Lucky's Fun Run
On Wednesday, Lucky's Fun Run Fundraising campaign will begin with a short pep rally for students. Students will come home with information about collecting pledges and with a link to create their own video link.
Donations collected will be used to purchase books, technology, and supplies for our school. Please help your child collect pledges as this is our major fundraiser of the year.
We need volunteers for the big day. Please use this link to sign up to volunteer for this event.
Thank you! Thank you!
We are so thankful for each and every person who has already submitted membership envelopes, volunteered to help with events, joined the copy crew, signed up for Den Dads, and much much more. Your willingness to participate makes a huge difference.
Membership envelopes are available at the PTO desk and can be returned to your child's teacher or the main office.
Enrichment activities are still enrolling...
Soccer Shots, Kidz Art, and Chess Club began last week but are still enrolling for this semester. These private companies provide classes at our school for a fee and are not sponsored by the PTO.
Out next PTO meeting will be on Tuesday, September 27th at 6:30 pm in the Media Center. We will review the annual PTO budget and look at events and chairperson roles for the year as well as hear more about planning for Fun Run. Childcare is provided for the hour long meeting by a CMS employee. We look forward to seeing you there.
Last Chance for Chess Club
Tuesday morning chess club registration is ending soon. The club is organized through Charlotte Chess Center. Several additional spots remain. Please register on www.charlottechesscenter.org as soon as possible.
Copy Volunteers Needed
Again this year, the PTO will coordinate volunteers to make copies for teachers. This service allows teachers to spend more time planning for excellent instruction during the school day. We need 4 more volunteers that are willing to come in for about one hour once a week to make copies. Training and Support is provided. Please contact Jessica Halsey at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in becoming part of this helpful crew.
Tuesday evening is Back to School Curriculum Night. PTO envelopes have been given to teachers to be sent home. Volunteers ill be available at the PTO desk to collect envelopes and answer questions about our organization. Thank you for your continued support.
Join the PTO
Membership envelopes will be sent home with students this week. Please look for events listed on the front of these envelopes and check off any areas you are interested in helping with. Membership dues can be given in cash or by checks made out to Lansdowne PTO. Envelopes can be returned to your child's classroom teacher or to the main office.
Each month the PTO sponsors a fundraising night at Chick-fil-A in the Arboretum from 3-8 pm. A percentage of the total sales from the evening is returned back to the school to purchase books for the Media Center and classrooms.
Show Your Colors!
Thursday is Panthers Day! Wear your favorite gear or colors to support our Carolina Panthers as they go into their first game of the season. Friday, come dressed in your favorite college gear or colors for College Day!
We have been politely asked by the Lansdowne residents to be cautious about obeying speed limits and not blocking driveways or intersections while waiting to drop off or pick up students. Thank you for your thoughtfulness while driving and waiting in the neighborhood.
