Once again Lake Vista School will be teaming up with Farm to School and Toonberry Farms for our first fundraiser of the year! The youngest child from each family will be bring home a pamphlet in the next couple days with all the information and forms you will need! The school receives 50% back on all vegetable orders as well as 25% back on all Toonberry orders so this is a great opportunity to raise some money to put towards the playground! Orders will be ready for pick up around November 5th, more info will follow closer to the date.
All donated vegetables will be distributed locally and the 3 top selling families will get to be part of that process!
Thank you everyone for helping to bring us one step closer to getting the playground paid off!

Many parents think that parent engagement at school means being part of the SCC, volunteering for field trips, helping at a hot dog sale or reading with children in the classroom. While these things are very valuable, parent engagement is so much more. It means getting involved in what your child is learning about and supporting them throughout their educational journey.
Students with parents who are engaged in their learning and development, no matter what their background, are more likely to do well at school. However, having the confidence to engage in your child’s learning is not easy for everyone. The good news is that you don’t need a special set of skills to make a real difference for your child. An open mind, a positive attitude and willingness to take part is all that is necessary. Stay tuned for more information on how to be a more engaged parent.
