Roadrunner Rundown | Week 25


Table of Contents





 

Welcome to this very Lee Live post...


This very Lee Live edition of the Roadrunner Rundown is just a preview of what is still to come! Tomorrow the Lee Live crew will get together to bundle baskets out of donations and finish getting the Grade Level Art and Grade Level Baskets up on the auction site.


For now, Please remember to grab your ticket https://bit.ly/leelive2024 and be ready for a good time because just over a week from now we'll be enjoying Lee Live Clue edition and hopefully opening our wallets and our hearts in the name of supporting the school and community we all love and rely on to keep our Roadrunners safe and educated.


And remember it is never too late to donate goods, services, or dollars!


Thank you to everyone who came out to the Lee Live Coffee Hour! It was great to see so many people this morning! and a special thank you to Kerstin and Chip for displaying the 3rd grade art project! More grade level art and basket previews to come this weekend.

Ticket sales now open! Purchase here before they sell out.


Saturday, March 2, 2024 @ the Austin Public Library (Central Branch)

6:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Step into a world of vintage glamour inspired by the classic board game and film Clue. Our annual spring fundraiser, Lee Live, invites you to delve into a night filled with thrilling twists and turns as you engage in a live auction, sway to live music from Eagle Eye Williamson and the Talking Heads cover band HeartByrne, and savor sumptuous Vik and Al’s cajun cuisine that would delight even the most discerning guests of Mr. Boddy.


Music Preview: HeartByrne


HeartByrne pays tribute to Talking Heads and David Byrne, who fused pop, funk, art rock, and African rhythms into perhaps the most adventurous, danceable and timeless music to emerge from the new wave movement.




Music Preview: Eagle Eye Williamson


Eagle Eye Williamson is a 7th generation Texas from Austin who creates original blues/vintage rock music playing drums, guitar and singing at the same time.







Grade-level colors: Kindergarten: Noir; 1st Grade: Peacock Blue; 2nd Grade: Mustard Yellow; 3rd Grade: Scarlet Red; 4th Grade: Verde; 5th Grade: Plum Purple; 6th Grade: Blanc
