Members of the Lake Park Audubon National Honor Society will be collecting “Treats for Troops” once again this year; however, the change in how they approached their goal last year will remain the same. Historically, students have gone door-to-door, asking for “Treats for Troops,” and have had a resounding positive response. That response resulted in over 80 pounds, of mostly candy, being sent to active troop members in the past several years. While the “treats” are greatly appreciated, the commanding officers may not have seen it as a part of a healthy diet and regime for their troops. Thus, the request for healthier “treats” will be implemented once again this year. Some of the recommended treats that will be accepted include: “packaged coffee, jerky, pretzels, snack crackers, trail mix, and hunting/fishing/sports magazines.” Liquids cannot be shipped abroad to the troops and will not be accepted.
The LPA NHS will accept donations of the healthier options at the LPA High School or will collect them upon request up through Monday, November 5th. The Lake Park Legion has once again agreed to help with the shipment of the items. Aaron Christensen, former LPA student (2007) is a current chaplain in the military and is connected to a Minnesota unit in Kuwait that would receive the treats. If you have items to donate or an enlisted service member from the LPA area that you would like to recognize, please contact the LPA NHS adviser, Cheryl Hogie at email@example.com or school phone 218-325-0754.

NDSU Choir Festival
October 7 and 8, two talented choir members participated in the NDSU Choir Festival. Jon Stone and Rachel Ullmer were selected through through an audition process. Each potential choir member performed their contest solo on an audio recording. Nearly one hundred top choral students auditioned for this prestigious chamber choir. Rachel Ullmer was selected as a soprano and Jon Stone was selected as a bass to the 32 member choir. Jon received further acclamations by being selected for a bass solo in a Spanish selection entitled I Adore You ( Te Quiero) by Favero.
Congratulation Rachel and Jon!
Rise and Shine Workouts

We attended the ceremony again this year at MSUM.
41 LPA students watched 103 individuals from 34 different countries become citizens.
In today's society it is so vital that students see these people become Americans. They are all very proud to become part of our country and that students get an up close and personal view of this is amazing!
The 8th graders at LPA are starting off the year with some STEAM! They are already in the middle of their second collaborative problem-based learning project. Students in Mr. Wixo and Mrs. Watland's classes teamed up to design and build a tower out of tape and spaghetti noodles. The goal was to build the highest tower that could successfully hold a marshmallow on the top. Students needed to use critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as creativity, innovation, and collaboration. The 8th graders are currently in the middle of another design challenge, building catapults. This project helps students to better understand the engineering design and scientific inquiry processes while stressing the importance of teamwork! The catapults will have to hold up to five different challenges.
This year we are looking at implementing additional features to engage parents/guardians with their children's learning enivronment.
We also would like to send important information, forms, and updates to you so you are aware of what is happening in our schools. In order for us to provide these new services we need accurate and up-to-date contact information*.
If you are a parent or guardian please take the time to fill out this form on the right.
*Please use a personal email address if possible. If you do not have a personal email address please consider creating one either through the many free services or through your internet provider. A business email address may not be appropriate in some cases.
Here at LPA, we believe in educating and empowering our students to thrive. Be it in academics, athletics, art, or any other skills, we truly believe that we will grow every day, in every way, at LPA.
