Congratulations to our Volunteer of the Month... Erika Keating!
Erika Keating has one child at LCE, Brynn, who is a fourth grader. She has volunteered in her daughter's classroom every year as a parent volunteer as well as a room mom, ensuring all kids feel welcome and have a great time. She has also helped at several PTA events, as well as served as VP of Events the last two years on the PTA Board. She has put in so much time and energy to our school's family events, giving of her own time! Her husband, Pete, has also given many of his own hours helping at these events. Our LCE kids and families are sure appreciative of such a wonderful volunteer! Thank you Erika!

At our November PTA meeting, we hosted Kristin Foley from the Superintendent's office and Martin Munguia from the Yes Snohomish campaign to hear about the upcoming replacement levies that will be on the February ballot. After hearing about everything this money provides for our schools, the membership unanimously voted to endorse the Yes! Snohomish campaign.

They are having an official campaign kickoff event on Jan. 9, from 5-6 pm at the Snohomish Senior Center.
