Making Memories for a Lifetime

Ask an LGS alum about their fondest school memories and they won’t say math or handwriting.

Alumni most often talk about the school dances, field day, the trip to Siekman’s farm, and other events.

This past Friday LGS parents and other supporters hosted a school carnival with a variety of games and prizes – even a fortune teller!

Great times, with great friends.

THANK YOU to the LGS Parent Group for organizing the Spring Carnival as well as other events throughout the school year – you are creating memories that will last a lifetime!
