Dear Lovett Families,

Thank you for making Teacher Appreciation a grand success!  The teachers felt love from everyone – students, parents and administrators.  They especially love the hand written notes and handmade gifts!

A hot topic as of late has been access to the playgrounds.  Per a meeting I had with Principal Thompson on Monday: the biggest thing we're waiting on for the playgrounds is mulch. The levels of the mulch are dangerously low. Because the schools were given no prior warning of a reopening date, they had no time to prepare. The district is in charge of mulch and order it in bulk. They have walked our campus and assessed our needs and the purchase order has been placed. That said, no delivery date has been given. Not to mention -all of HISD and a large number of city parks all need mulch, so there could be supply constraints as well. Mrs. Thompson said that despite these circumstances, the kids are HAPPY and have lots of other equipment to play with...soccer balls, basket balls, kick balls, hula hoops, jump ropes, etc. They are having fun.

Our last PTO meeting of the year is tomorrow, Thursday, May 13th.   For the link to the meeting and documents go HERE. You’ll get to meet and vote on the new slate of offices for our PTO.  We are excited for them to bring in their fresh ideas, perspectives and enthusiasm for Lovett!  You can also hear more about our plans for revamping the playgrounds and more.

As we approach the end of the year, we encourage you all to consider honoring our faculty and staff this year is by contributing to our new "End of Year Gift Fund" which will be distributed across all faculty and staff as a thank you.  Contribute or read more about it here: https://lovettpto.membershiptoolkit.com/form/m/139469
