Although we are starting this school year much differently than we had imagined, we are excited about this new year of learning. More than ever, your PTA is committed to supporting the mission and vision of Level Creek Elementary School (LCES) in a variety of ways. Even though we won’t physically be in the classroom at the start of this new school year, we just wanted to update you on a few things.
Immediately, we’re excited to provide our teachers with $100 back to school grants to help with any new supplies or materials they might need for their digital classrooms. We had envisioned a fall celebration for students and families but feel those funds could go further if given to our teachers to apply directly to their digital classrooms. The PTA will also be providing lunch to all of the teachers and staff during their pre-planning.
Through your generous support this past year, the LCES PTA was also able to:
- Raise $675 from carnation sales in February to donate to the North Gwinnett Co-op.
Purchase 30 new Chromebooks to allow classes to all work on a computer at once without having to reserve lab time.
Fund more than $6,000 in teacher grants.
10 STEM games per Kindergarten class (70 games total)
Guided reading books for classrooms
Various supplies for project-based learning
Upgrade stage lights and sound system in the cafeteria for school productions.
Provide more than $14,000 in new PE equipment and technology; many of these have not been replaced since the inception of the school in 2004.
We heard great things about our LCES PTA membership levels offered last year. However, as we start this very different year in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the LCES PTA will only offer one membership level at $10.00. With your membership, students in your household will receive the new 2020-2021 spirit stick, along with coupons and discounts from participating local merchants. Also, be on the lookout for new spirit wear in the coming weeks including masks. All Spirit Wear will be sold online this year and shipped directly to you!
As always, the LCES PTA is run 100 percent by volunteers and funded through fundraisers and donations. We hope you’ll consider joining the LCES PTA for the 2020-2021 school year. To join, visit MyPaymentsPlus.
We still have several committee chair positions open if you are interested in serving with the PTA this year! Please email email@example.com to inquire about open positions.
Be sure to become a PTA member this year to stay in the loop with all of the PTA happenings and events!
We really appreciate your support!
Your PTA presidents,
Katie LeCraw and Rachel DiAntonio
