Lakeland Christian SchoolOne of the core values of LCS is the belief that we are partnering with parents in the Christian education of their children. We believe that mutual respect, communication and involvement by all partners is essential for success of our mission.LCS is a school. We believe that being a Christian school and being a top-flight academic institution should not be mutually exclusive. On the contrary, we take the mandate of Colossians 3:23 that calls us to strive to be the best. We provide a variety of rigorous, engaging, academic and co-curricular activities that enable students to identify and express the full range of their unique gifts and abilities.
LCS RISE students had the opportunity to attend the International Women and Girls in Science Day at Florida Polytechnic University. Polytechnic hosted this event to celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, Monday, Feb. 11, at the Innovation, Science, and Technology Building on their campus. Florida Poly faculty, staff and students hosted several area middle school students, and the daylong program included presentations from female engineers employed at Walt Disney World, Duke Energy, and Polk County along with a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) outreach activity.
The RISE students took part in an engineering design which challenged them to build a tower out of straws, paper and masking tape that would hold up to winds but could maintain stability as it grew in height. It was presented as a competition and RISE rose to the occasion taking first place in tallest tower measuring 64 inches tall.
