On Founder’s Day in 2015, LCIS started a new tradition to connect alumni families with the school by planting a lignum vitae tree, the national tree of The Bahamas, and creating the Alumni Parent garden. James Bernard, who attended LCIS from 1986- 1994, received a plaque from his son, George, who joined Preschool this year. The Bernards are the 17th family to join this special group. 21
