Dear Parents & Guardians,

The 2015-2016 LeTort school year has begun!  Please join us as we continue to work to make LeTort a great experience for all of our children.

Utilizing feedback and suggestions made by our LeTort families, we have set up events, activities and fundraisers for the school year.  We hope that you will enjoy them!

Simply put, the success of the LeTort PTO depends on the talents, ideas and help provided by parents, guardians and teachers…..working together. We really need you!  There truly is something for everyone to be a part of.  Remember, even if you are unable to come to school during the day, there are many other ways you can help out.  Volunteering for your school is a great way to be involved with your kids, help your community and maybe even establish new friendships.

Please let us know where your interests are and how you would like to be involved.

We look forward to hearing from you and to a great school year!

Sincerely,

The LeTort PTO Team

The “Green” Team:

Cans for Computers:  Our students, along with the LeTort community, donate aluminum cans to our school.  Aluminum is taken to the recycling center and money earned supports technology purchases benefiting LeTort students.

Are cans the only aluminum we collect?  No way! The recycler takes crushed or uncrushed cans.  (Crushed cans involve fewer trips to the salvage center.) Other things besides cans can be dropped off, but all non aluminum screws and the like should be removed if possible.  In the past, items such as dismantled screen doors, aluminum siding, aluminum sheds, and even a hot dog cart have been taken to the recycler.  WOW!

What do you do with the aluminum that you have collected?  Aluminum can be dropped off around the back of the school in the wooded fence area marked “Can Corral”. This area is for aluminum only.  Thank you.

Thank you for transporting the aluminum Mr. Rohm!  For several years now, Mr. Rohm has been the “backbone” of this operation and has kindly volunteered to transport our collection to the recycling center. We greatly appreciate all of his efforts and the support of the community!

Juice Pouches:  Over the past 2 years, LeTort has collected juice pouches to earn money for our school.  We earn $.02 cents for every pouch collected.  Easy stuff!
