Italian Sodas… Legos… Book Swap… and more!

thumbnailCANCFTLWWe invite you to join us at the first PTSA meeting of the year – Thursday, September 25th at 6:30 p.m. in the gym.  We will have a special time to “Meet the New Principal.”  Help us welcome Mrs. Lendosky to the LY community and find out a little more about her.  Then in addition to the meeting, the kids are welcome to come have an Italian soda.  We’re also hosting a Book Swap just in time for the Grizzly Reader program to begin.  Bring up to 3 books your child has already read to trade with other kids. We’ll also share information about this year’s Reflections art contest and see some entries from past years.  And does your child like to play with Legos?  The “Bricks 4 Kidz” after school program is coming to Lake Youngs this fall and they will showcase what they do in their classes.   You’ll also have an opportunity to sign-up for volunteer opportunities with PTSA.  There is just so much happening at this meeting – we hope to see you there!
