Letter from the Principal
Dear Lions Park Families,
Thank you all so very much for a WONDERFUL staff appreciation week! Our staff thoroughly enjoyed the messages, cards, kind words, jokes, school supplies, flowers, food, and gifts. It is our pleasure to come to Lions Park each day and work with your children. We are fortunate to work with families as supportive and generous as yours. We want to also thank our PTO and the staff appreciation week chairs Mayte Costales and Tia Wente. They provided the staff with many meals and treats throughout the week with donations from all of you.
This is such an exciting time of year! We look forward to our Spring Book Fair and Fine Arts Night on Wednesday, May 11th. All students will have artwork on display from 5:30-7 pm, and our chorus students will perform at 7 pm. All families can also visit the book fair from 5:30-7 pm. We look forward to highlighting our students' achievements in the fine arts.
We are looking forward to our annual Field Day on May 25th (the rain date of May 26th). This is a fun day of outdoor activities and games. We need parent volunteers for this day. Please sign up at this link. The second and third grades will be in the morning and the fourth and fifth grades will be in the afternoon.
Lions Park would like to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms and to all who play special roles in the lives of our students.
Have a wonderful weekend!
