SPRING LUAU! Friday, April 27th

Attention LP Families!  

Just a reminder that our Spring Luau  

is coming this month! 

The event will be held on Friday, April 27th at 4:30 (in place of the postponed Fall Carnival.) We are planning a very fun event complete with food, games and our annual Cake Walk!   

 

To make this event a success, we need your baking help! All students who bring a cake donation will be entered in a raffle to win a Tangelo gift card.  

The class that brings in the most cakes will earn an extra recess!  
Hawaiian themed cakes, cupcakes or desserts will be accepted at the

Friday, April 27th during morning drop-off or afternoon pickup

at the Redwood Building (across from the Oak Room). Thanks in advance for your contribution. Happy Baking!   

 Students and siblings can purchase a wristband which gives unlimited access to over 15 carnival games, a giant inflatable slide, and face painting. Wristbands are not needed for parents/adults. The wristband costs $12 prepaid online. Cake Walk tickets can also be purchases on MTK for $5. (Note: At the door the cost will be $15 for wristbands and $5 for Cake Walk tickets). All proceeds raised by the LP PTA directly benefit our children and Los Perales.

Please note: If you purchased wristbands for the Fall Carnival, 
these will be honored at the Spring Luau.

 Also, this event does not replace  

our annual Spring Picnic which will still be held on June 1st. 

Please contact Erin Chang or Ada Sheng with any questions or to volunteer.

Read-a-thon May 16-29th! Bring in gently used books for the book drive!

The read-a-thon will run from Monday, April 16th to Sunday, April 29th. Sponsors can choose to donate a flat amount, or sponsor you per page or minute that you read. Payments can be made via cash, checks made payable to LP PTA or online via MTK. On Friday, April 27th, each class will have a one-hour "read-in" during the school day. This read-a-thon will be raising money which will be used to fund a few Breakout EDU kits for the LP library. These kits are a great way to transform a library space into a hub for immersive learning. They help to encourage critical thinking in groups and assist in further developing teamwork, collaboration and problem solving. In addition, we are planning to purchase some Robot Mouse Activity Sets for our computer lab. These sets allow for hands-on practice with coding in an interactive way where students make a maze and then use code to help the programmable mouse find its way out.

 

For our service component of the read-a-thon this year, we have also chosen to fund book purchases for an under-served school in Oakland, as well as organizing a used book drive for a school with fewer resources than our own. Start reading today and don't forget to bring in some gently used books for the book drive. There is a bin in front of the office for your donations. Thank you for your support.

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!
