The Lost & Found rack will be on display before and after Celebrations performances, so please swing by if your child is missing something.



Email lostandfound@russellleepta.org. with questions.


REMINDER: L&F items are posted in the Lee Facebook group frequently



 

3 ways to volunteer!


Seeking volunteers with experience installing drip irrigation system. We would love to keep our beautiful gardens alive and thriving for years to come even in the hot summer months. We are seeking someone in our Lee community to help install an irrigation system in collaboration with our garden team. Please let us know if this is in your wheelhouse! 



Seeking a few additional sets of hands to help install the Russell Lee art exhibit on Monday, January 8th. The whole project should take a few hours, but even if you can help for an hour, we would appreciate the support. No special skills necessary. The exhibit will be open for public viewing on January 20th. 


Seeking volunteers to support our Lee Live committee solicit donations from the community. We will provide you with all of the resources you will need- we just need your time and willingness to reach out behalf of our Lee community! email leelive@russellleepta.org.


If interested in any of these roles, please contact Jessica at president@russellleepta.org





 


Seeking photos from Lee events


I was so sad to miss last week's Movie Night & Clothing swap but I've heard that it was a great success! This means I didn't take any photos to share today which got me thinking...


If you have photos from Lee events that can be shared with the Lee community and/or that the Historian can use in the Lee Yearbook -- WE WANT THEM!


Feel free to send anything to communications@russellleepta.org

Enroll in 2024-2025 School Year!



Save your seat in the 2023-2024 academic year! The new Enroll Austin is up and running so please log in to to register your child for the 2024-2025 school year!


Registering helps the school begin to plan for staffing and facilities needs and is mandatory for all students every year so don't delay! Register Today!


HELPFUL TIP FROM ANASTASIA COLOMBO:

There's currently a glitch in the Enroll Austin portal which is affecting some people. The problem is that after you complete all annual forms, the system won't let you upload them, and instead shows a rather huffy message stating incorrectly that you haven't completed your forms. If you run into this issue, please call 512.414.7328, and the very helpful people in that office will submit an issue ticket for you.
