With only one meeting to follow in the 2017-18 school year, our May meeting focused on several end of the year events and open board positions for next year. Be sure to attend our LAST meeting of 2017-18 June 5th at 6:30 in the FRES library. We will be holding board elections and setting goals for 2018-19.
Open Board Positions
At least one board member will be retiring this year, and all board positions are open to new candidates every year. (Board members must be re-elected annually.) Consider getting involved! Much of the Board’s work is done outside of meetings, and we are working hard to introduce changes that shape meetings and activities to suit all of our participants. Bring your ideas and energy to make 2018-19 the best year ever.
You do not have to be present at elections to run for a board position. Simply let a current board member know which office you would like to run for, and we will put your name on the ballot.
LCS Book Fair
The PTO has located a Therapy Dog for the Paws to Read Book Fair on 5/10. We will have a dog available to say hello to the children before dismissal on 5/10 and another dog available to meet and read with from 4-7 during our evening event. Representatives from Lyndeborough Fire, Police, and EMT will also be on hand to read with children and talk about their roles in the community.
Come on out, browse the books, say hello, and meet our new friend Hairy the therapy dog!
The fair will also be open during the day on Wednesday and Thursday from 1:30-3:00, or shop online in our webstore.
Celebration of Learning
Preparations for the Celebration of Learning are nearly complete. Join us for a basket raffle with close to twenty baskets up for grabs at the event! Tickets are available during the day of 5/17 at the FRES front office, and during the Celebration of Learning event. The raffle is held during the Celebration, so come out, see what the kids have been up to all year long, and take home a beautiful prize basket.
We will also be holding our Thank You Pasta Dinner during the Celebration. To thank you for your support with all of our events this year, the PTO is providing a free pasta dinner in the FRES Cafe to all of the families attending the Celebration of Learning event. Take a night off from cooking on us!
Our very last event of the year is right around the corner! We are taking volunteers for a host of fun stations during our Field Day on June 15. Learn more about the event here.
A big thank you to everyone who popped popcorn during state testing in April. The kids really do love receiving a special treat when they are done with the tests! We’ll be popping again Monday-Wednesday-Friday May 7-11. Check the signup genius to volunteer.
Teachers and Staff were thrilled with the delicious deliveries during Teacher Appreciation week. Thank you to everyone who cooked, prepped, cleaned, and made our teachers feel extra-special this year.
