PTA Holiday Basket Donations
A reminder think of others this holiday season!
The LMS penny drive ends tomorrow November 25th, so kindly send in your loose change. All monies collected will be donated to local Lumberton families. The homeroom that collects the most money will receive a pizza party from the PTA.
Last week, forms were distributed to each student, that included a “wish list” for a sponsored child in the district. Please check your child’s folder if you have not received it.
We ask that you please think of those “wish lists” as you shop this weekend. You may also consider going in with others in your class in a joint effort for any big ticket items.
All donations are due Friday, December 4th.
The Lumberton PTA thanks you for your support and wishes you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
