Hello Leopold Families. There are some fun things coming up at school in the weeks ahead. Be sure to get the dates below on your calendar, or you can add the PFO calendar to your family calendar by visiting our online calendar here:
Science Night is scheduled to take place at Open Schoolhouse on March 4th from 6pm-8pm. We hope that this event will show families how fun science is, and expose students to different areas of science. This event will include family challenges, hands-on experiments, and cool demonstrations. Science Night will also feature "MaGicEnergy," an interactive show that includes juggling, storytelling, and magic and inspires kids to engage in environmental stewardship. We are currently looking for more volunteers to participate in Science Night by facilitating interactive exploration stations, serving food, and assisting with set up and tear down. Please review this online sign up if you're interested. Any questions/comments, please contact Kao Yong Thao (608-204-4334,firstname.lastname@example.org)
Leopold Garage Sale
Calling bargain hunters and closet cleaners! The Leopold garage sale is scheduled for April 5. Items to donate for the garage sale can be brought in on Friday, April 4 (drop-off time to be determined). Mrs. Czech is organizing the garage sale and would like a few parent volunteers to help out! If you are interested in helping (and getting a first look at the goods), you can email Mrs. Czech at email@example.com.
We have just wrapped up our second round of collection and counting BoxTops for the year and we collected an amazing 8,460+ BoxTops!! Last year we set a goal of 10,000 for the entire school year, so we've already blown that out of the water this year! The classroom winner this round is Ms. Stitgen's first graders with an average of 39 BoxTops per student! The next contest will be begin soon so keep saving all of those BoxTops.
A huge shout out to Michelle Barfield who counts ALL of these BoxTops and tracks them for each class, as well as to Jessica Kopish who sorts and prepares them for mailing. We're making these ladies work extra hard, which they are happy to do, so be sure to thank them!
DLI parents are invited to attend a DLI Summit and BoE Forum.
