I want to extend a thank you to all families that were able to make it out to a Parent Teacher Conferences it looks like we had over 95% attendance! It was great to see so many people in the building discussing next academic steps for our students. I hope that everyone is looking for to our festivities at the end of this week - please see the updates below:
PTO Meeting Cancelled:
Due to the LTES Thanksgiving on Friday, we are cancelling the PTO meeting scheduled for Thursday. Please be on the lookout for PTO announcements at the Friday event.
LTES Community Thanksgiving:
This Friday, from 5:30 – 7:15, we will be hosting our first LTES Community Thanksgiving. Turkey will be provided by the PTO and it sounds like we will have a whole host of side dishes to share, as well. So far, we have over 250 students/family members signed up to attend and we have put together activities including a community art project and group karaoke for all to enjoy. We are looking forward to getting everyone together!
Blue Ribbon Celebration:
This Friday, from 2:00 – 3:15, our students in K-5 will be celebrating our National Blue Ribbon Award. We are working with the Eastern High School Marching Band to hopefully have a performance along with some special gifts for our students and teachers. Special thanks to Mrs. Francis for putting the event together and especially to those that put in so much work over the years to earn this prestigious award for our school. This event was initially planned as part of the Thanksgiving Celebration, but due to a time crunch, we decided to make two separate events. Families are still welcome to join!
Community of Giving Campaign:
We have kicked off our Community of Giving Campaign. As a little more background, the DCPS budget alone is not enough to achieve the world-class education we seek for our students. There is much more we could be offering our children and their teachers with your support—improved technology, more field trips, exciting relevant books in all classrooms, a wider variety of learning materials and adequate supplies. To donate, please visit our website at ludlowtaylor.org or contact a member of the PTO.
Please reach out with any questions and/or feedback – looking forward to seeing everyone this Friday!
