Three fast facts about PTO:

  2. PTO discusses ways for families to connect to their child’s education and opportunities to contribute to our school community.
  3. There are only four PTO meetings each year – hope you will join us

First semester clubs begin on September 4th and end on December 20th. There are no clubs on non-school days or on PLC days. There will be no clubs the week of Parent-Teacher Conferences, October 8 – October 12, as well as the week of November 19 – November 23.

Please include dietary needs on the registration slip as well as special accommodations that your child may need.  All school doors will remain locked until 4:45 pm, at which time door 1 will unlock automatically for parents to enter the building and sign out their child from the school’s auditorium.

If you have any questions or comments please call Cristina Keen, CLC Supervisor, at: 402-580-0195 or email: ckeen@lps.org.

 Additional clubs will be offered later in the semester for students who did not get placed into clubs.

 Other information:

  • For emergencies, absences, and/or if you need to pick up your child prior to 4:45, please contact the CLC Supervisor (402-580-0195).
  • Student misbehavior will not be tolerated and may be cause for dismissal from the club.
  • Parent consistently being late for pick up may result in child’s dismissal from club.

School Supplies

What school supplies do I need?

All students should have a backpack along with a lunch box, if needed, marked with their name.

According to Nebraska state law and LPS Policy, students are never required to bring any supplies to school. All supplies necessary for your child’s education will be supplied by LPS.

Some families have asked if they can help by donating supplies. Sometimes having extra supplies on hand is helpful especially when new students arrive, when markers go dry or items get misplaced. Teachers may have a special optional project planned that may require other resources, like notebooks, extra colored pencils or fabric.

IF YOU CHOOSE, you can certainly donate to a grade level ‘supply closet’ that will benefit everyone on the team. Later in the year there may be a time when a grade level sends out another grade level ‘supply closet request’ for a special classroom project.

If you are interested, you can also donate to area school supply drives. Please verify the organization collecting the supplies to ensure the donations are give to the students and schools that need the supplies the most.

Thank you so much for your willingness to help us launch our grade level supply closets. Thank you for being such an incredible group of parents!
