Our Children are Thriving at LES!
As parents, family, and community members we know how remarkable Leverett Elementary School is, and how lucky we are to have access to such an excellent public school. At LES our children are truly seen and supported by dedicated teachers and staff. In such a small school setting, each one of our children are loved and uniquely nurtured.
Small School = No-frills Budget.
The LES community has long prided itself on providing an exceptional education despite modest resources. It's thrilling that the school budget was passed at this year's Town Meeting -- huge thanks to everyone who spent so much time supporting & advocating for LES in this budget season. However, in order to continue providing and increase the educational & enrichment opportunities that make LES stand out, we need to do more.
The LES PTO is proud to kick off the 2019 Annual Campaign!
By having a reserve of unrestricted funds, the PTO can help address unanticipated classroom and curriculum needs as they arise throughout the school year. These funds also make it possible for us to organize and fund many community building events (such as the Halloween Party, Talent Show/Game Night, and the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon), as well as field trips for all grade levels.
The PTO is trying to raise $5,000.
Yes, really! It's an ambitious goal, but the LES community has shown up for our kids before, and we know that together we can do even more!
