LAST CHANCE TO BUY A YEARBOOK

 Did you miss out on buying Lake Elmo Elementary's 2020-2021 yearbook? You're in luck!
 
The Lake Elmo PTA has decided to order a limited number of extra yearbooks to sell.  
You may purchase yours HERE for $19 each. 
Don't delay - once we sell out, we will not order more.   
 
Note: If you recently emailed the PTA to tell them you are interested in purchasing yearbooks,
that does not count as an official order.
You *must* pay for your yearbooks on the PTA website.
 

 
 

 

Use the Box Tops app to earn cash for Lake Elmo Elementary! Just buy Box Tops participating products (like Cheerios or Annie's snacks) and scan your grocery receipt. Box Tops are worth $.10 each and they add up fast! Twice a year, our school receives a check to help pay for school supplies and field trips!

 

Create an account and select "Lake Elmo Elementary" as your home school.

[NOTE: We will also continue to collect physical Box Tops as that version of the program phases out.]

  Happy Shopping!

 

 

 

When you shop smile.amazon.com and select Lake Elmo Elementary PTA as your charity of choice, a small percentage of your purchase price will go to Lake Elmo PTA.  It is the same as shopping on Amazon’s regular website and you may use your existing Amazon account. 

NOTE: You must be on smile.amazon.com in order for Lake Elmo PTA to receive the donation.

Lake Elmo Jaycees Donates $4,000 to PTA

Last month, the Lake Elmo Jaycees voted to donate $4,000 to the Lake Elmo PTA in support of our Artist in Residence Program.  We are so grateful to their members for their continued support for our programs and investment in our students.  

The Jaycees have been a huge supporter and important partner of Lake Elmo Elementary and many organizations in our community for 50 years, and they're looking for new members to keep their group going strong.  For more information on what they do and how to join the Jaycees, visit lakeelmojaycees.org.

 

Partnership Plan Donates $1,000 to PTA

The Lake Elmo PTA would like to thank the Partnership Plan for its generous donation of $1,000, gifted to us as a thank you for our participation in the Pony Up for Kids Campaign in October.  The Partnership Plan gives a tremendous amount and does so much important work for Stillwater area students and teachers each year, and we are proud to partner with them to raise funds for their important work.

 


 

Thank You for Participating in Give to the Max Day!

With your help, we raised $5,045 for the Lake Elmo PTA on Give to the Max Day!  While we didn't reach our goal, we are so proud to see our community come together for our students and teachers.  Here's how our friendly class competition turned out:

 

Pre-K                       $25
Kindergarten          $325
1st Grade            $1,205
2nd Grade              $565
3rd Grade            $1,005
4th Grade               $160
5th Grade               $100

 

Congratulations to our first place winner - 1st grade

and our second place winner - 3rd grade! 

Each 1st grade classroom will receive $300 to spend on Scholastic books. Each 3rd grade classroom will receive $200 for Scholastic books.  

 

We also want to congratulate our spectacular student winners! Jack Hanline was top earner, raising $500 for his team. Our other student winner, chosen in a random drawing, is Truett Brazzell.  Both students will receive $50 to spend on Scholastic books!  

 


 
 

Our sincere thanks go out to Principal Gorde, Lisa Blake and Eric Anderson for their eye-opening presentation on the thoughtful work being done to ensure equity for our students at Lake Elmo.  We are so grateful for and proud of the tremendous effort of our staff to dismantle systemic racism in our school and make sure each of our students feels represented, supported and valued.

Thank you!

The Lake Elmo PTA online auction was a great success! With your help, we raised more than $4,200 that will put much-needed resources in our classrooms, gym and media center!

You may also pay in person with cash or check (payable to Lake Elmo Elementary PTA).
