Need clothes donation for health room

With the rainy weather, kids are coming into the health room for a change of clothes and we are running out of pants for KG and First Graders. Please consider donating any old sweatpants with elastic and in neutral colors (ages 5 to 9) which can be used in the health room. We have enough tops/t-shirts, under wears, socks, and jackets. Thank you.

Pictures needed for bulletin board

Any pictures of your child(ren) promoting an active lifestyle or participating in sports is wanted for our bulletin board. Please print them out for your son or daughter to bring during their next scheduled PE, or you can email the pictures to me at kcoe@lwsd.org if that would be more convenient. We are trying to show all of the different ways that our amazing students stay physically active and healthy, so help us fill our bulletin board with pictures showing how this is happening in our community. Thanks for all of your support in keeping your kids healthy and physically active!
