Please join LPES PTA and Embody Carolina for a special family-specific training on spotting signs and symptoms of eating disorders. The program aims to dispel common myths about eating disorders and inform families about the dangers and realities of these disorders.

Their is a cap of 35 attendees. The event will be held in the media center on Thursday, March 22nd from 5:30-8:30.
Parents, family, and friends! The Laurel Park Penguin Fun Run is here! This week, our fundraiser kicks off for students on tracks 1,3 and 4.
Our partners, Boosterthon, will be on site for the next two weeks bringing fun and excitement that will lead up to our Penguin Run! This will all begin with a pep rally on Monday to introduce students to Boosterthon as well as this year`s theme.... CASTLE QUEST!
Castle Quest is an English castle theme all about bravery. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, your students will learn the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters. Virtues such as Respect, Creativity, and Trustworthiness are just a few of the topics they will learn about when they meet with our Boosterthon team during the week. For a sneak peek of what this theme is about, check out the link below!
After the pep rally, your child will bring home important information about this fundraiser. Be on the lookout for your child`s pledge crown as well as information on how you can register your child at Boosterthon.com. This information will walk you through how to make a pledge as well as what to expect from the Fun Run itself.
It is also important to mention that our school has the opportunity to work together and help schools in need! Through DonorsChoose.org, Boosterthon is donating $100,000 to help classrooms that were hit by the hurricanes in Texas and Florida to rebuild and provide quality education for their students.
Every time an LPES classroom reaches $30 per lap, they’ll donate one dollar to fund classroom projects on behalf of Laurel Park Elementary. To learn more about Boosterthon’s giveback program, check out this blog post.
As we mentioned before, we know that fundraising is never easy. But please know that your efforts truly make an impact for our school. We hope that your children can have fun along the way and look forward to the Fun Run.
Thank you again for supporting Laurel Park! Go Penguins, get ready to storm the Castle!

Laurel Park Movement Group is BACK! Join us this Spring for some morning movement to get your day started right! This group is a before school activity which encourages students to engage in purposeful movement before school hours start. Our coaches will teach how movement and physical activity is instrumental to a positive school day. When we move our bodies, our minds are ready to learn. We will engage in a variety of movement including running, group games, sports, yoga and more. Please wear sneakers each day and bring a water bottle. Limited to 25 participants. No fee; this is brought to you by the LPES PTA Health and Wellness Committee. Grades K-5 welcome.
