PTO Wants you to Know!
Boot Committee Update
Planning has started for the 21st Annual Boot Scootin' Boogie. This is our largest fundraiser which is a springtime adult only event with dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions and much more. We have had some volunteers step up to help - thank you! We still need YOUR help too!
How can you help?
Volunteer to help make the Boot happen - email LES PTO at email@example.com with your interests
Ask for donations for our silent auction from the businesses you visit
Donate any unused gift cards or new items you don't want to the silent auction
Ask your teacher or classroom ambassador how you can support your classroom live auction basket
Spread the word about the Boot - tickets will go on sale in March so watch for details
There is now a bin in the LES lobby where we will be collecting your donations. Please fill out a Silent Auction Item form (you will find this in the bin) so we know the value and who donated the item. We'll issue you a tax donation receipt for all donations that we use at the Boot. Do you have ideas to share or connections to offer? Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your help making this fundraiser a huge success!
From The Hospitality Committee:
We are approaching that time of year again for Parent Teacher Conferences (March 12-14). As a thank you to all the long hours and work our teachers put in preparing and conducting these conferences, it is an LES tradition that we provide our awesome teachers with meals on these three days of conferences! Please take a look at this sign up and, if you are able, please sign up to bring an item or two to help out! Thank you parents for ALL your help and support!

State Standardized Testing
Did you know that Larkspur was honored with the Governor's Distinguished Award from the Colorado Department of Education? What is this you ask? The Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Awards are given to schools that demonstrate exceptional student growth. On the school performance framework that is used by the state to evaluate schools, these schools "exceed" expectations on the indicator related to longitudinal academic growth and "meet or exceed" expectations on the indicator related to academic growth gaps. I am so proud of all the hard work we have done in laying a solid foundation for our kids and encourage all students to take these assessments. Please read the following letter from all leaders in the CVHS feeder area regarding CMAS testing (Colorado Measures of Academic Standards) CVHS Standardized Testing Feeder Letter
I hope everyone has an amazing weekend and if you have any comments questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out!
