Lewis Elementary Fundraiser

From Lewis Elementary PTA: Place your orders today for the popular holiday wreath and centerpiece sale. We have a nice selection of evergreen wreaths, swags and centerpieces! Order by November 17th, with pickup on December 4th. About 50% of all sales go right back into our school. Click here to order!

[Image Description: Five types of holiday centerpieces and wreaths with descriptions and prices listed next to each one.]

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.
