LFDCS Board Honors Grade 7 student Jenilca Sanchez PDF Print E-mail

LFD/LFDCS has a tradition of using student art as the cover to our annual Holiday Card.  Pieces of student art which reflect the holiday season are submitted by the Art Teacher and anonymously chosen by the the Leadership Team. The piece selected is then scanned on the cover of our Holiday Card which is mailed to donors of the organization along with a donor envelope. Thanks to those who donated, we raised over $3,000 for the scholarship fund.

This year's Holiday Card art contest winner, Grade 7 student, Jenilca Sanchez, was honored on Wednesday, January 8, 2019 at the LFDCS Board of Trustees meeting and presented with a framed picture of herself and the Holiday Card by board trustee, Anne Hemmer. A framed picture of the card and the student selected is displayed in the Foley Library along with past year's winners.

Jenilca's parents and brother and sister were also in attendance at the board meeting.

Academic Program


Our program includes a dual-language model with students learning in both Spanish and English. The goal is to enable students to attain advanced levels of functional proficiency in two languages and to promote understanding of and appreciation for the cultures represented by the languages studied. The primary objective is to teach students language and literacy skills that will allow them to function effectively in both their personal and professional lives. We feel the development of literacy will foster a love of learning to read, and then the competency of reading to learn.

Leadership


We believe there is a strong link between school success and effective and consistent leadership. As a result, our Board of Trustees, is composed of parents, alumni and community leaders and provides valuable oversight and focuses on creating and upholding policies that support our students and their families. Our administrative structure consists of a Principal and three Heads of School who manage daily operations and discipline. Leadership from the ranks of the teaching staff is also highly evident, as teachers improve curriculum and serve as mentors to novice educators.

Community Partnerships


Our goal is to work with many individuals and organizations in order to provide the resources necessary to enhance and enrich the lives of our students, both during the day and in our extended day and extended year programs. The quality and breadth of our community partnership program is unique. We work with an extensive array of local private schools, parent and community volunteers and organizations providing on-site programs.

Parent Partners


We believe that when parents are actively involved in their children’s education, students have a better chance of succeeding academically. At LFDCS parents are required to be active participants in the education of their children. Parents serve on our Board of Trustees, participate in training programs designed to help them work with their children at home, volunteer in the classroom and on field trips and assist with fundraising initiatives. All parents sign a contract that places high expectations on their participation both at school and at home.
