In 2005, under the leadership of our Student Council, the students suggested various mascots for our school. After presentations and discussions, class voting narrowed the choices to three: LFS Cardinals, LFS Hornets and LFS Phoenixes.
The Student Council conducted the balloting and LFS Cardinals was acclaimed the winner. In 2011 the students voted to name our mascot Big Red.
The students impressions of a Cardinal mascot:
- Cardinals are important people in the Catholic Church.
- Students of LFS set big goals just like Cardinals fly high.
- Cardinals are clever, talented and smart just like our students.
- Cardinals are red and red is one of our school colors.
- Cardinals are peaceful like our patron Saint, St. Therese.
