November E-Newsletter

Good morning! Happy (early) Thanksgiving.

Hopefully, you had a chance to read our newsletter about the success of the Race for Education that was sent out yesterday. If not, I'll save you a few clicks. We raised $9,758.91. We are still going to hold a few other smaller fundraisers throughout the rest of the school year so that we can keep providing fun activities for our kids.

If you didn't attend our last meeting, we announced that we will be partnering with the other Lake-Lehman elementaries once again for the Harlem Wizards basketball game. The game will be at Lake-Lehman High School on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 6:30pm. Look for information about where and when ticket pre-sales will be occurring after the holidays. We are also looking for business sponsors. You can find more information on our website:

Our next PTO meeting is on December 4th at 6:30pm in the Cafeteria. It is a holiday party, so we are asking you to bring along a snack. We created a Facebook event that you can RSVP to with what you are going to bring.

Happy Holidays!

Working for the students,

-Michelle Davies
PTO Vice President
