Community Build Playground for Academy - June 15, 2018

LFDCS' Community Build Playground PDF Print E-mail

Mr. Carerro and Mr. Nigaglioni, together with a crew of parents, teachers, maintenance staff, Yulissa and trained playground professionals were part of a Community Build for the Academy’s new playground at the end of the last school year. They spent the day in unseasonably cold, rainy weather outside putting together a climbing wall, an enormous, colorful play structure with giant jacks and a web to climb, a tri totter, a see saw for standing, and a chunky trekker for balancing. Mr. Hodgkins, Sixta, and Sylvana provided pizza and lemonade for lunch, and teachers brought in cookies and desserts for the workers. Over the weekend, mulch was added and a beautiful new black fence. Our students were thrilled to be able to use for summer school and for this school year! We are so appreciative of all the people who came and volunteered to do this for our students.

Academic Program

Our program includes a dual-language model with students learning in both Spanish and English. The goal is to enable students to attain advanced levels of functional proficiency in two languages and to promote understanding of and appreciation for the cultures represented by the languages studied. The primary objective is to teach students language and literacy skills that will allow them to function effectively in both their personal and professional lives. We feel the development of literacy will foster a love of learning to read, and then the competency of reading to learn.


We believe there is a strong link between school success and effective and consistent leadership. As a result, our Board of Trustees, is composed of parents, alumni and community leaders and provides valuable oversight and focuses on creating and upholding policies that support our students and their families. Our administrative structure consists of a Principal and three Heads of School who manage daily operations and discipline. Leadership from the ranks of the teaching staff is also highly evident, as teachers improve curriculum and serve as mentors to novice educators.

Community Partnerships

Our goal is to work with many individuals and organizations in order to provide the resources necessary to enhance and enrich the lives of our students, both during the day and in our extended day and extended year programs. The quality and breadth of our community partnership program is unique. We work with an extensive array of local private schools, parent and community volunteers and organizations providing on-site programs.

Parent Partners

We believe that when parents are actively involved in their children’s education, students have a better chance of succeeding academically. At LFDCS parents are required to be active participants in the education of their children. Parents serve on our Board of Trustees, participate in training programs designed to help them work with their children at home, volunteer in the classroom and on field trips and assist with fundraising initiatives. All parents sign a contract that places high expectations on their participation both at school and at home.
