February Thoughts
A word from your PTSA presidents

Roses are red, violets are blue- happiest of Februarys from the PTSA to you!

Isn't it funny/crazy how quickly 2018 is going- how is it already February?! Speaking of February, did you know that February frequently occurs on lists of the most commonly misspelled words in the English language? Also, here in the US, February is National Pet Dental Health and Hot Breakfast month- you're welcome!

With that being said, after your hot breakfast on Monday February 5th, come down early to school with your kiddos (and wear red!) and help us waive some signs as we promote vote YES for our schools.  Is your ballot in yet?  We will be in the front of the school and would love any and all support.

Again, we are truly blessed to continue to be your PTSA co-presidents and if you or anyone you know is interested in joining or becoming a more active part of the PTSA, we would love to speak with you!

Sign Waving Brigade
Volunteers Needed

Come show your support for the upcoming LWSD bond and levies on January 29 and February 5. This will raise awareness, generate excitement, and show the power of our numbers as we come out in force to support the bond and levies!

We will be waving signs before school from 8:15-9:00AM in front of the school, at the corner of State and 68th and at the corner of 6th and 68th. Kids are welcome and encouraged with an adult. We will have some signs available at the event or your child can make a sign. Sign up here to let us know you're coming or just show up.  Most importantly, WEAR RED!

Need more information about the LWSD Bond and Levies? Visit  vote4lwsdkids.org or LWSD.

Don't forget to wear something RED and vote YES by February 13 for the LWSD Bond and 2 LWSD Levies.
