Lee PTA Needs Your Help!


The Lee PTA is working on a plan to update the landscaping at Lee in order to make it both aesthetically pleasing and sustainable so if you or someone you know have expertise or skillset in any related area, we'd love to connect and discuss further.


  1. Landscape designer or hortoculturist to help develop a vision for the front aesthetic of our school

  2. Irrigation experience to help design and execute an irrigation system for the side gardens

  3. We are considering creating a seating / outdoor classroom area on the side of the school between the library and the school and would love for a community member with a vision and / or experience to draw something up so we can consider pricing and options.



 

Solar Eclipse


Reminder Monday is the Solar Eclipse we've all been waiting for! AISD will be open and the school has been working on a plan to ensure all students and staff can view it safely. See Principal Sileo's PS post for full details here.
