The Holiday Boutique, held Dec. 8-11 during recess, gives students the opportunity to shop for family members. Items range in price from 25 cents to $6. ONLY those students who bring in money on their assigned day will be allowed to shop. Due to the limited time students have to make purchases, we are requesting parents send in filled out gift tags for each person your student is shopping for. Additional information and money envelopes were sent home Nov. 24-25. *Volunteers are needed to assist students. Please contact Lora Darrah at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help or sign up online http://bit.ly/1t8Jclw

LCE Wishing trees
When you stop in for fall teacher conferences, you will see two "Wishing Trees" in the front lobby. Several teachers in our building are in need of supplies to enrich our students' learning environment. Please consider taking a leaf or apple, or two, and donating the supplies listed on each die cut.
We ask that all donations be dropped off in the marked tote in the office no later than Monday, Nov. 24.
