We can't believe it's March! The time is just going to continue to fly by with all the upcoming PTA events in the months ahead. Spring is in sight and Spring Break is this week, which means there's no school March 7-11. All of our students, teachers and staff are very deserving of a well-earned break after having worked so hard, so we hope everyone has a safe and relaxing time this week! 

Mark your calendars!

March 7-11: No school (Spring Break)

March 15 - March 24: Liscano Fun Run boosterthon fundraiser

March 23: Liscano Spirit Day at Chick-fil-A [flyer]

April 5: Liscano Spirit Night at Spring Creek BBQ

May 18: Liscano Spirit Night with Kona Ice

Liscano Fun Run - registration open

We're kicking off our annual Liscano Fun Run boosterthon fundraiser this month! Our goal is to raise $30,000 for items that we need for the school. Watch this short video from Principal Salomon about why fundraising this year is so important. We would be so grateful for your support. Registration starts today, so visit mybooster.com to sign up! Donating starts March 8 with the fundraiser kick-off on March 15, and event day on March 24.

Our PTA Board needs YOU next year!

Love our school, teachers and staff? Want to get more involved and make an impact on students' lives? We're planning for next year's Liscano Elementary PTA board and we need your help! If you're interested in joining us, click here to read more about each role and complete the interest form to let us know you're interested by Friday, April 1.

The PTA's objective is to provide our school with support, funds, resources, and services that will maximize the education of every child and benefit the school! The PTA plans and fulfills a number of items and events such as school gifts (playground shade cover, technology, library books), educational programs and assemblies, Diverse Abilities Day, book fair, spring carnival, teacher and staff appreciation, spirit wear, spirit nights, Watch DOGS, and classroom parties to name a few. Without the PTA, these programs would no longer be available to our students.

Membership raffle winner

Congratulations to Bethanne Kanzler, winner of our February membership raffle and recipient of a $25 gift card. To show our appreciation, all PTA members including those who joined in the month of February were entered into a drawing for a $25 gift card at the end of February.

Welcome Back award

We received the "Welcome Back" award for onboarding 10 new members or more in January! 👏 Thank you to all who joined in the month of January. Our goal in March is to recruit 17 new members so that we can earn the "Lucky Leprechaun" award. Please encourage someone who's not already a PTA member to join by visiting our website

February PTA Highlights

A heartfelt thanks to all of our PTA members who have volunteered this past month for numerous events! We would not be able to provide the experiences to our teachers, staff, and students without your support. 

Valentine's Day Class Parties

Students were treated to a short story and time crafting "Warm and Fuzzies" to give and keep for Valentine's Day. Thank you to all the Room Parents who helped read stories and craft with the students. 

Soups for the Super Bowl

Teachers and staff were treated to a Super Bowl luncheon of soups and football-themed appetizers that paired well with soups. Thank you to all the volunteers who donated items for this event!

Spring Book Fair

Another successful Book Fair thanks in big part to all the purchases made and volunteers who helped support this event! We hope all the students had an opportunity to build their home libraries and further their love of reading!

Thank you Mrs. Briggs!

Members of the PTA Board personally donated gifts to wish former Assistant Principal Briggs the very best in her new role with her new staff and campus as Principal Briggs at Robertson Elementary.

Read Across America Week

Some of our Book Fair volunteers posed with Rowdy and former Dallas Cowboys player, George Teague, who visited Liscano for schoolwide read time (drop everything and read) during Read Across America Week.

Open House

We had a fun-filled evening during Liscano's Open House! Thank you to all the volunteers who helped during the event with the Book Fair, membership table, and spirit wear table! 

Liscano Spirit Days & Nights!

Thank you for continuing to support Liscano Spirit Days and Nights at local community restaurants. These school fundraisers strengthen the bonds between schools, families, and the community, all while bringing in essential funds to help supplement the school's budget for things like enrichment programs and hospitality events to support our wonderful teachers, staff and students.

Save the date for our next Liscano Spirit Day at Chick-fil-A on March 23, and Liscano Spirit Nights at Spring Creek BBQ on April 5 and Kona Ice on May 18!
