Lutheran Schools Elementary Tournament [LEST]

 

Every February, older Junior High Academy students have an opportunity to compete at a regional Lutheran schools tournament in Portland, Oregon. Students compete in art, basketball, band, choir, knowledge bowl, math, science, spelling, writing, drama and robotics. We hope to compete in cheer at LEST 2019.
