A big, big thank you for supporting Building for Eternity

Thanks to you our Building for Eternity campaign at South Lancaster Academy raised nearly $750,000 in cash, not including generous donations of time, equipment and labor that likely doubled the dollars. Your gifts:

  • Created a shovel-ready Master Plan with site work approved by the town of Lancaster.

  • Replaced the roof of the elementary building.

  • Removed the underground oil tanks.

  • Connected to Nation Grid, increasing energy incentives.

  • Redesigned both athletic fields and expanded usable playing space.

  • Improved the safety and flow of the pick-up/drop-off zone.

  • Expanded and replaced the parking lot.

As we move forward into our next phase of fundraising, we plan to replace the 50-year-old windows increasing heat efficiency. We will repair and update the bathrooms. And we plan to unite the buildings creating a safer and expanded space for our students.

We are extremely grateful for the support from our church and school family. We know that Adventist education is a powerful ministry creating lifelong followers of Christ. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our children.

Enter to learn. Leave to serve.

Alumni Association looking for new officers and class representatives

Many of you reconnected with friends this past weekend at our annual Alumni Weekend. We were happy to see you walk the halls of SLA again. 

The class with the largest turnout was the honor class of 1978, celebrating their 40th reunion. A couple of members of the class of 1988 proudly showed up with their letter jackets.

The classes that typically have the best attendance returning for Alumni Weekend are those that have an active class representative who contacts each former student from their class. If you'd like to be a class representative, please contact Shauna Neidigh at development@mysla.org or (978) 368-8544, ext. 108.

According to the bylaws of the Alumni Association, it's time to elect officers. Most of our current officers are stepping down from their roles. We are looking for a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Webmaster for a one-year term. The officers plan the Alumni Weekend, any communication to the alumni and other events at their discretion. If you are interested in giving back to your alma mater in one of these capacities, please contact Shauna Neidigh at development@mysla.org or (978) 368-8544, ext. 108.

Plan now to attend next year's Alumni Weekend on Oct. 11-13, 2019. We will be honoring the classes of 1944, 1949, 1954, 1959, 1964, 1969, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009, 2004, 2014.
