Dear LP Families:
Thank you to all of the families who donated food items for our Teacher Appreciation Luncheon this week. What a treat! Some of the highlights included nutty brownies, chicken French, and the strawberry cheesecake pudding dessert. Wow, was that good! Our teachers and I appreciate the special recognition.
We had another beautiful concert this week. The third and fourth grade chorus and junior band rocked the house. Check out our twitter feed for a couple of pictures. Our students' dedication and talent really shined during the concert. We look forward to another concert - fifth grade chorus and senior band - next Thursday at EHS at 7:00. See you there!
Also, don't forget that tonight is the Sadie Hawkins dance here at LP. This is a PTA sponsored even, which would not be possible without the planning and organization of our dedication parent volunteers. Thanks to everyone who made it possible.
