Pumpkin Night
Welcome back to school HLES parents!
The PTA is off to a swift start planning for the Leopard Ramble, our annual
fundraiser that every student at HLES participates in on October 17th. We
need PLENTY of help with Ramble as well as a co-chair, so if you are
interested in volunteering, send me an email! Also upcoming is Pumpkin
Night the week after Ramble and we need volunteers at that event as
well. Parents and family members with young children have plenty of
opportunities to help out throughout the year, as well as working
parents. We do have two open chair positions. The first is Parent Education
(putting together articles for the newsletter and Facebook page, and possibly
organizing educational sessions for topics that interest parents i.e. bullying,
handling social networking, etc.). The second open chair position is to
welcome new families to HLES.
If you are able to volunteer on a Friday, but cannot commit to every Friday,
our PTA provides popcorn for each child in every class that has perfect
attendance for the week. This is VERY popular with the kids!
Finally, if you have not already joined the PTA, please do so. Membership
forms should be coming home soon, as well as the Leopard Ramble
information.
Looking forward to making it a great year for our students, parents and staff!
