Education Matters- February 27, 2023

Education Matters

Dear Families, Colleagues, and Partners in Education:

Families, educators, school leaders, and public education advocates across the country are joining together in celebrating public schools, February 27–March 3; a week designated to highlight and show support for our local public schools.

Public Schools Week 2023 (#PSW23) is part of a larger campaign – #HerefortheKids – one that brings together families, educators, and community members to shine a light on local public schools and share the stories of the positive things happening in classrooms and school buildings nationwide. The teaching and learning in our local K-12 public schools positively impacts students and families, the neighborhoods, and communities they live in, and our nation as a whole. With commitment, creativity, and critical thinking, educators and school leaders continue to provide welcoming and engaging learning opportunities for our children.

Here at LPSS, there are plenty of opportunities to be engaged in your school community. Families can volunteer time or donate money to help with an upcoming school event, join the PTA/PTO, attend a school board meeting, or reach out to school administration and ask for ways you can help. Together, we can provide our students with the high-quality education they deserve while fulfilling our mission of developing productive citizens prepared to compete in a global community.

Please join us in celebrating Public Schools Week by sharing school success stories on social media or simply giving thanks to our dedicated employees next time you see them. Help us show our students the value of a public education and the vital role public schools play in our community.
