Angel Tree Time!

As shared yesterday, our annual Angel Tree drive started this week.  Mrs. Stanley is once again heading up this heartfelt project of love our campus annually participates in to assist Manna House with holiday needs.  Helping our learning community and friends in need remains a major part of who we are at LME; this project is certainly no exception.

Each “angel” on the tree will have a clothing need angel-treeor special gift request for a local child or senior citizen.  You are welcome to choose one angel or several depending on your preference.  Permission slips for participation went home on Monday this week, but the office has more if you need one (let your classroom teacher know you need another).  Once the permission form is given to Mrs. Stanley, your child may choose an angel.  Please send the “angel” attached to the unwrapped item no later than December 6th.  Also, if you are willing to purchase a larger item (electronics, bicycle, etc.), please contact Mrs. Stanley for these specific arrangements.

As always, we appreciate the overflowing response of gifts, talents, service, and especially love when we participate in selfless acts of kindness on behalf of others in need.  These valuable lessons learned at an early age garner greater acts of loving kindness in the future.  Thank you for assisting us in creating altruistic lifelong learners and leaders for the future!  🙂

STAND UP for the hungry!

Our Student Honor Council and their special guest, Kayleigh, spoke to us during Miller Rally today about our 6th Annual LME Food Drive.  Traditionally, we spend the month of November StuCo13-14collecting non-perishable food items to share with our local Manna House, a MISD community problem solving project started by 8th graders many years ago.  Kayleigh is assisting us this year specifically because one of her passions is making certain no one goes hungry in our community.

We encourage everyone to round up your canned and boxed food items all next week (Nov. 4 – 8) and bring them to your homeroom class.  Mrs. Stanley, LME counselor, reminds everyone to, “please check the expiration dates on your food products.”  Additionally, StuCo is challenging classes by offering a special “Scooby Doo and Popcorn Too” incentive for the six top classes, one from each grade level.  Let’s all do our part to STAND UP for the hungry in our own community!
