SUBJECT: Lovett PTO News: October 2, 2020





Dear Lovett Families,

Happy Fall!  What a gorgeous day it was on Monday to have a holiday from school!  I hope you were able to get outside and wear a sweater for a little while.


As the change of seasons approaches, so will more PTO activities with opportunities to have fun and give back to the school.  The Moms Club Is planning a fun virtual cooking class and the new fall campaign will be kicking off next week.  Stay tuned for details next week.


Don't forget, ALL FORMS ARE DUE TODAY, including the Socio Economic form that impacts our overall school budget!

Our next PTO meeting is just around the corner on October 8th.  We're also excited about upcoming Spirit Nights at two local restaurants.  See more details below.

5th grade parents, I created a Middle School Resources page on our website (partly for selfish reasons) to make it a bit easier to find info about schools our students typically move on to attend after Lovett.  Let me know if there are other schools you'd like to see added or additional information.

As always, scroll down for more announcements.


Have a great weekend!

Christi Megow

PTO President, 2019-2021
