On February 6th the Lebanon PTO hosted a Cabin Fever Reliever Event for 4th and 5th grade students. All proceeds from this event went to the fund for Ferry Beach 5th Grade students. There were over 40 students and staff in attendance for this ridiculously fun night! Teams competed in over 10 different “minute to win it activities” and tried to learn many old school dances that most of us parents barely know how to do anymore.
Last week we celebrated our 100th day with an awesome event. Students in our school at Hanson collected “Pennies for Pets” all proceeds to be donated to Another Chance Animal Rescue located in North Berwick, ME. The goal was to collect $100 and our community went above and beyond and collected $528.50! This money was happily donated to them on Wednesday in a big assembly with our entire Hanson School.
This coming weekend the Lebanon PTO will be hosting the Butterfly Ball and Boys Bash for our students here in both schools. These events are truly the most fun part of our winter events. We expect over 60 little girls all decked out here at the Hanson school with their “dates”/ dads. We also have confirmed 18 of our 5th grade girls who will attend and receive a special bouquet, as this is their last dance here at the Lebanon Schools. Saturday night boys and their moms will show up for a fun night of dancing and games. Moms and sons will be asked to participate in several “Minute to win it games”. Each of these events is strategically planned for the cold winter time when all kids want to do is get out and have a little fun!!
The Lebanon PTO is also currently preparing for what has become a new and exciting event here at the school the Spring Carnation Sale. On the first day of spring, each student is delivered a special handmade carnation from the Lebanon PTO, as well as carnations that friends and or family members have purchased for them.
The LCLC after school program is working with Maine Snap-Ed to bring Cooking Matters to several of our families here at our schools. Families in the program get together one night a week and learn how to prepare healthy meals for their family, as well as cook a healthy meal at the class. This program is brought to us in partnership with Cooking Matters and Good Shepherd Food Bank.
