Fundraiser Update--Wednesday

Wow! We hit our first challenge goal and raised $10,000 - - thank you to all who contributed! Our students earned the honor of wearing crazy hair and socks to school this Friday, September 1. It is also College Colors Day so our students will surely stand out. 

Our next challenge is to hit $15,000 by Thursday night and I'm confident we can do it.  When students hit that goal, they will be allowed to wear hats to school on Tuesday, September 5.. 

This Friday, September 1 we will be distributing our first round of incentive prizes to students who have raised over $50 (Scholastic Bucks, front row seating, limo rides, elite wall). The details of these incentives can be found on the fundraiser documents that your student brought home or electronically here. There will be other opportunities to receive these. This is just our first round of distribution.  

Thank you again for your support with Read Books 2 Raise Bucks: The more YOU give, the more THEY get!

Donations can be sent in via cash/check or via credit/debit using

Read Books 2 Raise Bucks Update

Thank you for a great kick off to our Read Books 2 Raise Bucks Fundraiser. Yesterday we issued some challenges to the students.

To get at least one donation and approximately 200 of our students did just that.

To raise $10,000 by Wednesday at dismissal and we are more than half way to that goal.

Please help us get the rest of the way by assisting your student in getting another donation tonight. If we reach this $10,000 mini-goal, the students get to wear crazy hair and socks to school on Friday.

Thank you for supporting LCE. We are on our way to hitting our $50,000 goal!

Medications at School

Attention Parents:

If your child will need to take medication at school, the district medication policy must be followed. Medications should be in the original container with the student's name and instructions for administration on the label. A medication permission form must be completed by the parent and signed by the child's doctor in order for any medication to be given at school. These forms are available in the health room.

Again, all medications must be in the original container.

All student medications are kept and administered in the health room, unless specified in writing by a physician and the parent after talking with the nurse. Medicines should be brought straight to the health room upon arrival to school.

Thank you for your cooperation!
