Meet our Eagle Warrior Champion... Mr. Najlis!

When you meet Mr. Najlis, the first thing he will tell you is to never trust an atom.... they make up everything. ( A little Physics humor)Mr. Najlis is LCPA's educational rockstar who has created a compassionate learning environment for his students. He is witty, humorous and confident when teaching students physics. He appears to be a very serious teacher but once you know him a bit more, you will see he is a very genuine and insightful human being. Mr. Najlis loves his family. He is a very caring, creative teacher who is passionate about science and cares deeply about students learning. Mr. Najlis teaches Physics, Biology and has taught students how to strategically take the SAT College Entrance exam. He also serves as our GamersUniDos club advisor who last year sponsored our Dia de Los Juegos event for our school community. Thank you Mr. Najlis for teaching our students that there is much more to gravity than a fear of falling.

    LCPA Student Behavior Expectations for Distance Learning

    LCPA believes in supporting the safe and responsible use of all online and digital technologies for teaching and learning. During this period of distance learning, all students are responsible for continuing to practice positive digital citizenship by protecting and respecting their peers and teachers. We all must understand, practice, and model positive and productive behaviors when we are online. Because a remote learning environment is still a classroom, school behavior norms and rules are to be followed just as expected in the regular educational setting/classroom.
