Lodestone News

Once a month we are looking to promote Family Night. This idea came from a few of our teachers in order to provide opportunities for parents to spend time with their children and community. We want to see more of our students spend more time with family andΒ friends and less on electronics! Please join us for:

Family Bingo NightΒ 
Date: Friday, 9/20
Time: 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Cost: $10 for one adult and child (includes slice of pizza, water bottle, cookie, and pack of games for each); $5 for each additional person (meal included), $3 for each additional player (meal not included)

Family Craft
Date: Friday, 10/18
Time: 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Details will soon be provided but please save the date!

We also wanted to promote a book for young children,Β Morning Bug Lane. It was written by one of our parents, Coretta Morning, and the book is available at Lodestone Academy, Amazon, and Barnes & Nobles! Check out the book below:

We hope to see you at our Family Night events and in the fall! We wish all parents and students a wonderful rest of the summer!
