Join us October 12th to celebrate the benefits of walking and biking to school. Remember the thrill of riding a bike for the first time or walking (or rolling) to school. The feeling of joy and independence, sense of adventure and accomplishment! There are many other health, community and environmental benefits to walking, biking or rolling to school. Mark your calendars and plan to Bike, Roll or Walk to school on October 12th and promote biking and walking to school safely in ACPS schools. https://www.walkbiketoschool.org/

If you have clothing to donate, donations are welcome at any time and can be dropped off at the front office. They can also be dropped off during the time uniform lockers are held. We kindly ask that you please launder the items you bring in to donate before dropping them off.

Walk-A-Thon Fundraiser NOW OPEN!
THIS IS OUR LARGEST FUNDRAISER OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. OUR GOAL FOR THIS EVENT IS $45,000.
When: Monday, October 31st, 2022
What: Each child will participate in the Walk-A-Thon (to the best of their ability) during their class designated Encore period. Each grade will have 45 minutes to complete as many laps as possible. It will take a few minutes to get everyone going and to get everyone back to class, so they will not be running/walking the entire 45 minutes…but they will have plenty of time to get in some good laps! This year, the Walk-A-Thon is being held on the Core Knowledge Book Character Dress-up Day. So that means the students will be running or walking in costume, if they choose to dress up. Please keep this in mind!
Donating to the Participants Please consider donating towards our once a year fall fundraiser. We take cash, check, PayPal, Square, and Venmo. Feel free to circulate the above link to friends and family.
To donate by Venmo (our preferred online payment method since there are no fees), please donate to @LCTAFundraisingEvents (phone number ending in 9252) or https://www.venmo.com/u/LCTAFundraisingEvents
Each donor will receive a "thank you" email when a donation is made to a participant. At the conclusion of the fundraiser, parents/guardians will be notified with a list of all the donations made in the name of their child/ren. If you would like to see a list of donors who sponsored your child before the conclusion of the fundraiser, please email.
