We look forward to seeing all of our students and families at Open House tonight.  We hope you can join us from 5:30-6:45 as our students show off their learning.  Our book fair will also be open from 5:00-7:00.  We invite our 2nd grade parents to the 2nd grade performance at 7:00 in the cafeteria.  It is going to be a great evening!

We are closing in on the end of registration for our first annual Late Night Leopard Camp Out.  The last day to register is March 23. The Camp Out committee is hosting a drawing for $25 in Camp Store cash for all those families registered.  The first drawing will be tomorrow, March 9, at the end of the school day and we will announce the winners before dismissal.  The second drawing will be on March 23 during morning announcements. It is not too late to get in tomorrow's drawing!  Click here  to register now.  

Next week is Spring Break.  I know I will be taking this time to recharge as we enter the busy months of April and May.   I hope everyone has a safe, relaxing, and fun spring break! 
With a Full HeART,
Lacey Moser

Foundation for Lovejoy Schools
Denim and Diamonds - Lone Starry Night
Through your generosity and support, the Foundation for Lovejoy Schools awarded grants totaling $451,100 to teachers for use in their classrooms this year. The Foundation is funded primarily from Annual Appeal and the Denim and Diamonds (D&D) Gala and Auction. The Foundation's goal this year is to cover D&D costs with sponsorships prior to the night of the event so all monies spent at the event go directly to fund classroom grants.
The Foundation for Lovejoy Schools will host its 12th annual Denim and Diamonds Gala and Auction on Saturday, April 7, 2018, at the Marriott at Legacy Town Center in Plano. This year's theme is a Lone Starry Night. Foundation for Lovejoy Schools Chair, Carrie McClure and Co-Chair, Aimee Peay welcome you to a night featuring dinner, entertainment and live auctions.

  • Arcade Game Table - Designed like original arcade table from the 80s. Table can be customized, featuring officially licensed graphics of favorite College, Pro Team, etc. - value $4,400
Online Auction Results
The Foundation for Lovejoy Schools would like to thank everyone who participated in the 2018 Online Auction. The auction raised over $30,000. Thanks to your support, these funds will be used towards the mission of providing innovative classroom grants to benefit the students of Lovejoy ISD.
If you did not get a chance to purchase a ticket to the K-4 Spring Fling Beach Bash Socials, it is not too late. There will be a sign-up sheet at each campus office for you to purchase a ticket for your student to attend their grade-level party.
The success of this auction would not have been possible without the staff of Lovejoy. The campuses and teachers so graciously donated over 200 experiences for your students and your family.

Raffle tickets are $100. Only 500 tickets will be sold. A drawing will be held for each item, giving each ticket a chance to win one of these prizes.
