Warner Campus News

Dear LFPA Warner families,

We look forward to another successful year with all of our stakeholders’ support and assistance as we work together to provide a positive and productive educational experience for the children throughout the year.

As the school year progresses, please encourage your students to engage in reading activities whenever possible. Even the reading of comic books and special interest magazines will help your student to refine his/her skills in this pivotal area. Regular reading at all grade levels will stimulate higher-level thinking skills and provide a positive foundation for the new school year.

The front office is open throughout the week from 8:00 to 4:00 in order to serve our families. If you have questions and need to speak with front office staff, please call or stop by any time Monday to Friday.

Our staff worked hard throughout the summer planning for the new school year and starting some new programs at the Warner campus. We welcome you back to LFPA Warner and look forward to an exciting year.

Chris Paulson, Principal

The LFPA Warner Performing Arts Department is a busy place preparing little girls dance group 5-2013students for exciting performances throughout the year.

The Leading Tones Show Choir were honored to Perform at the National Anthem in front of an audience of 12,000 at the JDRF One Walk at Sloan Park on April 29.

We are very proud of one of our 5th grade students who attended the “Lion King on Broadway” audition in LA and made the final cut for the New York production. 

Our students  showcase their talents in two talent shows in the Fall and the Spring as well as musical theatre productions.  The Winter and Spring productions are each presented over six eveninkids in bluegs in order to involve all students in stellar shows.  All of the school’s performances are sell-outs and an excellent show of our students’ talent.

We are excited about our students and the parents, staff and teachers who proA-boy-and-his-guitar-620vide the support and assistance to make our performances a great success.

Winning Story: “Be Proactive”

One day in the friendly forest, Sammy the squirrel was working on a new invention. He needed one other tool. When he was walking to the store, he saw Tag-Along Alley by herself crying. So Sammy the squirrel walked up and asked her why she was crying.

Tag-Along Alley said, “Because Judging Jimmy said I was too small.”

“That Judging Jimmy!” said Sammy the squirrel. “Well, why don’t we go and talk to him?”

“Okay”, said Alley, “Let’s go!”.

So when they got to Jimmy’s house, they asked him why he would say something like that. He said he didn’t intend to be mean and he was really sorry. So after that, they all went out for pizza. And Sammy learned to be proactive when his friends need help (even with Judging Jimmy, the cat!).

Honorable Mention Story: “Synergize”

Once upon a time, there was a scarecrow named Pi who always wanted to be a real boy. Although he had two friends (Mike and Tom), he just didn’t feel alive. On Monday, Pi was feeling extremely sad and when Mike and Tom came over he felt even worse. He was not sad because he was stuck on his stick or that no crows were coming. He was sad because he could not walk, run, or even play. So Mike and Tom thought for a while and came up with a perfect plan! Tomorrow, for Pi’s birthday, they would work together to get Pi off his stick so he could have some fun.

The next day, bright and early, Tom went over to Mike’s house. Then they both hiked up the mountain to see Pi. While he was sleeping, Tom and Mike tugged, pulled, twisted, turned, spun, and even kicked the pole to try to get the nail that held Pi up to come out. Finally, with a pop, the nail came flying out and Pi came falling down.

That day and later on they had the best days ever. Also, they learned some things like synergizing which is working as a team (an awesome team!). They learned that you can do anything if you try, and that it’s not really trying if you give up. Well, that is the end of my story.
