Walk-a-Thon! – This is it!.
We are half way to our goal with one week to go! Submit your donation either online or by returning the form that went home in your child’s backpack. Dr. Zissios has asked for every family to participate and sponsor your child(ren)! See us outside school in the next few days at drop off. It is that easy! Bring your checkbook, cash or credit card. Every child who participates will receive a watch pedometer and get to join our Health/Wellness Vendors on the field. Please sponsor your child and circulate the fundraising link amongst families and friends. Sign up to volunteer. Join us and enjoy this fun day with your school!
Penny Drive! - Thursday October 25th, Friday October 26th at morning drop off. Have you children join in with their support of walk-a-thon and drop off your loose change.
We are so pleased to see the children enjoying the new equipment on our grounds. This was not an easy or inexpensive undertaking. You may have questions…why these pieces, what next and ideas for what you want to see happen with the grounds. Concerns/questions about our grounds has been the #1 concern expressed by new parents about LCTA. Get involved!! The only way that we can see our way to a complete redesign of our grounds is by parental involvement. We need you! This is a multi-year project. If you have younger children in the school and would like to be a part this initiative, please contact Kim: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re hard at work on the PTA Member Directory! We are getting a lot of new members with our recent membership drive. We will distribute it by the end of the month.
Look for information about this important program in your Wednesday folders. We are still looking for parent volunteers to lead the following activities; Celebration of Our First Responders in December, Meals on Wheels in January, Used Book Drive in February, and planting ﬂower pots for a nursery/assisted living home in April. If you are interested in volunteering to lead any of these activities, please be in touch with Molly Groom at email@example.com
