Thanksgiving Lunch/Family Picnic Dates

This year due to LISD Child & Nutrition Services staffing shortages, we will NOT be able to serve Thanksgiving meals to guests.

Students will have a Thanksgiving meal provided for them on Thursday, November 18.

We do, however, miss seeing our families in our school! Thanksgiving lunch was always a great day for families to join their student. To continue the tradition of families joining their student during this time, we've decided to allow for families to come to campus and have lunch "picnic style" during their child's lunch time on designated days next week (Weds-K,1,2 & Thurs 3,4,5).

Families can:

  • bring their own food
  • bring a blanket or chairs
  • picnic with their student on the grass (location is the outdoor space between the MPR & the K/1 wing)

On Wednesday, November 17 we welcome parents of students in K, 1st, & 2nd to come picnic during their child's lunch time.

On November 18 we welcome parents of students in 3rd, 4th, & 5th to come picnic during their child's lunch time.

PRE-REGISTER HERE to make check in a snap!

While families are here they can shop the Book Fair and sign up for Giving Tree.

Visit the Book Fair!

In- Person Book Fair starts on Wednesday, November 17 and continues through Thursday, November 18th in the RPE Library!

The Fair will be open before school and during the day for students, as well as after school on Wednesday and during the Thanksgiving Lunch on Thursday. Please join us for our return to in-person shopping or shop online anytime between November 11th and 24th.

Set up an eWallet for your student now so they can shop on their own in person or online.

Please consider volunteering to help us make this event a success!
