YEARBOOK WELL WISH:
If you want to give your child a congratulatory message or praise for his/her accomplishments this school year, time is running out. If you are unsure of what a well wish is, your child’s teacher will be more than happy to explain it to you or show you an example of one. The deadline is Monday, March 6. The cost is $15 per/section on the grid; half-of-page wish is $50, whole-page wish is $100. This cost helps to defray the cost of the yearbook.
WESTERN-ROUND-UP DINNER/AUCTION, Saturday March 25:
Continue to look in those closets and garages to find those forgotten treasures of unused items to donate for our auction. We could use more theme oriented baskets i.e., “a fun in the sun basket” with toys such as a Frisbee, soccer/basket ball, jump rope, sidewalk chalk, and bubbles. A “family night” basket with board games or cards such as “Uno or Old Maid,” gift cards for movie tickets, etc. How about a “quiet-time” basket for children with different coloring/sticker books with popular cartons such as Winnie the Pooh, Power Rangers, The Disney Princesses, crayons, markers, color pencils? Brainstorm with families in your child(ren)’s class to come up with a class-themed basket. Time is fast approaching.
If you have a small business, why not advertise it in the auction booklet? Perhaps the company you work for provides a service that could be advertised as well. Let them know that in the past two years, nearly three hundred people have attended this fundraiser. It is inexpensive and a great way to let others know about your business or service that your company provides. Please see Mrs. Stump or Mrs. Bland for an advertisement, sponsorship, or solicitation letter.
An order form for dinner tickets is attached to this newsletter. Families who are currently enrolled will receive free tickets for their immediate family members and may purchase additional tickets as needed. However, everyone will need to turn the form in so that we can get an approximation of how many people will be in attendance.
The dessert sheet is attached. There will be an array of delicious dishes to choose from lumpia, baked foods, soda, and more! If you preorder, you will get more for your money!
Raffle tickets have already gone home with students and many of you have come back for more! Remember to buy for yourself and “sell, sell, sell” to family members, friends, and co-workers! First prize is $800 CASH!!!! Second prize is Sony laptop!!!! Third prize is $200 CASH!!!! All monies will benefit the children of Lea’s; whether it’s used for classroom supplies, playground improvements, computer software, or media, etc. If you would like more raffle tickets, please see Ms. Ho. Remember to GO “GREEN” and REUSE order envelopes for more tickets.
We are truly blessed to have parents who whole-heartedly support your children’s school continually.
God’s blessings and protection to you always!
