PTA News for the week of August 31,  2015 

 The school and PTA are off to a great start. Thank you to everyone who have volunteered or had questions about what PTA does for your child's school. Just as a reminder, if you would like to volunteer on any of the committees PTA offers at LES you need to become a PTA member. If you volunteer for any activities at the school you will need to register with WSFCS System. (A link is provided below)

The purpose of your PTA is to support the faculty, students and parents. The Executive Board has been busy preparing events and activities for the 2015-2016 school year. Our goal is to make every child's potential a reality by empowering them with knowledge to be successful.
 
You can help the success of the LES students through your personal, community and business support. There will be opportunities throughout the school in which you can participate. Your knowledge, talents and time are greatly appreciated.  It's easy to get started! The best place to start is signing up as a volunteer with the WSFCS system. Once you are signed up the possibilities are endless. Click HERE to get started.
 
Our first PTA General Meeting will be held on September 15th at 6:30pm in the auditorium. This will be in conjunction with Curriculum Night. At our first meeting you will be able to meet the board members, find a committee that you can use your talents, be introduced to some of the events scheduled for the school year and review and approve the 2015-2016 LES PTA budget.
 
 If you were unable to purchase LES spirit wear during open house there is still time. Order forms will go home soon and an order will be placed. PTA would love to see students showing spirit in the festive spirit wear. Prices vary due to shirt type and size. LES will accept cash or checks made out to LES PTA.
 
You can also become a LES PTA member for $5. In the past some companies have given discounts for PTA members, i.e. Staples. You can also register on line at http://www.pta.org/members/
