5th Grade Campus Beautification Day
Calling all 5th grade families! Please join us for the 5th grade annual campus beautification day on Friday, May 4. Campus beautification day has become a grade-level tradition, and is a joint effort between the LNC 5th grade team, students, parents and Duke Energy, who graciously provides both materials and manpower to help us. Our 5th grade students learn leadership while our campus gets a spring facelift!

Another important way that you can help is by lending us a wheelbarrow, rake or shovel for the day. Parents can begin dropping those materials off on Wednesday, May 2. These materials will be stored against the school wall under the canopy and may be collected by parents on Friday afternoon. Please BE SURE to label your wheelbarrows, rakes and shovels! Please click here to sign up during your student’s teachers’ time slot or to loan us equipment for the day. Thank you in advance for your help!
