Volunteer Appreciation Initiative

Lepac is trying something new for its volunteer appreciation. Instead of waiting until the end of the year for appreciating our wonderful parent/grandparent/caregiver volunteers, there will be a monthly draw of the names of those who were able to volunteer over the past months and the winner will be featured in the Lepac weekly email. So we are looking for donations from our Lochside Community to put together some prize packs. It could be a gift card that you will never use or mugs, hats, bags that you have been given from past events but never used. It is also a way to promote your business for example by donating an hour of your service, or you could bake for someone.

If you have something to contribute to the volunteer gift bags, please contact


Teacher Appreciation

The next teacher appreciation meeting will be held on Thursday at 1:00 on the stage.  Again if you are unable to make it but would like to be involved, please email Stephanie at
