  • Kindness Family Kickoff!

    Posted by Kevin Deacon on 10/10/2018

    Kindness was in the air at LAS this week! The students and staff gathered on the backfield on Wednesday morning for our Kindness Family Kickoff. Each child at LAS is part of a mixed-grade level family that meets several times throughout the year. In their families, children participate in cooperative character-building activities. This meeting included a 'getting to know you' game, a name game, the creation of a secret handshake for each family, and a height-order challenge. It was a great morning of teamwork and camaraderie by all!
