LCES Updates 6/15/20: Summer Reading Challenge, School Supply Orders & more!



"Commander Sloan" gathered the "troops" and gave them their orders (directions & guidance) before the coordinated item retrieval and curbside pick up.Together, this unit successfully distributed approximately 700 bags of student materials over two scheduled days. We also collected hundreds of library books and many patrol belts and other items. Well done troops! At ease!

School Supply Orders

The PTA is offering parents the convenient services of pre-packaged supply kits.This service by The Write Stuff ensures your child/children have the school supplies they need next year without having to run to five different stores to find them. This year, our sales will benefit the Lees Corner PTA.

Each kit contains exactly what is on your child’s supply list.

Supplies can be ordered using the link below

Due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID situation, all school supplies will be sent directly to the child's home address and a shipping fee will apply. Orders can be placed now until July 15th.

If you have questions please contact Elaine Chen at

Yearbook Update--ICYMI

The GREAT news is that we will have a wonderful yearbook that truly captures what learning and growing in the 2019-2020 school year was like at Lees Corner and during Distance Learning!

We had hoped the yearbooks would be ready for distribution during curbside pickup, but the printing and delivery has been delayed due to COVID-19. We will share more information with you when we have it. 

Now we have ANOTHER great thing to look forward to!
