LSES Blessing Box

LSES now has a blessing box. Built and donated for the Lacey students and families. You will find the blessing box sitting outside of the exterior gym entrance. The idea of the blessing box is a free food pantry concept for Lacey students and families. If you need something take something, if you have something to give/donate, leave something. If interested in contributing to the blessing box do so by simply adding your item to the blessing box. Please make sure that all items added are non-perishable, unopened, sealed, and in original container. Thanks!

Chromebook and iPad Resources/Help

The RCPS homepage has a Parents "button" and a Students "button". There are many topics which can be very helpful.

INSPIRE AWARD

You can say thank you to a teacher who has impacted you or your child by nominating him/her for the Inspire Award. This award aims to recognize teachers who go above and beyond in the classroom. Parents, students, pre-service teachers, or classroom volunteers may submit nominations.

The Inspire Award allows the School Board and community to regularly and publicly celebrate the impact that RCPS teachers make each day, whether on a particular child or class, or by encouraging a future teacher.

A teacher may be recognized once during a school year and submissions must be received ten days prior to a board meeting. The person making the nomination will be invited to share his/her nomination essay of up to 200 words with the school board, and will make the presentation of a certificate to the honored teacher.

Just fill out this nomination form.

INSTRUCTION & SCHOOL PROGRAMS

PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization)


Our PTO is a strong, dedicated organization working to provide a better education for children and to bring informative programs for meetings. The PTO meets each month at 6 p.m. and meeting dates are being organized now.


PTA to PTO (from our PTA President, Patti Phillips):

Lacey Spring no longer has a parent teacher group affiliated with the State or National PTA. Instead, we now have the independent Lacey Spring Elementary School PTO. Being independent allows us to support our school and our kids without oversight or regulation from the parent PTA organization. Every family is automatically granted membership in the PTO. The PTO will continue to support the same activities as the PTA did in the past. These include staff appreciation meals, events such as the back to school picnic, Christmas cruise in, End of year picnic and family fun nights (dance/fitness night, etc).

A successful PTO needs all families to be involved. When the PTO is in need of volunteers we will let you know by sending out a Sign Up Genius. We need hands-on volunteers to help at school and/or fundraising events and provide donations for events. We also greatly need volunteers to take on leadership roles in the organization. The PTO board meets monthly and anyone is welcome to attend these meetings to give input and be involved in discussions about PTO business. You may contact the PTO with ideas or suggestions by email at laceyspringpto@gmail.com.
