Volunteers Needed for Screen-Free Train

As a part of Wellness Week next week our students will be writing or drawing about an activity that they did instead of spending time watching TV or playing on a device. They will write or draw on a train car called the Screen-Free Train.  FLECC PTA is looking for some parent volunteers who would be able to help hang up the train cars in the hallway to remind students throughout the day the fun that can be had when they’re not behind a screen! Thank you as always for your help!

Hearing & Vision Screenings at Falls-Lenox

With the ECC hearing and vision screenings around the corner, we’re preparing to turn eyes and ears to Falls-Lenox next for screenings October 9th – 12th. We need volunteers to help the event run as smoothly as possible! Assistance is needed in the form of eye doctors, hearing screeners, and volunteers to help students travel to and from the classroom. The day stars at 8a and finishes at 2p. Thanks for all you do!

Yankee Candle Fundraiser Wrapping Up!

Just a reminder the Yankee Candle Fundraiser ends Monday, Sept. 25th! Please send your order forms in with your child – or in lieu of participating in the fundraiser remember you can opt to make a straight out donation at https://donation-in-lieu-of-yankeecandle-fundraiser.cheddarup.com to the PTA!

Used Sports Equipment Drive

Unsure what to do with the sports equipment your kids have outgrown? The Olmsted Falls Lacrosse Association is holding another used sports equipment drive! Research shows that kids who have access to sports do better in school and have an overall higher level of well-being. -but many children face barriers to participating in these sports including the inability to purchase gear and equipment. DoSomething.org and ESPN have put out a call for help and OFLAX is one of many organizations that has answered! From today until Friday, September 29th we will collect gently used gear and equipment to donate to these underserved youth.

When: Donations are due by Friday, September 29th
What: Any gently used sports item, equipment (please no jerseys or shoes)
Where: Drop off locations include:

The last equipment drive collected over 150 items that were delivered and then distributed to kids. We hope that we can beat that record! Please share among other groups and with your friends!

Vision & Hearing Screen Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed for the upcoming vision and hearing screenings at the ECC! The kindergarten and preschool screenings will take place on September 27th, 28th and 29th.  We need help all the way from eye doctors and hearing screeners to volunteers to help students migrate to and from the classroom. The day stars at 8a and finishes at 2p. As always, we appreciate our awesome volunteers!

Hearts for Harvey

In addition to the supply collection, Falls Lenox has adopted Lovett Elementary in Houston (through the Principals with Principles group) and will sell paper hearts for a $1 donation to line the front lobby showing love and support for those affected by the hurricane. Donations will be collected from 7:45-8:10am Wednesday, September 6th – Friday, September 15th.  Our Falls Lenox family hopes to send Wal-mart gift cards using the money raised.

How you can help: we need a volunteer to collect the money and hand out the “hearts” from 7:45a-8:15a each of the eight days. Please sign up with the link below if you’re able! Thank you for your support!
