Letter from the PTO

Dear Lions Park Families,

It is hard to believe that we are already heading into the final days of the 2022-2023 school year. This year has flown by and I know many of us are gearing up for summer! The PTO had another busy and fun month!

We started off the month with our “Coolest School Contest” at Capannaris. Thank you to all of the teachers who scooped for our children and the families who came out and supported this fun event! The students enjoyed their final special lunch of the school year from Tortorice’s Pizza. A HUGE thank you to Vicki Fink and Erica Gordon for all of their hard work on the special lunch program this year!

Staff Appreciation Week was a busy week full of fun surprises and treats for our AMAZING Lions Park Staff. From special lunches, shopping, breakfasts, gift cards, and flowers we hope we were able to show just how much we love and appreciate all of our staff. Thank you to Melissa Nelson for all of her hard work for Staff Appreciation Week!

We also hosted our annual Spring Fling. Thank you to our many families for coming out to have

some fun even though we had to move indoors because of the rain. The children had so much fun playing carnival games and dancing together. Thank you to Carly Bennett for all of her work on making the Spring Fling a success-no matter the weather!

Also, a huge thank you to those parents who have been participating in the Box Tops for Education program! We just received a check for another $40 thanks to this program! Keep it up!


● Field Day: May 26

● Last day of school & Kona Ice Treat: June 1

The PTO is looking for volunteers for the 2023-2024 school year.. We are always looking for new faces to come join us. If you are interested in chairing a committee next year, please reach out to Mallory Reyes or Morgan Tone. We look forward to working together with you!

Our next PTO meeting will be held in person at Mrs. P and Me. The PTO will celebrate our

successes over the past year and thank our members by providing appetizers from 7-8 and have our regular business meeting from 8-9. We would love to have parents come and find out more about PTO related events and future volunteer opportunities. We look forward to seeing all of you at our final PTO meeting of this school year!

Please plan to pick up your child’s medication at the end of the day on your child’s last day of attendance. All medications not picked up by the end of the school year will be destroyed. Medical paperwork that needs to be completed for the next school year was sent home in the backpack on May 1st. We appreciate your assistance with picking up your child’s medication.
