After an uncertain year with many ups and downs, our 2021 seniors received their diplomas yesterday! The ceremony included a time of worship, a slideshow with photos from each student, speeches from our salutatorian Isaac Settle and valedictorian Luke Lepkowski, a song by Bible teacher Mrs. Morelli and Jonathan Stills, a commencement address from our art teacher Mrs. Garlock, awards, and the distribution of diplomas. Congratulations to all of the seniors! We are so proud of everything you have achieved, particularly all that you have overcome this year.
We would like to say thank you to their parents for investing in your children by allowing them to be educated at Lima Christian School. Choosing a private education for your children requires choices and sacrifice, but so often—especially after one of our graduation ceremonies—parents will remark that it was indeed worth it all.
Please enjoy this small collection of photos from yesterday’s graduation ceremony.
Last night, Lima Christian School recognized the most recent inductees to the National Honor Society. Because we were unable to celebrate last year’s inductees due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we also celebrated the honorees from the 2019-2020 school year.
Here are the current members of the NHS from LCS. We are proud of their commitment to community service and persistence in academic studies. Congratulations to all of the honorees!
Congratulations to the cast of “Barbecuing Hamlet” for their successful performances this weekend! Thirteen students were in the cast, with an additional four students taking part in the tech and stage crew.
“The students really persevered through a lot of challenging circumstances, with some students having to quarantine and rehearse via Google Meet for the past few weeks,” said director Mrs. Warsaw. “I’m so proud of everything they were able to accomplish.”
“Barbecuing Hamlet” is written by Pat Cook and was licensed by Eldridge Publishing Company.
On Friday, our Lima Christian School community celebrated the academic success of our students. So many of our students have flourished this year, and we are so proud of all of you. Congratulations to all award recipients!
Today’s first annual LCS Strong Day was a success! One hundred of our community members gathered to declare that we are #BetterTogether and never alone.
Our school counselor Mrs. Tripp introduced the event by sharing the vision for this event. Our hope is that this becomes an annual event where we celebrate one another, promote community, and bring awareness to mental health struggles. “This year has been challenging on a variety of levels,” Mrs. Tripp said. “We have been forced to spend time apart and see people over screens, and we weren’t created to be this way.” We were created to be in community with one another. This year in particular has forced us to be isolated and alone. However, we are not alone! Rather than turning in toward ourselves, we wanted to get together today to celebrate community and be together.
After a time of worship, Mrs. Morelli shared a song and a message with the group. We have all been touched or affected by mental health in some way. The whole world has felt some level of mental health struggle with this global pandemic. Mrs. Morelli gave an example of filling one another’s plates and making sure that no one’s plate is empty. We can serve one another in love. “Let’s approach each other with love, not judgment. Let’s fill one another’s plates. When we do this, we’re LCS strong,” she said. She concluded her message by singing “It’s Always Been You” by Phil Wickham.
We handed out cards with information on mental health struggles and help lines that are available. If you are struggling, please reach out to our guidance office at firstname.lastname@example.org or the school office at (585) 624-3841 for additional resources.
The Lima Christian School Drama Club is THRILLED to invite you to their production of the hilarious play “Barbecuing Hamlet.”
The Peaceful Glen Memorial Players are a community theatre…and not a good one. Their Fine Arts Council has hired a new director from New York, Margo Daley, to direct their next production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. All kinds of eccentric characters come out of the woodwork in this riotous tribute to community theatre. Fast lines and even faster exits punctuate this farce as Margo discovers that although her troupe of misguided actors can’t produce the show of her dreams, she can still have a big impact on their lives.
