April 2014 Newsletter

April (come she will) is here and are we ever looking forward to Spring! Please join us for our monthly meeting on the 2nd at 6pm in the library. Free childcare is provided. 

My sincere gratitude to Jackie Wallace, Missy Russell, Bonnie Eastman, Ben McPherson & Rose Huang, for running a successful concession stand for the Student Council Carnival this year. It couldn’t be done without them or Mr. Tom Matweecha, owner of Domino’s Pizza, who supplied the delicious pizzas! Also, to the bakers of the yummy items for the bake sale, mmm mmm good!!

A big round of applause goes to FLS students, faculty & staff for all those wonderful performances at the Festival of the Arts/Spring Showcase. We certainly appreciate the time and efforts put into that long standing tradition each year! Thank you to Heather Eastman for manning the t-shirt table.  

The Playground Committee is up and running, their next meeting is April 2nd at 5pm in the library. Can’t make the meeting but still interested in joining the committee? Please contact Mary Ann Preston:

The 2nd Family Lego Block Party was just as fun as the first thanks to Dawn Metott and the Oswego City/County Youth Bureau along with John and Gretchen Dowd who helped with the snacks.

Home and School will be working with Student Council this year to plant another pinwheel garden for the annual Child Abuse Prevention Pinwheel Campaign. Watch for more info to come home on how your $1 can help our garden grow and help the Child Advocacy Center of Oswego County at the same time.

Thank you to all who participated in our annual Gertrude Hawk candy sale, which was again a success this year. I am sure everyone savored (or will) their tasty treats, I know I did.

I hope everyone enjoys the Spring Break, if traveling, please do so safely, if staying home and spring cleaning like me, lets hope we can open our windows and let winter out!! 

As always, your support of Leighton Home and School is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or any Home & School officer.
