Current and Upcoming LCTA PTA Happenings

It’s no school November!.....Here are our updates of what is happening with the PTA and upcoming.         


Walk-a-Thon! – Thank you!

Thank you to our amazing community for rallying behind us on this fundraising event. We are so grateful for your support and thrilled to report that we have reached ******$51, 700.44************and still counting. Fundraising will remain open through the Prize Assembly on November 16th.

The PTA is very happy with the fundraising outcome but even more so for the success of the great community event enjoyed by parents and children alike. This year we orchestrated a few changes to what was the third annual walk-a-thon event for LCTA. We removed the competitive laps element replacing it with a parade around the perimeter of the school to allow every child in our school to participate at their own pace. We took our fundraising in-house allowing us to keep 100% of funds raised and with it we removed the option to publish individual child fundraising totals changing our merit prizes to celebrate group totals, classes and grades as opposed to individuals. These changes were implemented to align with our ROARS and character counts programs at our school. We also added a community health and wellness activities piece to the field and were pleased to expose children to a wealth of experiences ; Yoga, Pilates, Soccer, Play, Martial Arts and Movement. We were pleased to be joined on the day by Congressman Don Beyer, Mayor Allison Silberberg and School Board Members who took the time to meet our students and parents, learn about our school and participate in the activities. We have heard from many of our members about how they enjoyed the day. Please share your feedback with funraisingevents@lctapta.org so we can best serve our community.  We value your opinion! Thank you to our faculty and staff, all our wonderful volunteers, the PTA executive board and the Yearbook crew!


Remember today was the deadline for submitting your request for a class photo from the walk-a-thon. Photos will be distributed after the upcoming Thanksgiving break.


Boxtops!

Keep sending them in to your classrooms. Every classroom has a container. It is an easy way for us to raise money for our school!
