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 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.
The PTO has been busy this summer! One thing we’re doing to make your life easier is creating a new PTO website. We hope that LFH parents will be able to join the PTO, sign up to volunteer, and stay informed using this site. We have a Web Committee in place, and at our next meeting we’ll review the initial draft of our new site.
Welcome to the Lake Forest Hills Elementary PTO website! This is currently a work in progress, so please let us know of any problems you encounter. You should find tabs in the menu that direct toward pages for becoming a member and volunteering – and more!
