As always, LKCS students will have to earn at least two (2) LKCS Bucks to participate in the event. Teachers will award weekly LKCS Bucks to their students based on the following: 1) academic performance and effort, 2) attendance and 3) behavior.
The film “Hop” will also be shown in the campus auditorium. If the weather allows, a Easter Egg Hunt will take place on the campus lawn. So students are asked to bring Easter baskets or sacks to carry their eggs. We are very excited about this Title I Incentive!
