LCE PTO Newsletter

January 2016

Welcome back LCE families!

I hope everyone had a wonderful break with a great combination of fun and relaxation! Unfortunately not as much snow as my family enjoys, but there is still time.

In the next few months, the PTO has lots of fun events planned which are always more successful because of our wonderful volunteers. Parents, grandparents, high school students who need volunteer hours, we are talking to you! This is a direct shout out to the folks who say "I would have loved to have volunteered had I known...".

Want an excuse to see your daughter at the Father Daughter Dance? Volunteer!

Dad's, you can do the same at the Mother Son Bash in March!

Want to do something special for teachers?

Conference dinners are a great way to help!

And those are just a few of the fun things coming up!

Looking forward to a wonderful 2016 and seeing lots of new and familiar faces at these events! Thanks! - Julia Warner: PTO President
