This Giving Tuesday, we invite you to join us in making a meaningful impact on the educational experience of students by supporting the Lyons Farm Elementary School PTA. Your contribution will directly impact the pressing issue of student hunger, the PTA provides snacks to every classroom every two weeks to help address student hunger during the instructional day. Additionally, your generosity will enable individual classrooms to access much-needed funding for educational resources, creating a positive and enriching learning environment. The PTA also plays a vital role in enhancing the overall school experience by providing opportunities for improvements and innovations within classrooms through staff grants. Moreover, your support will help sponsor school-wide events that foster a sense of community and engagement among students, parents, and teachers. Together, let's invest in the future of education and empower our students to reach their full potential. Donate today and be a part of the positive change we can achieve together.


Thank you to all who supported the PTA's annual "Thankful to Have You," staff lunch. Special shout-outs to Kelly C, Meredith B, and Lori M for their help with setup and cleanup and to all families that sent in desserts. Wishing you all joyful time off next week and sending gratitude for a wonderful Lyons Farm community.


It's almost book fair time!! The Literati Book Fair will be open Monday December 4th to the 8th in the Lyons Farm media center. It will be open each day that week from 7:15 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and on the nights of the Winter Arts Extravaganza (12/6 & 12/7).

Thank you so much to the families that contributed to our first ever Treat-A-Teacher to Dinner Fundraiser. With our sincere appreciation for your contributions, you helped cover 70% of the cost of the Moe's Taco Meal Kits and Burrito Boxes for Lyons Farm Teachers and Staff! The remaining cost for Lyons Farm Staff was covered through budgeted PTA funds and your contribution will help the PTA to offer additional opportunities to provide tokens of our appreciation to the Lyons Farm Teachers and Staff!

From PTA President, Chris Brown:

Thank you to everyone that stopped by the PTA tables during the Lyons Farm open house on Thursday. We added over 15 new members during the open house and still have t-shirts available. We're looking forward to seeing our Kindergarten families on Tuesday.

Thank you to the many PTA volunteers and Garden Committee Members that helped make the night a success. Nicole Brown arranged and delivered three cakes for the staff dinner and all three cakes were a huge hit. Thank you to Jessica Simo for staffing the PTA information table, while I ran around the building checking on the staff dinner, doing a brief thank you speech at the Garden, and meeting my daughter's first grade teacher. Thank you to Bridget Cook and Johanna Heineck for decorating the garden for the Legacy Walk Grand Opening. Thank you to Stephanie and Jonathan Strickland for staffing the t-shirt table along with Kathleen Nevins. I'm sure I missed some other volunteers, but THANK YOU to everyone that helped make our 2023 Open House a great night.

Hello Lyons Farm Families. This is your 2023-2024 PTA President sharing just a few reminders for our open house tomorrow night.

Open House starts at 6:00 PM (From this week's principal's update: if you can carpool with a neighbor/friend to ease parking, please consider doing so.)

The PTA will be hosting an informal drop in session from 5:30 PM - 5:45 PM in the gym. If you're coming to the drop in, please park in the bus lot for the easiest access to the gym.

At 5:45 PM we'll transition over to the garden for the grand revealing of the Legacy Walk. Sneak peak attached. The PTA expresses our appreciation and gratitude to the Lyons Farmers Garden Committee for decorating the garden for this special reveal.

We now have the 2023-2024 Mr. Hopkins Designed Lyons Farm T-Shirts available for purchase via Givebacks ( ). We have a limited inventory of adult sizes available now, and have youth and adult sizes available as a preorder.

For our Rising Kindergarten families, I'll be at your open house next week to share information with you about the PTA.

Looking forward to a great year at Lyons Farm,

Together In Education - Harris Teeter 08/20/2023

It's the time of year again - time to relink your Harris Teeter VIC card to the Together in Education Program. In our inaugural year, Lyons Farm (School Code 7144) had 162 VIC cards linked, and we received over $1,000 in earnings from Harris Teeter. Let’s see if we can beat that this year! To relink your VIC car visit: Encourage family, friends, and neighbors to link to Lyons Farm (using School Code 7144) as well.
