Nominations for 2021-22 PTA Board
Interested in helping out the BEST school in the area? We are now accepting nominations for the following Executive Officer positions for this year’s PTA Executive Committee. We welcome all nominations and will strive to create a diverse and balanced roster of applicants that accurately represents our school’s demographic. Our goal is to see that every parent has a voice on our PTA and is given the chance to become actively involved in enriching the educational opportunities at our school. You may nominate as many candidates as you choose; however, you must use a separate form for each recommendation. Elections will be held the first week in May; the term will begin after the election and will run through the school year. The time commitment is about 2-4 hours a month depending on planned activities.
Nominations can be sent via email firstname.lastname@example.org or sent into the school office by
April 30, 2021. Nomination Form is to the right.

Lunch Delivery Sign Up Sheet Available!
Help! Need someone for March 30! Dates Available in April!
Thank you, thank you to everyone that has offered to deliver lunches to the school. Lunch signup sheet is available through the end of the school year. I have also added Wednesdays starting April 28 (fingers crossed!). This is a HUGE service to the school and we NEED moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles to help. It only takes 30 minutes and helps feed our students a HOT meal.
Don’t forget LAB when shopping!
Register your Ingles Advantage Card and help your local school. This past school year we were able to give back to the school almost $200. This is a donation to the school allowing the staff to purchase key supplies for the office, library, classrooms and the outdoor area. Sign up online now and start scanning your card each time you shop! You have to relink your card each school year; a card can only be linked to one school per school year.
LABCS is a Box Tops for Education School. For more information about Box Tops for Education, click on the link https://www.boxtops4education.com/. And then don’t forget to scan your grocery store receipt when you get home. Every dime counts towards equipment for the school!
