Elvehjem Neighborhood Association is excited to adopt LVM Elementary school again for the 2017-2018 school year!

Classroom Restock Drive coming soon!
As we reach the middle of the school year, many classroom supplies are starting to dwindle. Let’s work together to restock the classrooms so the teachers can get through the school year without having to dig into their own pockets. Donations can be dropped off in the front ofﬁce at LVM.
Book Room Volunteers Needed
Help is needed on a regular basis to re-shelve books in the book room when students are finished with them. Please contact Amy Kane if you are able to volunteer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Classroom Helpers and Reading Buddies Needed
If you would like to help out on an ongoing basis in the classrooms or reading with students please contact Amy Kane at email@example.com.
Save your Box Tops!
Collect Box Tops for the PTO to support their ongoing fundraising efforts. Box Tops can be dropped off in the marked mailbox just inside the front doors of LVM.
Negative Lunch Accounts Fundraiser Results: Many students started off the school year with a negative lunch account balance carried over from last year for a combined total of $1688.46. Together we raised $575 to put towards the negative balance and help ease the burden on families in need; thank you to everyone who sent in a contribution!
