PTO Meeting…Fun Night

Our next PTO meeting is October 21st. A flyer with information about the meeting is in today’s Monday folder.

Last week, volunteer forms went home to families. We need your help on Fun Night. Please return these as soon as you can. If you are helping on Fun Night, you will need to fill out a volunteer application online before you can help. You can access this application by going to lps.org and click on “Be a Volunteer”.

LPS’s Bubba’s Closet

If your elementary-aged children have outgrown their winter coats, jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts or jeans, please consider dropping off those gently used clothes at any Hanger’s Cleaners throughout the month of October: from Wednesday, Oct. 1, through Friday, Oct. 31– so that other children might keep warm this winter.

Then, on Saturday, Nov. 15, those clothes will be available to the community’s children at the annual Bubba’s Closet event: 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. at McPhee Elementary School, 820 Goodhue Blvd. (820 S. 15th St.) Any elementary student, accompanied by an adult, may come and choose appropriate items of clothing to adopt and use – for free. There are no income requirements. Sacks will be provided by Lincoln Public Schools.

Please drop off your donated winter clothes at Hanger’s Cleaners located at: 2525 Pine Lake Road, 2655 S. 70th St., 1550 Coddington, or 2101 G St. All clothes will be cleaned by Hanger’s at no charge, and sorted by Lincoln Public Schools elementary principals, who sponsor this annual event.

Bubba’s Closet is one of the many American Education Week activities planned in LPS.

 

 

Bicycle Safety

We have had an unusual number of bicycle accidents during the first quarter of this year at LPS. Please remind your children of the safety precautions for riding bicycles.

 

WEAR A HELMET while riding your bike.

STOP at every intersection!  Make eye contact with drivers to make sure they have seen you before entering the traffic area.  Also, be aware of cars leaving and entering driveways.

LOOK in all directions before entering a crosswalk with the light.

WALK your bike through the intersection.

TRAFFIC LAWS apply to bike riders.  Bike riders are operating a moving vehicle.  All traffic laws should be strictly followed.

 

Sincerely,

Scott Schwartz, Principal
