Thank you for cleaning up the garden!
Waystation fall cleanup 11/5 10:30am-noon
Our garden has grown beautifully this summer and now it's time to get it ready for winter. Adult volunteers and older kids are needed to help pull plants, cut down perennials, and spread chopped leaves (if we have them). Sign up via email to [email protected] or just show up at the garden at the back of the school (bring gloves).
If you're cleaning up leaves in your yard this weekend, we'd love some mulched leaves (not just raked leaves, they do need to be mowed over once or twice first) for the monarch waystation garden. Let us know if you have any bags you'd like to bring over to the school garden. Thanks!

As PTA leaders in our schools, we know technology plays a large role in how our children are learning. Understanding digital wellness helps families play, learn, connect and grow together. As our world becomes increasingly digital, the solution doesn’t lie in eliminating technology, but rather by making technology work for our students and actively evaluating how it is being used to ultimately better the learning experience.
We are excited to announce a new Parent Information Session in collaboration with LCPS on Students' Use of Technology in Schools!
