“Bad Moms” Outing, Dec. 7th

The moms of the LES PTO cordially invite all Moms, Mom Surrogates, Grandoms and Moms-To-Be to break the rules and go out on a school night to a moms-only* screening of a Bad Moms Christmas. We have the whole theater to ourselves. Tickets are limited and must be paid for in advance. Grab another mom friend out of her kitchen and away from cooking chicken nuggets and come out for a laugh. You deserve it! Please help us spread the word to your Mom networks so we can get a full house.

**You don’t have to be a bad mom to laugh like a mother but for those whose sensibilities may be offended by the debauchery and/or want to make an offering in advance to absolve you of your sins, we will be passing around a swear jar. Donations are completely voluntary but suggested contribution is $1. The jar will be handed right over to Womanspace, the Lawrence non-profit serving victims of domestic violence.
*A dads-only night out is currently being planned. If you have any suggestions or would like to nominate your child’s father to coordinate it, please email lespto40@gmail.com. Maybe just wait a few days to tell him, until after he recovers from being in charge of the kids on December 7.

Any questions or concerns, please contact Tina Settimi.

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.
