Lions Park Paw Prints

Letter from the PTO

Dear Lions Park Families,

We hope that everyone had a relaxing and restorative spring break. We are officially in the home stretch of the 2021-22 school year. It has been so nice to have some normalcy this school year and to see our children doing so well. The PTO has some exciting things happening in these final months of the school year. We are thrilled to be able to hold the Pawlooza. The talent show will be held on April 27 at 6:00pm, and there will be a school performance as well. If your child is interested in showing off their talents, make sure to get them signed up and reserve a spot for a preview by Friday April 8. The preview will be held on Tuesday April 12.

The PTO is looking for volunteers for the 2022-23 school year. Our board will have openings for a co-president, co- vice president, treasurer, and secretary next year. We are always looking for new faces to come join us. If you are interested in a board position or chairing a committee next year, please reach out to Mallory Reyes or Monica Janiczek. We look forward to working together with you!
