Lions Park Paw Prints

Letter from the Principal

Dear Lions Park Families,

I am excited that the time change this weekend will result in longer periods of daylight. It is an exciting time of year with many celebrations of the arts and learning in the months to come. On Tuesday we will highlight the accomplishments of our scientists at our STEM Fair. All students will visit the fair on Tuesday afternoons, and it will be open to their families that night from 5:30-6:30 PM.

The days we have warmer weather can be very wet and muddy. It may be a good idea to send rain boots on these days or to send dry pants and socks.

The next Lions Park PTO meeting will be held virtually via zoom. Please feel free to join us for the meeting to find out about some future volunteer opportunities.

Next PTO Meeting: Rescheduled for Monday March 14, 2022 at 7pm Zoom Link: Meeting ID: 788 770 0564
