Hello Loring Families!

The 2023 Square 1 Art Fundraiser has begun! Your student has worked hard in art class to create a special, art masterpiece that you may purchase on unique gifts & keepsakes to enjoy for a lifetime! Every order placed helps provide additional funding to our amazing PTO.

Your child was sent home with their unique order form (including free stickers!) last week. All orders must be placed no later than April 7th.

NEW THIS YEAR: Square 1 Art has moved to ONLINE ORDERS ONLY with products shipping directly to your homes. (Do not send cash or check to the school).

Lunch and Recess Volunteers Needed! 5th Grade Help Needed TOMORROW

3/29/2023 12:05 pm

We are in need of someone for 5th TOMORROW.

The teachers and staff have expressed many times how helpful it was to have this time to meet and focus on planning. Our volunteer numbers have declined recently and there are still a number of unfilled spots, particularly for grades 3-5. We would love to keep giving the teachers this planning time, so if you are able to sign up for a shift, please do. Covering the 25 minutes of recess is the priority but staying for the 25 minute lunch immediately following is even better!

We are looking for 2 volunteers per grade on Tuesdays and Fridays. Dates and times are listed in the signup genius on the volunteer page of the PTO Website.  To SIGN UP, please click here.
