Fall Physical Education Fundraiser


LaMotte's Physical Education program is largely supported by your generous donations. Every fall, the parent group holds a P.E. fundraiser so that the students can enjoy some amazing physical experiences such as swim & ski lessons plus the climbing and tumbling gym. With the P.E. funds, we have also purchased new basketball hoops and the awesome skating rink (which is a huge advantage come winter but does require funds every year to maintain). We can work together to give the LaMotte Bears the BEST Physical Education possible, even without a school gym! Look for a flyer next week with more info for our Fall Fundraiser on Thurs. Oct. 10 at 2:15 pm.

With gratitude, LaMotte Parent Group.

Box Tops & Labels for Education Program

Welcome back to school! We will be participating in both the Labels for Education and the Box Tops for Education™ programs again this year. Send clipped labels to school with your child as you collect them and I will submit them. Sign up at to get coupons and stay updated on our school’s earnings. Money raised from Box Tops is used by the Parent Group to fund projects at the school and Labels earnings can be used by the teachers to get supplies for the classroom. Thanks for helping!
