I used to be a student @ L.P.S. back in 1973. I graduated from L.P.S. in the eighties. I would not be doing as well as I am today if it wasn't for the school. The staff at the school was great. If you attend this school, you are lucky. The school has changed since I left, but the staff is still focused on each student. There are no other school quite like L.P.S. Thanks for all the wonderful memories and friendships over the years. Go Panthers!!!
