2017-2018 Year End Wrap Up



Dear Les Bois Parents,


As the school year comes to a close, we want to thank you for the

opportunity to work with your students. We appreciate all you do to get your

students to school on time, prepared to work. Your support of student’s academic

and extra-curricular activities has a huge impact on their individual school

performance.


Our Parent Teacher Organization has been very busy supporting students

and staff at Les Bois. I hope many of you will consider volunteering and helping

this group with their many activities here at the school. Many hands make light

work. Our thanks to all of you for your generous support of PTO and especially

our board members. A very special thank you to our PTO President, Tom Starr for

his leadership.


Les Bois is a tremendous place for students and staff. Our students are

outstanding and so is our staff. We have been very impressed with how well

students and staff work together to increase and improve learning in our school. I

could easily recommend any student to be at Les Bois. This is a very good school!

Our hope is that you all have a wonderful summer and look forward to

coming back to Les Bois for the 2018-19 school year. Good luck to our Freshman

class and to your new adventures at Timberline High. It has been a great year!

PTO News

Greetings from Les Bois PTO


We are happy to say PTO had a successful was a success. I would remind you, that at our school, we are fortunate that we do not have to participate in a fundraiser to promote and fund activities at our school. To continue in this tradition, we will need you to volunteer at the Outpost.


I can tell you that without the excellent support of the staff and administration at Les Bois, we would have not been able to accomplish all of the great things we have in the past years. I am excited to see all of the projects and goals that we have been able to achieve and hope to see them continue in the future.


Have a great summer!


Spirit Wear

Les Bois Spirit t-shirts and sweatshirts will be available for purchase during schedule pick-up on August 8th and 9th, and during the school year at the Outpost/Concessions.
