The first Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) “Huddle” meeting of the year was held on October 3, and FCA will continue to meet on Wednesdays at 8 a.m. in the Barn. (See LCA family calendar for specific dates, and note that this Wednesday, October 17, at 8 a.m. FCA will meet in the US lunch room.) FCA is geared toward athletics, but it is open to all students from 6th–12th grade.
Another beautiful aspect in this story is how Mrs. Touchton shared with the children that, while someone blessed them in a big way with the tables, they can turn around and bless someone else with a card they make or time they give in helping to make someone’s day brighter or easier. While giving may vary from person to person, we can all show generosity to act on whatever God puts on our hearts to do for someone else who crosses our path. And sometimes the biggest blessing comes in giving to someone who could never repay you!

As a hands-on physics project, the students designed contraptions within certain size and mass restrictions to best protect their eggs during an “egg drop” that took place on Friday—from the top of the football stadium. Mr. Welsch said, “This was a fun way to challenge the kids to think and be creative. I think everyone enjoyed the project without thinking about it being physics. I’m trying to remove the stigma that physics often has.”
