Back to School! You can join the PTA easier than ever. Simply Paypal 6$ to firstname.lastname@example.org, including your name, and the name of your child's teacher's notes. PTA officers are Sarah Stelmok (4th grader, President), Ciara Martin (2nd grader, Vice President), Brittany Whitaker (Kindergarten, Secretary), and Elizabeth Baldin (Kindergarten, Treasurer). Meetings will be both virtual and in person, held on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 6:30PM. School hours; doors open at 8AM, tardy bell at 8:30, dismissal at 3:15. PTA Facebook page is www.facebook.com/lues.fred.pta so you can join. Helpful tips for K-2. Place a name tag sticker on your child on first day of school with teacher name and student last name, this will help facilitate getting them to their classroom quickly. Name tag stickers can be picked up at the PTA table at orientation. Packing lunch? Put all food in easy to access ziplock bags for easy access. Pack an extra outfit for your child, accidents happen! Don't forget water! Students are allowed a water bottle in class. Pack an extra face mask, kindergartners, 1st graders, and 2nd graders will be given a lanyard to attach to their masks. Students forgot lunch/snack, no worries. All students get a free breakfast and snack, snacks provided to those who didn't pack one. Driving your student? Practice them getting in and out of the car on their own, assistance is provided, but a child being able to buckle/unbuckle themselves saves time in the car line. The Read-A-Thon fundraiser will be held in Spring 2022, all students receive a free book to kickstart a love of reading, more details to come. Classrooms will also be collecting loose change this year, money goes towards teacher holiday gifts from the class, the classroom in each grade that collects the most change (highest dollar amount) wins a Holiday Donut Party!
