I want to start by reminding everyone that there is no school next Friday, April 19th as our teachers take part in important professional development. We will hold our spring Roadie Work Day the next day on Saturday, April 20th to prepare for Lee Olympics, which will take place the following Friday, April 26th. We will be planting trees and native plants, repairing our track after the recent rains, installing the eagerly anticipated GAGA Pit and working on other campus improvement projects. Things kick off at 9:00 that morning and we can use all the assistance we can get. We hope to see you next Saturday!
Tonight – Join us for a free screening of Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse in the cafeteria starting at 6:30. The screening is presented by LEAP (Lee Equity in Action Programming) and pizza will be provided by Amigos de Russell Lee. Everyone is invited to bring a potluck dish as well as blankets and pillows to relax and watch this exciting movie!
Lastly, next Tuesday night is our monthly PTA Meeting where we will be voting on next year’s PTA Executive Board. The meeting will begin at 7:00 and childcare will be provided. I want to share the following message from the The PTA Nomination Committee – We would like to thank everyone who expressed interest in being on the slate to serve on the PTA Board next year.
