We're excited to announce that we've reached our first milestone of $10,000 in our Give and Give Back fundraiser. That means your kids get PAJAMA DAY tomorrow!
But we still have more to go to get to our goal of $30,000. We can do it with your help!
So CLICK HERE to donate today. Every dollar helps, and every dollar adds up.
Share the link with friends, family and neighbors! (P.S. They can write checks, too, made payable to L-H PTO.)
Don't forget about matching donations! Not sure if your company is on the list? Reach out to the PTO and we can help you get them set up!

Learn About Standardized Testing This Wednesday; Plus PTO Update
Join us this Wednesday, April 26, from 8:45 - 10:15 am, to learn about New Jersey standards and standardized testing. Mr. Carlin will discuss the development of standards and state assessments.
This workshop is designed to orient parents to how grade-level standards are developed and assessed at the State level. Participants will engage in an exploration and orientation of State standards and the NLSLA ( New Jersey Student Learning Assessment) that will be administered for students in Grades 3-5 this May.

Your PTO Dollars at Work
We hope all of you had the opportunity to check out our amazingly talented fourth- and fifth-graders this weekend in their performance of Seussical. They all worked so hard, and we couldn't be more proud of them!
These productions only happen with a LOT of hard work from kids and parents alike. And we also rely on PTO money to help pay for the rights to the show, hiring a director, paying for costumes, programs, hallway decorations, props, etc.
Your donations to our school help us continue our amazing theater program!
