CELEBRATING YEARS OF SERVICE

Each year, LJA kicks off the school year with an employee lunch to recognize and thank our employees celebrating milestone anniversaries (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 years). Mahalo to our dedicated employees for your years of service to LJA! A special shout out to High School Principal Vicki McNeill for 25 years of service and Middle and High School Registrar Lizbeth Smith for 30 years of service! 

As a tribute to Mrs. Vicki McNeill celebrating 25 years, here's a throwback pic that we found in the archives. Pictured right is Mrs. McNeill with her 1996 math class.

WILD KIDS 

Thirteen alumni joined our Wild Kids this summer in Montana backpacking, camping, and enjoying the outdoors. It was an extraordinary experience that included more than 30 current LJA students. One of the high school groups did a 72 mile trek; the middle school students experienced Montana at 10,000 feet in the Beartooth Wilderness; and everyone came home with memories that will last a lifetime.
