Letter from the President, Neal Orringer

Dear SLES Community,
We want to thank you for your continued support.  Your PTA dues/donations provide important academic resources to our school, including—

Almost $8500 for teachers & staff to buy additional teaching supplies,
Approximately $6000 for school field trips,
About $4500 for quarterly cultural school assemblies, and
About $2000 towards reading incentives.

We also support the school’s Reflections & cultural arts, science fair, and spelling & geography bee programs.  We also organize great charitable activities, educational advocacy, and fun events such as the Fall Festival, Book Fair, Movie Night, Variety Show, and the Wildcat Jam!

If you have questions about any of these activities or comments, please contact me, Have a great school year. GO WILDCATS!
