We will hear more about Fall Festival as well! We’ll have a cake walk with a chance to win 2 free tickets!
The school will have 4 laptops set up for parents to gain access to the Infinite Campus portal-so they are able to see grades-these will be located in the Dolphin Diner.

Parents, you are invited to walk your child to school on Wednesday Oct 4th. If you live within walking distance of school, you can walk from home. If you live beyond walking distance, you can park at Forest Hills Golf Club starting at 7:40, and we will walk from there with a police escort.
Remember the fun of GA Walk to School Day ??!!!!
Let’s make this walk even better!! Go Dolphins!
Parents and Students: Log on to www.gaschoolstore.com for information on our Fall Fundraiser.

Hi Parents, If you were not able to attend the PTO meeting on Monday night, please feel free to click here LFH PTO General Membership Meeting 8.14.17 to view the presentation from the meeting. You will find information about all the great things the PTO funds at our school. You can also see upcoming events and learn a few fun facts about our faculty and staff!
Our next volunteer training opportunity will be on Thursday, August 31st at 10 AM. It will last for about 30 minutes and take place with the LFH Instructional Coach, Mrs. Douglas, in Room 6 of the Learning Cottage.
The training results in a volunteer card, which should be sent out around 2-3 weeks after the training. The cards will be given to students to bring home. Volunteers should keep their cards with them and sign in at the front office each time they work in the school.
Who needs a volunteer card? Anyone can get the card if they want to work with students; you do not have to be a parent or guardian. You must have one if you work with any student (other than your own) or with a small group of students. You don’t need them to attend field trips so long as you don’t work with or supervise students (other than your own) on the trip.
Also, as safety is a vital issue when it comes to volunteering, please note that a criminal background search is conducted before a card is issued.
LFH TIE-DYE T-SHIRTS ARE ON SALE NOW!
These are brand new for the 2017-18 school year. Get them while supplies last!
Wear them for field trips or Spirit Days – or any day to show your Dolphin pride!
What do you need to do?
- Pick up an order form in the front office, fill it out, and then attach your cash or check (made out to LFH PTO).
- Place your completed form and payment in the large PTO mailbox in the front entry of the school.
- We will fill your order and send your t-shirts home in your child’s backpack.
Thank you for supporting LFH PTO!!!
LFH Parents, it’s hard to believe, but Open House is right around the corner! If you haven’t already marked your calendars, it will be Thursday, August 3rd from 8:30 to 12:30. If you have questions, please feel free to ask them on our Facebook page and we’ll do what we can to provide answers.
And be sure to learn more about the PTO at our Popsicle Playdate on the Playground! Children can enjoy a popsicle and free time on the playground. Meanwhile, you can check out the PTO events calendar for the year, buy a t-shirt or car decal (which helps raise money for LFH), sign up to help with future events, and meet new faces! You’ll also be able to join the PTO with cash, check, or, starting this year, with a credit card online!
(And you can have a popsicle, too!)
Again, the Open House will be Thursday, August 3rd 8:30 – 12:30.
And please don’t forget to register your student online before Open House.
