Hello Lovejoy Families!
Happy Valentine's Day from your Lovejoy Elementary School PTO! We hope that you enjoy this special day and are able to tell your loved ones just how special they are to you. Our LES PTO Executive Board sends thanks and love to each one of you for all of your support.
This month, our hospitality department will treat our LES staff to a Valentine's Day Luncheon from McAllisters on Thursday, February 11th. Your donations make lunches like these possible, so THANK YOU! We hope our LES teachers, staff, students and our members enjoy the long weekend and break from school this month.
Thank you for attending our general member meeting on February 1st where we discussed updates to spring programs. The LES PTO is excited to have the opportunity to assist Lovejoy Elementary School in purchasing their new research-based social-emotional curriculum! Be on the lookout for more updates about this exciting program and how your LES PTO is partnering with LES to continue to enrich the lives of every student at LES.
Also at our general meeting, we passed budget amendments to provide our hospitality and room representatives with more funds for staff luncheons, Teacher Appreciation Week, and the end of the year parties. In addition, we formed our 2020-21 Budget Review, LES Scholarship, and Executive Board Nominating Committees. If you are interested in a position on our LES PTO Executive Board, please reach out to the nominating committee (see below in newsletter) or myself. We would LOVE to have you join our team! Finally, our membership department formed our Parent/Teacher Recognition Committee. Please see further down in our newsletter for information on how you can nominate a deserving member of our LES community for a LES PTO recognition award. The awards will tentatively be presented in May.
Have a wonderful February. Spring is just around the corner...
