The Llewellyn Friday Flyer
September 1, 2023
As always, these first few days have been full of expectations and routines, but as usual our students shined. I saw so many students demonstrating our school values of being safe, responsible, kind and building community. I hope your child has had a great week and shared their highlights with you.
I want to thank all of the families who helped make Llewellyn School look its best on Community Care Day. From weeding to spreading bark dust or pressure washing, our school grounds are shining almost as bright as the families and students who worked incredibly hard to make them beautiful!
As you can see, I am trying a new newsletter format this year. Is there information you would like me to include? I welcome your feedback through email at email@example.com.
Have a fabulous Labor Day weekend! (Remember, there is NO SCHOOL on Monday!)

Favorite Teacher in Elementary School
My favorite teacher in elementary school was my amazing 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Brady. We sang songs, acted out skits, turned the classroom into a restaurant, and memorized the Gettysburg Address in her class! She instilled my love of teaching and learning with her enthusiasm and care.

From The Office
Now is the time to complete the Yearly Verification in ParentVue! (Having trouble getting into ParentVue? Contact the Office!) After logging in, click the Online Registration/Yearly Verification/Transfer Application button at the top of the screen. This is a good time to add Emergency Contacts. Remember: Only people on your Emergency Contact List can pick up your student. And we cannot add them over the phone; only thru ParentVue or in person. If you have an older student who is walking home without an adult, please add "Has Permission to Walk Home" as an Emergency Contact.
Questions? Contact the Office! You can log into ParentVue on a desktop here: https://parent-portland.cascadetech.org/portland/PXP2_Login.aspx
Parent Tip: Add Llewellyn as a contact in your phone (503-916-6216). That way you know it’s us calling and not a Spam call! This is especially important for when the nurse or office need to reach you due to an emergency regarding your student.
From The Library
Book checkouts for grades 1st-5th will begin next Thursday, September 7th. Kindergarteners will wait another week to learn how to take care of our amazing library before taking home a book.
Also, if you are interested in supporting the library, please help us meet our Donors Choose goal so we can create a dedicated space for students who may need to take a step away and reset. An enormous thank you to so many of you who have already made a contribution!

News from the PTA
Welcome back everyone!
We are very excited for what’s already happening in PTA this year. Over the summer we had a few kinder play dates and our popsicle social that welcomed in our new group of kinder students and parents. Let’s make sure to make them feel welcome and help them navigate this wonderful Llewellyn community.
Our gear sale is coming soon so make sure you are registered on Konstella so that you don’t miss out on our new design created by one of our own second grade Llewellyn parents, Tim Coulter! We will have T-shirts, hoodies, and beanies. Look for a sale flyer next week in your child’s folder.
Konstella is where all of our events and fundraisers are posted and where can you sign up to be a part of this amazing organization of Llewellyn parents and teachers. You don’t have to be a parent to volunteer. There is something for everyone in our community from teaching after school classes to volunteering your time at one of our community events.
Our first PTA meeting will be on September 19 at The Bottle Shop at 7 p.m. Please come by and share any ideas you have to make PTA even better and to join with us to help teachers with classroom needs, field trips, and hosting fun filled events for our entire Llewellyn community.
If you have any questions or creative ideas for events, fundraisers or possible sponsorships in our community, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also grab one of our board members when you see them around school.
