Teacher Fellowship is pleased to partner with our administration to help Warrior parents better navigate this important topic. Join us Thursday, April 19 in Warrior Hall as we hear from Christina Jontra, a social media expert and educator from Tyler, Texas. Christina’s role as Director of Digital Learning at Grace Community School enables her to share a unique perspective regrading social media and students. Come and be encouraged as a parent as you gain information and tools to guide your child in this area!

Thursday, April 19
