Fundraising

It is the goal of the LFES PTA to positively impact the lives of all children and their families by providing support through fundraising events. Our school is able to use the money raised through fundraisers to provide student enrichment programs such as K-3 Music Programs ($22,000)Field trips for every grade level ($15 per student) and Art Masters ($5,800). Additionally, money raised helps provide technology in the computer labs, student planners and HW folders for every student (approx. $2,100) and supplies for the classroom ($200 per class.) We encourage everyone to participate in the various fundraising events throughout the year. We couldn’t do it without your support! and the support of our community partners

There are many ways you can help earn money for our school all year long!

We Need Your Help To Keep Our School Green!

LFES is now a certified state Recycling Program.  You might have seen the recycling bin located on the middle school campus, but now the monthly Water Bottle Wednesday collections will be deposited right into the bin. Both LFES and LFMS will be participating in the program going forward.   Each time bin is filled, it will be hauled off by the recycling company and the money goes to both schools!
Be sure to bring all your bottles and cans for the first collection this year on Wednesday, August 31!
