LP PTA Presents STEM Night!

 


 

 

Lawrence Hall of Science will present Wizard's Lab at LP's STEM Night on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. A ball floats and spins in midair, fingers pass through a seemingly solid object, words whispered into a metal can are heard over 10 feet away - these are just a few of the weird, wondrous, hands-on exhibits found in the Wizard's Lab! As "science wizards," studentsexplore the almost magical properties of matter and energy, participate in high-voltage and subzero experiments, and figure out how things really work in the fun-, fact-, and phenomenon-filled world of physics.

 

Contact Joanna Haskin with any questions or to find out how to volunteer. 

 

 

  • 4th and 5th Grade Book Club  Wednesday, January 24th at lunchtime in the library

  

 

Our book for January 2018 is Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman, an exciting mystery full of puzzles and secret codes. Come join us for our next meeting on Wednesday, January 31st in the library at lunchtime!

What is the PTA?  

PTA (Parent Teacher Association): The goal of the PTA is to build strong working relationships among parents, teachers and administration in support of our students. We recruit and coordinate volunteers, plan and organize a mix of educational and fun school activities, plan teacher appreciation activities and much more.  

 

Our PTA provides a wide range of activities/services for our school, including:

  • After School Enrichment Programs, Hot Lunch, Spelling Bee, Fun Run, Geography Bee, Read-a-thon, Fall Carnival, movie nights, annual dodgeball game, annual dance, yearbook, book clubs, spiritwear, Spring Picnic, special assemblies, Math Night, room parents in each classroom, and the Science Fair.   

Some of the events listed above are fundraisers (Fun Run, Read-a-thon and Fall Carnival), which are separate from Moraga Education Foundation (MEF).  The money raised from these activities benefits LP directly and provides a stipend ($400) for each teacher for supplies, as well as staff training and development, schoolwide office supplies and materials, subscriptions and equipment needed for supplemental classes, such as PE, art and computers.  We also fund one capital improvement project per year on campus.  Recently, some of the big items the PTA funded were the lower playground, and a new audio-visual system in the Oak Room, which is our multi-purpose room.

 

PTA members include parents, teachers and administrators.  We encourage you to join the PTA (available on Membership Toolkit) and become active in the school community.  Our meetings are held at LP monthly (third Wednesday of the month at 9:30 a.m.), with one evening meeting in February. Each meeting includes an update from our Principal, Ms. Richards, as well as an update on grade level activities provided by a teacher representative.  In addition, we go over financials and monthly business and occasionally will have a guest speaker who will present on a topic of interest.  

 

Even if you can't make the meetings, there are many ways that you can get involved. We have a great group of parents who help out at the school in all different ways and would love to have you on our team. The kids love to see their parents on campus helping out!  And for those of you who can't be on campus, there are plenty of jobs that need to be done from home.  If you are interested in getting more involved, let me know, and I can help you find a job that works for you!
