WELCOME TO THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR!!

We're baaaaaaack! It's hard to believe that after 6 months off, we are FINALLY back in school! It feels so good to see little faces excited for a new school year. Even though things look a little different this year, the family feeling that runs through LSE remains the same. Whether your child is physically in the school, or learning from home, we are all still an important part of LSE! While we ae not certain what this year will bring in the form of our typical events, we PROMISE that we will find some creative ways to make sure that this is a fantastic and FUN year for ALL of our students, no matter what option you chose! We do ask for your patience and grace as we navigate the year that is unlike any other that we've been a part of. We will continue to keep you posted on events and information as it is finalized via newsletters, emails, our Facebook page and our Google Classroom that will be coming soon!


We hope that you will join us at our first meeting on September 22 via Zoom! Meetings are a fantastic way to learn more about what is going on behind the scenes and to meet other LSE families. While meetings are via Zoom for the remainder of 2020 (every other month), we hope for the ability to return to face to face meetings in 2021, so we can get to know all of you in a more personal setting.


WELCOME to LSE and this brand new school year! We can't wait to make some great memories with all of our LSE families!

2020-21 PTO MEMBERSHIP DRIVE IN ON!

This is one of the largest fundraisers of the year and allows the PTO to purchase things such as spirit shirts (EVERY student and staff receives a FREE shirt!), yearbooks, library books & much more!


As a thank you for your support, every $25 donated will receive one awesome "Wildcat Strong" stainless steel straw tumbler (perfect for filling at school or at home!)! That means if you donate $50, you will receive 2 tumblers! For every $5+ donation will receive one awesome LSE Pawprint Magnet!


Due to restrictions, we are trying to move to an online-based system, so we encourage you to visit our "store" to donate (click on the button below the prizes)! Please be sure to list your child's name as well as their grade/teacher so we know which classroom to send home items with (this will happen later in September)! If you are unable to join online, you may still send in a check/cash with the Membership Form included in the Welcome Packet that you received at Orientation (it's also uploaded in the "files" section of our Facebook page), please follow the instructions for checks on that form and return it to school with your student. The classroom with the highest participation (# of students that participate) will get to NAME THE MAIN HALLWAY of LSE for the year! While membership may be submitted at any time, only donations received before October 9th will be counted towards the class total (donations submitted after that date may not receive prizes if there are none remaining).


We THANK YOU so much for your generosity & support and we look forward to an amazing year for ALL of our LSE students! 🐾💙🐾

JOIN US FOR MOE'S TACO POP-UP CURBSIDE @ LSE ON SEPTEMBER 11th!

Attention friends, neighbors, local Queso-lovers, and LSE family!!


We are hosting a Moe’s Southwest Grill Popup on Friday September 11th! We know that the first week of school can be exhausting so here's a fun way to end the week and an easy & delicious dinner! This means you can take a night off from cooking while supporting our school PTO at the same time! For every kit sold, $5 will be donated to the LSE PTO which will be used to help purchase spirit shirts, library books, student supplies, yearbooks and much more!


Moe's is offering a Family Taco Kit with your choice of chicken, ground beef, ½ chicken & ½ ground beef or vegetarian, along with all of the "extras" (see flyer for all included ingredients). Cost for your entire meal is $34.99+tax.


This is a fun, convenient way to have dinner ready to pick up right in the neighborhood and see (from a safe distance) some friends and family you maybe haven’t seen for a while, even if it’s just for a minute. Take a much-deserved night off from cooking and order a family night of tacos! Show your school spirit!

PTO Welcome Message

YOU put the "P" in PTO!

Getting involved in your child's education is an experience to remember! Whether it's volunteering at an event, helping at school during the day, or helping with things from home, your time and assistance are what puts the "P" in PTO! Our mission is to support and enrich the experience of our staff & students, but we operate solely on volunteers. Many hands make light work, and we happen to also have a lot of fun doing it! In this day and age of a multitude of commitments, we value any time you can offer in any way that you are able. Your kids will think it's pretty cool too! We hope that you will consider lending a hand to make the 2020-2021 school year amazing!

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

CLEARANCES

Just a friendly reminder that many PTO activities and events require volunteers to have their clearances on file with the district. Information and instructions for completing these requirements can be found here: https://www.dallastown.net/cms/one.aspx?portalId=159539&pageId=551089


While volunteers are not currently permitted in the buildings, we are hopeful that this will change by the end of the school year. Taking care of this part now will allow you to help with school needs/events as soon as we are given the "green light"!


We very much appreciate all of the parents who have already submitted their clearances. Without parent volunteers, the PTO couldn't do all the great things we do for our school!

A note about our new newsletter format...

We have switched to an online-based newsletter format, which will allow you to easily access direct links to information and is more user-friendly. We hope that you find this streamlined format useful and easy to navigate.


In an effort to keep our content more relative, we are no longer including our Treasurer's Report. If you would like to view the Treasurer's Report for a specific month, please email ptoatlse@gmail.com and we will be happy to share that with you (pending approval at our bi-monthly PTO Meetings)
