Dear Parents,

Welcome back to a new and exciting school year. For parents new to the school, the PPO would like to take the time to welcome you to the L.E.S family. As members of the PPO, we look forward to what this year will bring and to working with parents and staff on upcoming fundraisers and events. For those of you who do not know the PPO, here is a little description of who we are and how we make a difference in school life for the children and staff.

The PPO is a group of caring and enthusiastic parents who meet once a month to discuss school issues on a variety of topics. We serve as an integral part in administering and supporting many programs that exist within our school as well as organizing fundraising activities.

In the past the PPO have prioritized specific areas to contribute to such as outdoor activity (playground equipment), sports equipment as well as the art and music programs. In order to contribute funding in these areas we hosted events such as the spaghetti supper, Santa Shop, Spring Fling, and the Silent Auction and Bazaar on Friendship Day. These organized events also contribute to supporting activities like the end of year field trips, Christmas dinner and the annual visit from a naturalist.

Many other annual activities require support in the form of “man-power”. In these cases, the PPO members offer support by being present during events like the Grade 6 graduation, the end of year BBQ and picture day.

This organization is a wonderful opportunity to get involved with the school, while working directly for our students benefit. We always welcome new parent volunteers so if you are interested in becoming involved, have questions about how you can help during a sponsored event or would like to provide feedback; contact us at lennoxvilleppo@gmail.com and/or join us on Facebook (Lennoxville Elementary School Parent Participation Organization).
