SUPPORT LB PTO WHILE YOU SHOP AMAZON
Don't forget to start from konstella.com/amazon when doing your Amazon shopping this season! And when grocery shopping at McCaffrey's for your holiday meals, remember to hold onto those receipts.  Send the receipts to school in your child's backpack or drop them off in the PTO mailbox in the main office. These easy habits add up to significant funds for our school!

FIFTH GRADE RESIDENCY & PERFORMANCE WITH McCARTER THEATRE 
Our fifth graders were hard at work preparing for and performing their roles in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. Produced by McCarter Theatre and supported by our PTO fund, this fifth grade residency allowed students to work together to create a full performance of an adapted Shakespearean text. Students delved into a classic work of literature, memorized lines and movement, created characters and shared with their families a memorable Shakespearean performance. Thank you to all who helped with this production!
