From the Principal

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Words do not begin to express my gratitude for your support of our BoosterThon Fundraiser. This has been a great experience for our students as they learned about community and giving back. This program taught our them about fitness, character, and leadership and culminated in a wonderful fun run that I know they will never forget! For those of you that joined us for the fun run, I know you could feel and see the excitement, enthusiasm, and enjoyment in the air. This is what we experienced every day for eight days as the BoosterThon team worked with our students and teachers and became a part of our LES family. While they will be leaving our campus, I am convinced that the spirit of this program will live on for many days to come.

Calling All Dads!

LES is looking for Dads and their kids to take part in a quick, before-school breakfast and a 45-minute program on fatherhood and family topics. You’ll take away some great tips and resources to help you be the best Dad you can be, and you’ll strengthen the relationship with your kids at the same time.
 
Mr. Bill Oden from the KCSD will lead this program.  For more information please visit the main website for All Pro Dad at http://www.allprodad.com/ and the chapter website is http://www.allprodad.com/4050.

Our first meeting was March 23 but if you missed it, there will be another on April 27 beginning at 7:30.  It's FUN and FREE!  Here are some photos from that first meeting.  Thanks to all our wonderful dads that came to this meeting!  We hope to see more of you next month!

Lunch Buddies Needed!

·        Are you interested in a free school lunch?

·        Do you love young people?

·        Do you have 30 minutes a month you could spare?

If you answered “yes” to these questions, then you would make a great lunch buddy!  Lunch buddies commit to eating lunch with and establishing a relationship with a selected student.  We ask that you commit to one day per month, but of course you are free to eat with your lunch buddy more often than that if you wish.   Our goal is to help pair students with another meaningful adult.  If you are interested, contact Dr. Lloyd - 438-8000.  We need YOU!
