LCA Represented at fcc cheer nationals
FCC, or the Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders, is the largest Christian ministry in the world solely focused on sharing Christ to cheerleaders. Several LCA students are part of club cheerleading teams which compete with FCC. Over the 2019 Christmas break, 2nd graders Faithann Adams and Rebecca Grant won the FCC National Championship in their division with the Mighty Zion warriors. 3rd grader Lexi Hall also won the championship in her division with the Hebron Steel Hornets. LCA is proud to have these students represented the school through cheerleading excellence.

LCA Introduces Chess Club
LCA now has a chess club! All students are welcome to join at any time. Just show up to any of the practices because it is based on a point system. The more practices you attend, and the more games you win, the more points receive. The points are then used to match you up with opponents who are your skill level. It is also possible that there will be a prize to the person with the most points, and of course bragging rights. LCA Campus Pastor, Mr. Stice, was inspired by a couple of his 9th grade students to have this chess club. The chess board and pieces will be provided in his room. Mr. Stice emphasizes that you do not have to be an expert at chess to join, They can teach you in a matter of minutes. Mr. Stice would be delighted to have you!

Winter Sports Spirit Week and Pep Rally
This year's spirit week was a blast! Tuesday was Superhero Day, a day the elementary especially enjoyed. Wednesday was made much better than Wednesdays usually are with Pajama Day. Everyone was decked out in sweatpants and slippers, and we even saw a few onesies! Thursday, Decades Day, saw many creative and colorful outfits. For Friday, each grade was assigned a color to compete in Color Wars. At the pep rally, a grade from both elementary and high school was chosen based on class participation in the Color Wars. 1st grade, dressed in orange, and 10th grade, dressed in black, won the day. It's been a another great spirit week for LCA!

At LCA's winter pep rally, the middle school. JV, and Varsity basketball teams and swim teams were presented to the school, as well as the cast of the Drama Department's Fall Production, Little Women. After the sports presentation, there was a students vs. faculty free throw competition. Shooting for the students were junior, Reese Montgomery, and seniors, Madison Hughes, Thomas Avery, and Landon Ogle. Despite worthy efforts, the faculty team came up short 52-25. The pep rally was a great way to get students excited for the basketball game!
