February 2019


Dear LEAD Families,


As February was our month of gratitude here at LEAD, I’d like to begin by expressing gratitude to many people on campus and in our community that make LEAD such a magical place. First, I want to thank all of our staff here LEAD, from Ms. Erika and Ms. Denora in our front office to all of our support personnel and teachers, to Mr. Carlos and Mr. Eddie our custodians, we are all working together to give the best school experience for our students! I also want to express my gratitude to our community and to you, our families, that partner with us in our children’s education and lives! Together, we’re positively impacting our students and our school. Our next character trait is- responsibility. Thank you for reinforcing our character traits and our Core Four (kind, safe, respectful, & responsible) at home.


This month, we held our PTA drive with a goal of raising $2,500 and increasing membership by 100 new members. To date we have raised $2,800 and increased membership by 59 new members! You can still join at any time.  Our next PTA sponsored event is a free family movie night on Friday, March 22nd at 6:00pm. We will hold the event in the LGI and look forward to seeing you then! Checkout our new PTA website www.leadpta.org for more information.


Friday kicks off LEAD’s 7th Annual Read Across LEAD literacy drive!  This year’s goal is to raise $10,000. The literacy fundraiser starts Friday, March 1 and lasts two weeks until March 15th. Thank you for taking the time and considering a donation to LEAD. Any amount is appreciated. Donations will go directly to teachers and into their classrooms for your students. Please take a moment to read the attached note and see what we can purchase with the funds!


This month I also had the opportunity to meet with parents for an evening chat. I look forward to having more opportunities and connecting with families. We will continue to hold evening meetings each month, and I hope to see you then!


Finally, as a school it is important to work together as a community partnership. One of the ways to do this is through a school site council. This group is comprised of teachers, parents, and site personnel. The time commitment is once per month for an hour after school. We will be discussing site plans moving forward. If you are interested in being apart of our site council, please contact me at agoll@smfcsd.net.


Thank you for everything you continue to do to support LEAD, our staff, and our students!
