  • Landisville PTO News: Indian Echo, Gertrude Hawk, Family Fun Night and More...

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 2/15/2019 12:00:00 PM

    Dear LPC families,

    It’s a busy time for the Landisville PTO.  Please see below for upcoming events and fundraisers:

    Indian Echo Caverns--today through Monday, February 18

    The Landisville PTO has again joined with the Indian Echo Caverns for a Presidents’ Weekend fundraising event! Visit the Caverns at any time from February 15 - 18, please bring this linked flyer (a paper copy was also sent home with students this week) or mention the Landisville PTO and 20% of your ticket price will go to the Landisville PTO.

    Guided tours will take place every 25 minutes from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. each day through the amazing and awe-inspiring on-site limestone caverns. Your children (and you) will truly enjoy this experience!

    Gertrude Hawk Candy Sale--orders due Monday, March 4

    Gertrude Hawk packets should have home this week. Things are a little different this year, in that the included flyer only features Gertrude Hawk's best sellers. If you would like to see the full catalog and/or place an order online, please email me at lpcptomom@gmail.com and I will send you the information. Thanks!

    Family Fun Night--Friday, March 8 (RSVPs due Monday, March 4)

    Join us for a night of magic with Erick Hershey! Calling upon over 30 years of professional performance, Erick Hershey presents amazing illusions with upbeat country charm. His “Country Conjuring Magic!” is fun, engaging magic, full of laughter, and suitable for all ages. From close-up impossibilities performed an assistant’s hands, to bright, interactive stage mysteries, his magic warmly involves the audience, creating a shared experience of “Honest Deceptions”.

    We are excited to offer this year’s show free of charge to our LPC/LIC students and their families. However, please RSVP via the form sent home with your student and return to the school no later than Monday, March 4th, so we can reserve your spot.  There will again be two show times: 5:30-6:15 p.m. and 6:45-7:30 p.m. The shows will be the same, so please choose just one. Due to capacity limitations, there is only seating for 300 people at each show; you will be required to check in at the door prior to the show that you choose.

    Isaac’s Dine Out in conjunction with Family Fun Night--Friday, March 8

    As we no longer serve dinner at the school as a part of Family Fun Night, the Landisville PTO has organized an extra dine out on Friday, March 8th at the Mount Joy Isaac’s (next to where Darrenkamp’s used to be).  Grab dinner at Isaac’s before or after the show, show your flyer (to be distributed closer to the date), and Isaac’s will generously donate 25% of the cost of your meal back to our schools.

    Additional Dates to Remember:

    • Monday, March 4--all day: Domino’s Dine Out at the Nissley Road location.  No flyer needed.
    • Tuesday, March 12--7:00 p.m.: PTO Meeting
    • Tuesday, April 2--5:00-9:00 p.m.: Hot Z Pizza Dine Out
    • Monday, April 29--5:00-8:00 p.m.: Scoops Dine Out

    • Thursday, May 30--7:00 p.m.: PTO Meeting
    • Monday, June 3--all day: Isaac’s Dine Out at the Centerville location

    If you have any questions, please contact us at lpcptomom@gmail.com.

    Thank you for your continued support!

    • THANK YOU to all families whom have been able to offer Food for the JK Mechanical Food Drive for Hempfield Families. We will continue to collect food during February with our Fill A Bucket With Food Round Two Campaign.  Any canned or boxed items you can donate are greatly appreciated!!! While the Food Pantry appreciates any donation, the items most used and appreciated include: canned fruits, vegetables, soups, pasta, applesauce, instant potatoes, peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti sauces, macaroni and cheese, tuna and cereal. Thanks again for your consideration and donations to benefit the Hempfield Food Pantry!
    • We have seen an increase in absences since the beginning of the year. Parents, please remember to complete an excuse form within three days of your child’s absence, which follows the state expectations for reporting/recording excused absences. Doctor’s notes are required after three or more consecutive days and after ten cumulative days. Pre-approved absence forms should be completed a week or two before the planned educational trip. In an effort to avoid receiving unexcused absence letters, while the excuse is possibly still in the backpack, feel free to send electronic copies of the excuse to the classroom teacher and office staff ladies: bettylou_seitz@hempfieldsd.org and  barbara_grier@hempfieldsd.org   
    • Attention parents of Kindergarten students! The State of Pennsylvania mandates a physical exam for all students entering school. The School Doctor is coming to LPC on Friday, March 1.  If you have received paperwork from the school nurse indicating that your student needs a physical and are in need of assistance, please contact the school nurse at 717-459-5282, to set up an appointment.  
    • Volunteers are needed in the cafeteria click here to sign up.
