On 3-14, we celebrated “Pie Day” in our math class. Our upper school math teacher is the best. Her name is Miss Gibbs. She let us bring in all sorts of pies and even made pancakes for those of us that don’t eat pie. Mrs. Sampson also celebrated this day with her middle school math classes. They had pies like us but some parents supplied other round foods like doughnuts and cookies. We all had a sugar rush that day!
LA Baseball Coach Luke Tollison is returning for his third year and is looking to have a great season along with returning assistant coach Robert Roper and two new assistant coaches, Chris Hornberger and Roy McCall. Sadly, the Friday February 22nd home opening day game was rained out. We will play in Winnsboro this Friday night against the Eagles of Richard Winn. We hope all our fans will make this road trip and cheer us on!

This will be a Blackout Night and our annual chili cook off. Finally we have our rival coming to town on February 1st. The theme will be White Out Night and also senior night. We will recognize our senior basketball players. So come on out and cheer on your Crusaders and take part in one of our theme nights!
