Free After-School Club Updates


There was a record number of applications this semester and almost half of all Lee students were offered a spot in a free after-school club! Thank you to all of the club leaders for contributing to such a robust program this year.

Everyone who applied for clubs has been sent an email with either the club information their student has been enrolled in, or notification of having been placed on a waitlist. If your student has decided not to participate in the club they are enrolled in, please send an email to enrichment@russellleepta.org in order to make room for others.

All free clubs are full, but there are after-school vendor-provided activities at Lee that are still enrolling. Kula Karate, Groundwork Ukulele, and ATX Ballers are all still accepting students to their programs this semester.



 

Become a Room Rep!



This year we're recruiting 1 parent / caregiver to be the Room Rep for each classroom. This will help lighten the load on the volunteer and also create a more collaborative and supportive environment with the teacher and parent community. Room reps will also work with other room reps in the same grade level where appropriate.





What does a Room Rep do?

  • Act as the liaison between teacher and classroom.

  • Create community and connection within the classroom through communication with other families.

  • Support the teacher in planning and executing classroom parties and activities.

  • Moderate and respond to the classroom chat group.


To volunteer, contact your classroom teacher or sign up online!

EVENT RECAPS

Parent forum Recap

Thank you to the amazing teachers and staff for hosting the Caregiver Forum on last week! This event gave teachers a chance to share information about policies and procedures, answer questions, and welcome families to the year. Most teachers planned to send their presentations out via ParentSquare for anyone who wasn't able to attend in person.

Principal's Coffee

Friday September 1 was the first in a series of events that will take place in the Library the 1st Friday of the month where Principal Sileo and her team will take questions in an open forum and depending on the month may also lead the group in a topic driven discussion.


This month was a great first step in learning about the hard work that has gone into putting together our amazing 2023-2024 Lee Elementary team.
