LCTA PTA eROAR, May 6, 2020

LCTA PTA News Teacher Appreciation Week! May 4-8 PLEASE have your students reach out directly to their teachers (don't forget Encore teachers!) and staff this week.  Our teachers are going above and beyond to ensure the students of LCTA have access to continued learning. THANK YOU THANK YOU!  And thanks to all who submitted photos for our slideshow. National School Nurse Day, Wednesday, May 6, 2020 School nurses support students and student health every day of the year. But, on National School Nurse Day, we take special time to celebrate and recognize the contributions that school nurses are making to the health and learning of our nation’s 50 million children. ACPS is fortunate to have a dedicated Registered Nurse in every school. Thank you to Nurse Wood for all you do to care for our students and staff!  Community Connect Program "The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members." - Coretta Scott King Introducing our Community Connect Program: In light of the COVID-19 situation, our LCTA PTA board is brainstorming on how we as a community can best strengthen and encourage one another as we balance work, distance-learning, childcare, and self-care while keeping worries — both our children’s and our own — under control. We don’t have to do it alone. This program is designed to connect LCTA community members to each other to provide support and foster relationships. Our hope is that this program will provide a means through which we can truly be there for each other and we highly encourage you to participate! Enrollment: Feedback During this unprecedented time we welcome any feedback you have for the LCTA PTA. Feel free to visit our feedback survey at any time. It will remain up on our website and continue to evolve. General Membership Meetings Thanks to all who attended our general membership meeting last Wednesday.

Yearbook 2019-20 Yearbooks will be delivered to our school at the start of the 20-21 school year.  A process will be in place for families who are no longer at the school to pick theirs up. For those who have moved out of the area, we will ship them. We will not order many extra books, therefore yearbooks will need to be pre-ordered.
