During our chapel on November 2nd, students were given time at the end of chapel to select the tag(s) for a specific student and take that home and work with their parents to provide them gifts. LCA Junior High and 6th Grade Academy is challenging families to select a student from Breathitt County who will might not be receiving Christmas gifts this year and provide each student with two gifts. Each gift will have a $25 limit. Both gifts will need to be wrapped and placed inside a garbage bag and dropped off at the tree by the 6th grade academy entrance or by the tree at the junior high entrance. Please attach the tag or a copy of the tag to the trash bag so we can make sure all gifts are accounted for. We are hoping that LCA can continue to show love towards our Breathitt County neighbors this Christmas season. If your student did not get a tag or would like to get more than one, they can grab one from one of the Christmas trees. 

ALL GIFTS NEED TO BE DROPPED OFF AT SCHOOL BY FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2ND.
