Celebrating cherished traditions
A rich tapestry of longstanding and modern traditions nurtures the strong, close-knit community of LCDS students, faculty and alumni. From distinctive ceremonies on campus to special community events, our traditions bring spirit and warmth to our lives and connect the school’s past with its present and future.
The following are just a sampling of our many well-loved traditions developed to expand learning experiences and inspire our students.
Blue/Green Spirit Teams
When a student enters the Middle School, they become part of the Blue or Green Spirit Team. Students accumulate points for their assigned teams through stellar achievements in class, informal athletic contests and demonstrations of good character. The teams compete in annual games at the start of the year, and all fourth through eighth grades participate in the much-anticipated Blue/Green Track Meet.
Preschool, prekindergarten and kindergarten students are matched with buddies from the fourth and fifth grades. The students meet once a month to participate in activities together, such as reading in the library, cooking, bowling and attending the annual Halloween party. These mentoring experiences help younger learners feel at home in the LCDS community.
Meet the Author
Every month, an author, poet or illustrator visits the school library and speaks with students in various grades. The program promotes interest in literature, brings children and authors together and encourages students in their own writing.
