Walk to School Day ~ October 7th

Students and families will meet at Ft. Ellis Fire Dept on Wednesday morning and walk to LaMotte. A staff member will be on site at Ft. Ellis at 7:45 A.M. to supervise students and then the group will walk up Bear Canyon at 8:15 A.M. with an escort of fire trucks. Parents and younger siblings are encouraged to walk with the school. We love your furry friends but please leave them at home. Students will be served a healthy snack provided by parents following the walk.

Box Tops & Labels for Education Program

Welcome back to school! We will be participating in both the Labels for Education and the Box Tops for Education™ programs again this year. Send clipped labels to school with your child as you collect them and I will submit them. Sign up at to get coupons and stay updated on our school’s earnings. Money raised from Box Tops is used by the Parent Group to fund projects at the school and Labels earnings can be used by the teachers to get supplies for the classroom. Thanks for helping!
