Mrs. Shaffer’s STEM Update
Hello! We are three weeks into our new school year and everyday is a new adventure! We spent this week sharing our creations from our Mystery Design Challenge bags. It was really fun to see how the students made such different projects, even those that had the same challenge. For the upcoming week, I’ve sent out a Divergent Thinking challenge that all students can try at home. This is not a required activity, but just something fun to help students sharpen their problem solving skills. I’ll continue to send out challenges via Seesaw and Schoology that I will talk about each week during STEM time. When we return to in-person classes, we’ll start working on coding and programming. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
Hang in there -- you’re doing great :-)
100 Mile Club
Hello Longmont Estates Elementary School families!
This year, even while we’re affected by changes at our school, we want to remain active and connected through 100 Mile Club! 100 Mile Club has created a way for families to participate from home and to order the incentive packages directly through them! Below you will find the link for the enrollment form, along with incentive package options and links/QR code for registration.
A separate registration should be completed for each student from your family at the school.
In addition, we encourage family members to join! We have a special discounted rate of $10 for any family member who joins at this time (normally $20).
Upon registration, you’ll receive a tracking sheet to begin monitoring your progress. Plus, we’ll be following up with additional information and ideas for doing 100 Mile Club TO GO! throughout the year. We will also celebrate successes, recognize milestones and encouragement through regular emails from Mr. Newell. It is important to understand that 100 Mile Club will be administered in this virtual format for the duration of the 2020-2021 school year.
Note: Shipping charges apply as the order will be delivered directly to you! Shipping will begin in mid-September, but start tracking your miles NOW!
Our Vision: Healthy, Happy, Connected Kids®, families and communities!

Restaurant Night at Parry's Pizzeria
A restaurant night is a joint effort between the PTO and a restaurant. The restaurant gives our group a percentage of the sales on a designated night for all the customers that our organization brings to their business. The percentage usually ranges from 10 percent to 25 percent, but it varies by restaurant and can be up to 50%.
Eat at Parry's Pizzeria on Wednesday, September 9th from 5:00pm-9:00pm to raise money for Longmont Estates. Parry's will donate 20% of food sales when you dine in or take out. Tell the host or server you're there to support Longmont Estates Elementary PTO.
