Lions Park Paw Prints

Letter from the Principal

Dear Lions Park Families,

We had another nice week here at Lions Park. Today started off with a delicious breakfast organized by our PTO and many other families. This afternoon we had a wonderful time with our fifth graders at their PTO Kona Ice Social. This is one of many activities planned for our fifth-grade students this year. We are so fortunate to have a PTO that plans such memorable activities for our students and shows such appreciation for our staff.

The Mount Prospect Police Department is implementing a new program to Mount Prospect called “Fist Bump Friday” where officers will be at a school during arrival time on Friday mornings through the Fall to greet students with a positive fist bump as they arrive to learn. This program looks to help connect students, families and staff with our officers and begin Fridays with a fun and positive start. They look forward to greeting our students and sharing a small gesture of teamwork and encouragement for the day. Other neighborhood schools have already started this exciting opportunity, and we will have our turn next week. Lions Park is on the schedule for Friday, September 30th.

The PTO is looking for parent volunteers who would like to help in the LRC this year. Volunteers will assist with book check out and you can choose to volunteer when your student has library time. If you are interested, please email Terry at and you will receive a follow-up email from Terry or Roseann Houghton with information and guidelines about signing up.

Enjoy the long weekend and Shanah Tova to those celebrating Rosh Hashanah.
