May 2022 PTA Newsletter

Can you believe we only have one more week left of the 2021-22 school year? As we close out the school year, we want to take a moment to thank all of our parents, teachers, and volunteers for an amazing year. We didn't know how the school year looked when we started in August, but it was great to all be back together in January. Because of this community's fundraising and volunteer efforts, we were able to offer an action-packed year filled with many exciting events. As you reflect on this past year, please know that you made a difference and you were a big part in making this year a great and memorable year. We look forward to working with you to make next year another unforgettable year. This will be our last PTA newsletter until we return and resume in August for the 2022-23 school year. Until then, please have a happy and safe summer!

Mark your calendars!

April & May 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. 

Chalking the Sidewalk

Thank you to all the Liscano families who spent a Sunday afternoon chalking the sidewalk for our teachers and staff! There were some wonderful messages and drawings that we hope brightened teachers' and staffs' day!

Donuts & Coffee Bar

We kicked off Teacher Appreciation Week with a donut and coffee bar this week! Thank you to the local Dunkin' donuts coffee company on Preston Road for donating the coffee so that our teachers and staff could enjoy a coffee break.

Creative Door Decorations

We have some talented parents! Thank you to all the parents and families that spent time decorating teacher and staff doors for Teacher Appreciation Week! We hope these decorated doors brought joy to those entering the classroom this week.

Lunch is served!
