Lascassas Elementary School
Happy New Year!
The LES PTO is ready for another amazing year at Lascassas Elementary School. We have already had a great start by loading up the teacher supply closet. The Christmas Treasures event raised $4,272.00. We were able to use half of those proceeds to stock the teacher supply closet with many of the items that teachers need throughout the school year.
The items bought are various and include different types of paper, file folders, paper clips, staples, and page protectors to name just a few. The teachers will be able to look in this closet for items they need everyday instead of using their own pockets. The PTO plans to use the remaining proceeds from Christmas Treasures to restock the supply closet in August as everyone returns to school.
We had a great teacher luncheon on Friday, January 13, that was provided by the third grade class. A BIG "Thank you!" to all that helped make that luncheon a success. All the teachers were (as always) very appreciative of the wonderful lunch.
Our next luncheon will be on the half day, February 2. This lunch will be provided by the second grade parents.
Panther Prowl 2017
Panther Prowl is right around the corner and is planned for Thursday, March 23. Panther Prowl is a run / walkathon type event held at LES and is always a lot of fun. We will need lots of parent help at Panther Prowl to help count laps that students walk or run that day. This is the biggest fundraiser for the school. Students will run or walk laps in the circle drive in front of the school. Awards will be given to the student with the most laps per grade and in the school as a whole. Students will collect donations to sponsor their run/walk efforts or they can get one time donations. Our goal is to raise $16,000 this year. These forms will be coming home in early March.
Each child in the school will receive a t-shirt to wear for the day of Panther Prowl. All PTO sponsor names will be listed on the back of the t-shirts. We will also be sending home forms to fill out if you would like to be a t-shirt sponsor.
We will have a spirit week leading up to the Panther Prowl with special themed days. The themes for those days will be announced at the beginning of March. If we happen to have rain on March 23, then Panther Prowl will be held on March 24.
