One of the things about LPS that sets us apart is our attention to providing our students with a well-rounded education. Beyond excelling in core content instruction, we offer a wide range of special activity courses for our students to help them grow and discover abilities in a variety of skills and artistic forms.
Art with Jamie GrovesArray@LPS_Art
Students in art learn various artistic concepts including color, line and shape, study classic, well-known artists and try their hands and imitating their work, and use mediums of various kinds. Best of all, students always learn a lot, express their creativity, and take home whatever they create!Teacher's Bio
Mrs. Jamie has been with the school since it's beginning, first as a teacher's aid in the art room, and now as the art teacher herself for the last four years. Jamie loves art in all its forms, and it is evident by the variety of creations that come out of her classroom!
Dance with Alena Watts

Ms. Alena has been teaching dance at LPS for three years now and we are so thrilled to have her on our team!
Theater with Sarah BucknamArray@LPS_Theater
Theater class is largely about building students' confidence! Students are introduced to the basic concepts of theatre arts and use various creative drama techniques to build confidence and trust, stimulate imagination, movement, and role-play. Through theatre games and activities, students will learn to lose inhibitions and will gain trust in themselves as well as others in their groups. Students learn to use drama and theatre vocabulary in class discussions and the activities will specifically address the promotion and reinforcement of students' literacy skills. A history of theatre timeline is also presented with a focus on the Greek Theatre to establish historical perspective and relevance. Students gain practice by exhibiting their skills through individual and group presentations, performance and script writing.Teacher's Bio
