Art Collaboration With Visual Arts Center Starts This Week; Volunteers Needed!
Beginning on Wednesday, May 3 and continuing through Friday, May 19, art classes will be led by artist and art therapist Megan Tuttle, in conjunction with Ms.Yospin and parent volunteers.
This PTO-sponsored program utilizes the visual arts to support the social emotional wellness of our student community -- we know that using art as a tool for expression can help to identify, manage, and cope with various sources of stress and anxiety.
If you want to come volunteer for your child's class, please click here.

Want to Get More Involved at L-H? We Need Some PTO Board Members for Next Year!
We're already planning ahead for next year, and we have a few positions open on the Executive PTO Board. Specifically, we're looking for the following positions:
-- Co-VP’s (this is a 2-year commitment, as this position moves to president the following year)
-- Assistant Webmaster (updates the PTO website)

The Executive Board meets once a month, usually for about an hour, in the morning at school.

We know that they've been banned in local stores, but if you happen to have any grocery-store-sized plastic bags at home, they can use them in the STEAM lab!
Congrats to Our Fifth-Graders! Bake Sale Raises $1,000!
Thank you to everyone who helped make our 5th-grade bake sale a huge success. They were able to raise $1,000 to support GRACE and Bridges. We're so proud of them, and grateful to you for your support!
Your PTO Dollars at Work
We're excited to have the Visual Arts Center come to L-H starting this week to work with our students. This program encourages students to feel a sense of freedom and self-discovery in a school environment, where there is no such thing as a “bad” emotion, and works to help students with regulating stress, particularly during testing season.
We can't wait to see what your students create!
This program is possible because of your donations to the PTO.
