PTO General Membership Meeting and Parent Orientation

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to learn more about the PTO and your student’s teacher!

What day, you ask? This Thursday, August 30th.

Will there be food, you wonder? Yes! There’ll be pizza and drinks for sale starting at 5:30pm.

When does the PTO Meeting start? It’s at 6:00.

Should I leave after the meeting? No! After the meeting there will be a parent orientation in individual classrooms.

Is that all, you query? Of course that’s not all! This is the LFH PTO! There’ll also be:

  • Free cookies and other giveaways from our Fall Fundraiser (Great American Fundraiser)!
  • New LFH Spirit Shirts for sale ($12 per shirt or $10 for members)!
  • State of the School Presentation with an Activity Calendar for the year and Volunteer Opportunities!

So join the PTO (if you haven’t already), buy a shirt and some pizza, and learn more from your child’s teacher about what to expect this year!

And remember: even if you don’t have time to volunteer, the membership dues make a huge difference!

NEW LFH T-Shirts

The new LFH t-shirts are here!

We have new shades of blue and a new design. Also, starting this year, we’re giving PTO members a discount on the t-shirts: the new t-shirts will be $10 for members (and they’ll continue to be $12 for non-members). Be sure to sign up for the PTO and buy a t-shirt tomorrow during Registration or Open House! Members will also be getting a new weekly email, which will include updates from Dr. Driggers, and – while supplies last! – a free car sticker.

Registration and Open House

Registration and Open House

  • LFH Registration: 8 AM to 3 PM on Fri Aug 3
  • LFH Open House: 3 PM to 7 PM on Fri Aug 3
  1. What is Registration?
    • Registration is the process by which RCBOE (the Richmond Counter Board of Education) collects all the information that is needed in order to enroll your child.
  2. Who needs to go?
    • According to RCBOE, “Parents of new or transferring (moved to a new school zone) students are required to complete registration. Student’s [sic: this is an improper use of the possessive] already legally registered in a school or school zone should only update registration on a regular basis to keep information current.”
    • It is possible to complete part of the registration process online. However, RCBOE states that “[o]nce you complete the online registration portion, you will need to go to your zoned school to provide additional documentation […].”
    • If your child has already been attending LFH, you will not need to re-register.
  3. What do I need to bring?
  4. If I have problems or questions, whom can I contact?
    • According to RCBOE, “Elementary Registration is conducted at the Central Office 864 Broad Street at the 1st floor help desk each Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00AM-5:00PM.”
    • However, you may join us on the LFH Registration Day and have your questions answered at our school by LFH faculty and staff.
  5. What is Open House?
    • The primary purpose of Open House is to meet your child’s new teacher.
  6. Who needs to go?
    • No one must go, but we encourage everyone to attend.
  7. What do I need to bring?
    • You don’t need to bring anything, although you may wish to drop off school supplies so that you don’t have to worry about your child lugging them all in on the first day of school.
  8. What else can I do when I visit the school this Friday?
    • There will be tables for the PTO, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and the Boys & Girls Club for the entire day.
  9. If I have problems of questions, whom can I contact?
    • Please contact the front office at 706-737-7317 or the LFH PTO (using Facebook or emailing us at lfhelempto@gmail.com).
  10. Any final words?
    • Please take your time and, like our students, feel free to ask questions and explore!

Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation Week

April 30-May 4th, 2018

Show your teachers and staff members how much they mean to you!

Here are some ideas.

  • Tuesday: Bring your teacher a surprise (such as an apple, a flower, or a drawing).
  • Wednesday: Bring a school supply for your teacher.
  • Thursday: Compliment your teacher with a homemade card or note.
  • Friday: Wear your teacher’s favorite color (and be sure to ask her what it is!).

Even a single one of these can help our teachers and staff to know how important they are!

LFH Academic Night

When? Monday April 16th at 6 pm

The LFH Academic Night will feature activity stations (run by LFH teachers), make-and-take games, and online resources (example). We’ll show you how to easily enhance your student’s ability to learn at home.
