From Our Parent Volunteer Organization
Did you know that LVIS has formed a parent volunteer organization? Have you been wanting to get involved and connect with other LVIS parents? We would love to have your participation!
As many of you know, the Intermediate School does not have its own PTO. We are trying to change that! During this upcoming year, we will be actively working to get this organization set up for future Intermediate parents.
What does that mean for you? Principal Sullivan has requested more parent involvement this school year! Sarah Hyde and Jessica Adamo will be reaching out to you throughout the school year. We will need help decorating hallways, supporting/pampering our teachers, praising our superstars for their hard work by decorating lockers and parties, family movie nights, Watch Dogs, Apex volunteering, fundraising to create a better recess environment for our children and more!
Our first official parent involvement activity will be decorating our halls for Homecoming! Please Sign-Up on the Sign Up Genius if you would like to decorate or donate supplies.
Let’s make this year the best yet for our 4th & 5th graders!
Please click here if you are interested in participating
Thanks again for signing up!

A Shout-Out to Our Amazing Staff!
Our incredible staff worked tirelessly to prepare for the start of the school year. They have worked late nights and weekends in order to ensure that they were ready, the room was beautiful, and it was a smooth start to the school year. As I walked into classrooms this week, I have observed incredible conversations designed to build relationships and create a warm and welcoming classroom climate.
I’m sure you have heard many fun snippets from your child about their day. If you have a moment, please feel free to share with your child’s teacher some of the fun things that have been shared at home via email, or have your child write a card or draw a picture for their teacher as a token of appreciation. I know it would make their day!
