Help your children share this with friends, family and neighbors! (PS They can write checks, too, made payable to L-H PTO.)
And remember,many companies will match donations, so take that extra few minutes to complete your company’s process. Or, to reach out to us at the PTO, and we can help you get your corporation set up for matching! Matching donations go a long way towards helping the PTO reach its fundraising goals.
Below are pictures of our L-H students in GIVING action, working selflessly to bless others and show appreciation to the Summit Police Department, Neighborhood House, Overlook Auxiliary, Family Promise, and Sage Eldercare.

Earth Day Volunteers Still Needed for a Few Classrooms
The Green in the Classroom initiative has created grade-specific lessons to be taught to our kids in preparation for Earth Day on Friday, April 21.
We're looking for 2 volunteers from each class to come in and teach these lessons. All lessons have already been created; you'd just pick up the printout, follow along, and teach the class. Lessons are designed to be short, and teachers have blocked out 30 minutes per class.
We still need volunteers to fill slots in the following grades:
1 slot open for 1st Grade
1 slot open for 2nd Grade
2 slots open for 3rd Grade
4 slots open for 4th Grade
If you'd like to help out, you can sign up here. Please pay close attention to which class you are signing up for, as different teachers have selected different time slots!
Lessons by grade are:
1st Grade - Lesson on Growing Food From Seeds and PDF with Worksheets
2nd Grade - Lesson and PPT for Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Lesson
3rd Grade - Lesson and Worksheet for Reusable Energy Lesson
4th Grade - Lesson on Climate Change
5th Grade - Lesson on Composting

Your PTO Dollars at Work
Last week we held a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with all of the students to officially inaugurate the new playground equipment installed earlier this year. The students were especially blown away by the giant scissors used to cut the ribbon!
