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.
This time last year my blog offered some friendly information about our Registrar, Mrs. Mary Fairchild. However, Mary is only half of the dynamic duo in the Admissions Office. This year, let me introduce you to Mrs. Deanna DeLegge.
The LCS Enrollment Team consists of the Director of Enrollment (that’s me!), the Registrar (that’s Mary) and our Administrative Assistant. Deanna joined the Enrollment Team in the fall of 2012. She is the Administrative Assistant in the Admissions Office, or as Mary and I like to refer to her, “the nice one of the bunch!” If I had to pick three words to describe Deanna it would be welcoming, caring and servant-hearted. She radiates warmth to everyone who walks through the Admissions Office door. And believe me, that door opens and closes almost non-stop this time of year during reenrollment. Her pleasant demeanor and helpful spirit are a tremendous blessing to our families as they navigate the admissions process and become acquainted with the LCS community.
Some of Deanna’s responsibilities include receptionist duties in the Admissions Office, managing our reenrollment process, greeting families arriving for admission interviews and assisting the Registrar in processing new applications, distributing admissions information to open house guests, overseeing our substitute teacher process and providing administrative support to the Director of Special Programs. She is a busy lady!
That is the professional Deanna. Here are a few facts about Deanna the wife, mom and friend:

As you are dropping off your matriculation fee or just passing by the Admissions Office, be sure to greet Deanna with the same warm smile that she extends to us all on a daily basis. Thank you, Deanna, for serving our families and for making the LCS Admissions Office a pleasant and welcoming place to be.
