Students will ask relatives and friends to sponsor their efforts! We are asking for a $.25 minimum donation per lap walked or flat donations.

There will be many awards given to students who raise the most money, students who walk/run the most laps, and students who try the hardest! EVERY Walk-a-Thon participant will be recognized.

All Walk-a-thon monies are due by Friday, Sept. 29th.

Parent volunteers are an essential component of our TWBI program. We appreciate the commitment you made to sign up for a parent committee and volunteer within the classroom. In order to volunteer, you must have completed the Volunteer Packet. If you completed a volunteer packet in a previous year, you are already in the system and are good to volunteer with teacher permission! If you have not completed the volunteer packet it is available at this link: Volunteer Packet. If you have any questions about your volunteer status you can check with Julia in the office.

Parent Teacher Association:

ALL NEW AND RETURNING STUDENTS MUST review the Parent Annual Notifications and update their emergency contact information online through the Aeries Parent Portal . You have a limited amount of time to do this before the portal closes to changes for the year, so please don't delay. If you have a new student to the District this year, you will need to create a portal and you should have received information on how to do that. Keeping your child’s portal information (phone, email, address, etc) current is crucial as it is how we contact you in an emergency. As well, there is annual digital “paperwork” in there that is required by the District each year - just be sure to go into all areas of the portal each school year.


We are excited to announce that LTUSD will continue to use the school-to-home communications platform called ParentSquare. If you have not, please accept the invitation you should have received separately from Aeries Communication so that all school/grade level and classroom information will continue to be sent to your computer or phone via email and/or text.
