The Lewis PTA is happy to announce that the annual Lewis Bake Sale returns this year!

Grab some coffee and goodies when you pick up your wreath or centerpiece. The bake sale will be held on Saturday, 12/4, from 10am-12pm at the front Lewis Parking Lot. Stay tuned: we will be looking for donations of store bought baked goods as the date gets closer.

Unfortunately, the PTA is unable to host the annual tree sale this year. The June heatwave took a toll on our vendor’s trees, and he is unable to provide us with trees this year. Thank you to Dave Harsey for his decade of support of the Lewis PTA by providing us with trees. Unfortunately, we are also unable to host the traditional Lewis Holiday Bazaar this year, due to PPS restrictions. We are looking forward to reviving this tradition next year.

Donors Choose Project at Woodmere Elementary

Wiggle Wobble Learn! Support Woodmere Students with Donors Choose!

[Image Description: A classroom bulletin board with a daily schedule listed in a vertical column.]

About the Project from Ms. Breen at Woodmere Elementary School: My students are currently making their hard metal chairs wobble chairs and their actions are telling us what they need! These requested chairs will help them be able to move their bodies in ways they need to in order to focus on the learning they have been so desperately missing in person. This also helps with social distancing and anxiety, as many students feel nervous with school not feeling the same as they are 2 years older and the world has changed. These chairs are easy to move and easy to sanitize. Even the hexagon seat is fun to slide your hands on!
