From the Chief School Administrator

Greetings! We finally made it to March! With Spring around the corner, there is much to be had at LAC, during the day and night! The Board of Education will be presenting the budget in the upcoming weeks, our local Youth League will still be shooting hoops and winning games, and our PTO will be hosting our first annual Tricky Tray with the LAC Ruritan on March 1! Lots of exciting times to be had; we are growing, we are learning, we are moving onward! -Jay Eitner, CSA

Breakfast available to all LAC students starting March 3

From March 3, 2014 until May 30, 2014, LAC will pilot a School Breakfast Program available to the entire school so that all students have access to a nutritious breakfast every school day.

Unfortunately, many children come to school without eating a nutritious breakfast every morning. This is particularly prevalent in teenagers and includes children from all economic situations. Regardless of background, it’s imperative children’s nutritional needs be satisfied.

Eating breakfast at school supports health and learning for all children. Studies conclude that students who eat school breakfast increase their math and reading scores as well as improve their speed and memory in cognitive tests. In addition, children who have satisfied their nutritional needs are better behaved at school, have longer attention spans and are more interested in the educational program.

LAC plans to launch a Breakfast Program trial run starting Monday, March 3, 2014 and continue through Friday, May 30, 2014. The program will be available to all students between 7:55 AM - 8:15 AM in the Cafeteria. Students will have the choice of a variety of items, which may include granola bars, cereal with milk, yogurt, fresh fruit, fruit pockets (f/k/a ‘pop tarts’), Cinnamon-stuffed or fruit-stuffed rollups, and other items. Items will be priced no more than $1.25. Students eligible for the Free & Reduced Lunch Program will also be eligible for the Breakfast Program at its respective rates; free or the reduced rate of 30 cents.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact the school at or call Mr. Eitner at 856.935.2707 x210.

In 5th grade...

The fifth grade has been extremely busy learning new skills, but we've had some fun along the way. We recently drew and wrote captions for comic strips to show how to deal with a dragon after reading the story, "The Paper Dragon". After our NED show assembly, we used yoyos to learn about pendulums and enjoyed our experiments using them. This week, we have been experimenting with waves in science and had a lot of fun testing sound waves with tuning forks. We were amazed at the sounds we could hear that the adults in our room could not.

There's a whole lot going on in Spanish classes at LAC.


PK- 1st graders are learning the body parts, colors, shapes, numbers, days of the week, and vowels. We are dancing and singing to Spanish music. They can practice at home by going to the virtual classroom!

2nd - 3rd graders are reading Spanish books for understanding. They are using their pronunciation skills to read aloud and they will be making their own books this marking period.

4th graders are researching animals from the Hispanic Countries they researched. They will be making books for each animal.

5th -8th graders are working on puppet shows for the third marking period.

You can also hear the songs from last marking period by clicking on the TWITTER TILE on the Virtual Classroom. ¡DISFRUTEN!
