Student Lighthouse Team for Students in Grades 3-5

Labrador Families,

As you know, we are committed to empowering your child and helping every student find their voice so they can become leaders. In an effort to take student empowerment to an even higher level, we are seeking interested students for our 2022-23 Student Lighthouse Team! Our goal is to have student representatives from the 3rd-5th grade level with the intention to offer the primary grades and opportunity later in the school year. We would like to have a team in place by the beginning of Trimester 2.

The Student Lighthouse Team is a group of students in our school who synergize to have a positive impact on students, staff, families, and communities. SLT often sponsors family learning events and initiatives, school beautification efforts, emotional environment campaigns, and community service projects. They also expand student leadership roles, create student input systems, plan for schoolwide and community events, and maintain our school wide scoreboards.

Successful SLT Members;

  • Are dependable, reliable, and respectful

  • Complete classwork and homework assignments on time

  • Possess a strong work ethic

  • Independent self starter

  • Demonstrate exemplary conduct and citizenship in and out of school

  • Have excellent attendance (are on time with limited absences and early check outs)

  • Demonstrate good judgment and decision making skills

  • May be comfortable with public speaking

  • Have the willingness to teach and or demonstrate the 7 Habits to other students

  • Will be able to attend SLT meetings after school

If your child possesses the successful habits listed above and are interested in this leadership role, please have them apply for the position. Applications will be available on October 24th and will be posted in the MPR on the Leadership Jobs Application Board.

PTO Meeting

Our next PTO Meeting of the school year will be on Wednesday, October 26 at 6:30 pm in the Science Room. This month we will have guests from the LVJUSD Bond Office present about the district’s Facilities Master Plan and how it relates to Measure G.

Right at School will be providing on-site child care to potty-trained children for interested families. If you are interested in placing your child in their care during the PTO Meeting, please fill out this interest form: by Monday 10/24 at noon.

For those unable to attend in person, our Zoom link will be and the passcode is “LoveRLabs”.

Please note. For the safety of all involved, before entering Zoom please change your name on Zoom. List your first name, last name, and student’s teacher name (e.g. Jack Skellington, Mrs. Plattner.) If these are not listed when logging in, you will not be allowed to enter Zoom. Thank you for your understanding as we do our best to keep our Labrador families safe.

Believe Kids Fundraiser

Today (Friday 10/21) starts our Believe Kids Fundraiser with Shop Fund. This fundraiser was established well before the successes of both Fun Run and Wine Country Nights. Everyone has worked really hard to raise funds for our Labradors, and what a fabulous job you have done! Please do not feel obligated to participate, we don’t want to put any undue stress on our families! If you would like to participate, there are a lot of great items available, perfect for the forthcoming holiday season! Having seen the joy and excitement on the students’ faces on Monday, the PTO has decided that the money raised during this fundraiser will go directly toward MORE ASSEMBLIES! Benefitting the whole school, TK-5, we will work toward finding assembly opportunities that are not only educational but also fun! We thank you for your consideration and look forward to some awesome assembly programming in the near future. :)

If you would like to participate, paper brochures will go home with students today, or you can register your family and sign up for online sales at
