Dear Lovett Families,
We’ve gone from 15% last week to reaching 50% of our financial goal of $40,000 for the Lovett Rocks with Gratitude campaign as of Monday.  Thank you to the over 80 families that have already participated in this campaign financially!  And thank you to the many kids who have participated in our Gratitude Rock Decorating Parties!  You all rock!  However, we are only at 13% of our participation goal of 100%.  Remember, every donation counts, no matter the size!  Even $1 shows that you think Lovett Rocks and you want to support Lovett and its students!

Our last Gratitude Rock Decorating Party is tomorrow for our Pre-K friends. Details for joining are HERE.  Even if they couldn’t attend a party, your kids can still decorate a rock.  Contact LaQuita Buffone at to arrange a porch pickup at her home.
This week, I want to thank Amy Schraub for the amazing graphics she designed and donated to the Lovett Rocks Campaign.  She did a beautiful job creating something fun that matched our vision for the campaign.  Contact her if you have graphic design needs!
This weekend, the Dad’s Club was at it again improving the landscaping in the courtyard and the butterfly garden on the Birdwood side of the school.  Plants and soil were donated by the Losee Family (Sun Landscaping and Design), and installed by our hardworking volunteers.  Thank you for making our school more beautiful and usable for our kids.
Website Content Volunteer needed: We’re looking for someone who is comfortable with updating content on the PTO website (no coding knowledge needed).  This job would require activity each week.  Contact for more details. Reminders:
  • Thurs, Oct 29, Spirit Day at Mia’s Table
  • Thurs, Oct 29, Lovett Rocks decorating party for Pre K. Details HERE.
  • Thurs, Nov 12, Next PTO Meeting
Details for all events are given below as well as other reminders.

Lovett Rocks with Gratitude Campaign

Lovett Rocks Campaign

Our Lovett Rocks with Gratitude Campaign for the 2020-2021 school year is now underway. This is our annual fundraiser to help supplement the school's annual budget and provide additional resources to our teachers and school.  The funds raised will be used to help make virtual learning more effective, support efforts to make face-to-face learning safer, and enhance our campus with various capital improvements.  No gift is too small and we hope to have 100% family participation.
