For the 8th year, Lee-Scott Academy was honored to host the Philanthropy 101 class funded by the W. James Samford Foundation. Nine rising seniors gave up three weeks of their summer to learn about the idea of giving back and the requirements of an organization to be called non-profit.  Through hands on visits to to organizations such as Miracle League, Auburn Therapeutic Camp, Camp ACCSA, Camp Smile-A-Mile, Food Bank of East Alabama, Storybook Farms, Harvest Evangelism and Rescue K911, students were exposed to many organizations in our area. 

At a luncheon, students shared power point presentations announcing the organization each had chosen to receive a $700 stipend. Members from many of these organizations were present to receive the gifts from the Philanthropy 101 students.

Dear Lee-Scott Academy Parents,
After much prayer, two years of extensive study, input from the LSA family, and analysis of our income and expenses, the Board of Trustees voted last week to:
  • During the 2014-15 school year, build a four classroom addition on the elementary building
  • During the 2014-15 school year,  build a four classroom addition on the secondary building
  • During the summer of 2014, build a track to give our elementary students a safe place to run - as opposed to the road - and for use by our physical education classes and track team
  • During the 2014-15 school year, renovate our current locker rooms and coaches offices and build additional locker room facilities and a physical education classroom  
  • Commit to building a performing arts center/auditorium at a future date, to be determined when the funding becomes available
The cost of the projects above is approximately $4,040,190.  Donations from our stakeholders will be necessary to complete the approved projects.  The board welcomes gifts earmarked to any of the above projects or gifts given to the full project.
At the same board meeting the board recognized the contributions of all employees of Lee-Scott and voted to give all employees a two percent raise effective July 1, 2014.
It’s a great time to be a part of Lee-Scott Academy!
Mike Speakman
Board President

PTO School Supply Kit Fundraiser

The Lee-Scott Academy PTO is offering parents the opportunity to purchase a school supply kit for next year, available to 1st-6th graders. No more running around days before school starts to find everything on the supply list, just purchase the kit online at your convenience before June 6th and VOILA, your child’s kit will be waiting on him/her in their classroom on the first day of school. This is a Lee-Scott PTO fundraiser so there is a slight margin of profit to help fund the PTO budget for the coming year. As you know, Lee-Scott PTO helps fund various projects for teachers in the classroom and several school wide initiatives. This is a fundraiser and not a requirement.

The website to order is www.shopttkits.com and our school account # is 86704. Simply find the grade your child will be in next year (2014- 2015) and click his/her grade. It’s that simple!

Please note that backpacks are NOT included in the kit but can be purchased additionally from the website.

Note for Rising 6th graders:

You are required to have a $15 iTunes gift card to purchase necessary apps for 6th grade. These will not be included in the kit from the company but is included in the cost. The Lee-Scott PTO will purchase the cards for those that purchase a kit and insert them in your kit before the first day of school.

Please look for the order form coming home soon!

For any questions please contact Laura McKay

From Dr. Roberts:

Based on all the current information from LCEMA, we will have school as scheduled tomorrow. It appears that the bad weather will arrive here tonight and be gone by 6:00 am tomorrow. The second round will arrive late Tuesday afternoon and leave after midnight.

Obviously any of this could change. If it does we will make whatever changes are necessary to our schedule to provide for the safety of our students and employees. Parents and employees should be aware of the conditions at their home locale in the morning and adjust travel decisions accordingly.

Please monitor our website for any changes.

LSA junior, Patrick Starr, was recently selected by the Opelika Young Entrepreneurs Academy to present his business ideas to an investor panel at Southern Union State Community College. The YEA! is a groundbreaking nine-month program that guides students through the process of starting a real business, including a business plan, development, pitching to an investor panel, obtaining funding, launching the venture, managing media campaigns, e-commerce and web development, sales events, and trade shows.  Four local students presented their business plans to an Investor Panel.  The panel chose an overall winner, Patrick Starr, to represent our area in Boca Raton, Florida in May.  The winner in Boca Raton will go to Washington, D.C., to compete for a $30,000 scholarship.
