Lawrenceville St. Baldicks Event, Mar. 10th

Support Mr. Berry and Mr. Beal as they shave their heads to help kids with cancer! On Saturday March 10th, from 11:00am-4:30pm, the Lawrenceville St. Baldrick’s Event will be happening at Amalfi’s (146 Lawrenceville-Pennington Road)! This is the ELEVENTH year that this event has occurred in Lawrenceville, and over that course of time, we have raised over $1.1 million dollars! St. Baldrick’s mission is to CONQUER CHILDHOOD CANCER, and every dollar that is raised goes towards the best cancer research in the country! You can learn more about St. Baldricks at www.stbaldricks.org.
There are THREE ways you can help support this awesome event!
1. BECOME A SHAVEE!
  • If your son/daughter, or any other family members would like to become a shavee, they need to go to the LES/Lester’s Dragon’s webpage: https://www.stbaldricks.org/teams/mypage/116925/2018
  • Click on “Join Us”, then “I need to create a new account” (unless you have already been a shavee in the past), and follow the instructions to get started
  • All the money you raise will go towards your personal goal AND the LES/Lester’s Dragon team fundraising goal.
  • On the day of the event, you’ll be assigned a specific time for your shave.
2. MAKE A DONATION
3. COME TO THE EVENT!
  • Come and cheer on the LES/Lester’s Dragons as they brave the shave!!!!
  • There is great food/drink all day long – live music – face painting – photo booths, and more! It will be fun for kids and adults – PLUS – you get to see all the shavee’s ROCK THE BALD!
Any questions? Email Mr. Berry or Mr. Beal anytime. We are both so excited to see how many LES students sign up to join us in BRAVING THE SHAVE and ROCKING THE BALD on Saturday March 10th!

Special Education Services Feedback Needed

The Special Education Parent Advisory Committee (SEPAC) is reaching out to the LTPS community to participate in a short survey (below) to help us gather valuable feedback related to special services within the Lawrence schools. As a newly-formed organization made up of LTPS parents, our primary goal is to better understand and serve the needs of families in Lawrence Township who have special needs children. This survey is designed to help us achieve our goal. The survey is endorsed by the school district, the results are anonymous and will come directly to the SEPAC.

We would appreciate all parents who have children receiving special education services, or parents who believe their children need special services, to participate in this brief survey. Your voice, your feedback is important. Together we can make a difference! If you have any questions, please contact us at sepacltps@gmail.com.

Take a Book, Leave a Book Exchange box

The “Little Library Box” is now installed in the LES Garden and functions as a self-serve free book exchange. You are welcome to take a book or return a book at your leisure. Special thanks to The Collins Family for installing our new Little Library Box in the garden during the Thanksgiving holiday. The library box was purchased to honor Mrs. Karen Hall, who retired from LES after 27 years old service. Cub Scouts Brayden and Caleb and Girl Scout Avery assisted with the installation under the direction of their father, Pete Collins. In addition, they donated 11 books to help start our collection. Families are invited to read a book or two while visiting the garden.
