We have such an amazing, talented, generous LES community. If you have a talent or interest to share with students, please consider a club. The PTO will help you to get it up and running. Your main responsibilities will be to be present during club activities and identify some sort of "curriculum" or goals you wish to accomplish! After your club is up and running, you will really only have about an hour and a half commitment each week (for most clubs).
We have talented bakers, yoga lovers, engineering experts, gardeners, musicians, chess players, foreign language speakers, sports enthusiasts and more at LES!
Share your passions with the students!

To register for Pay 4 School Stuff (P4SS) see below
Over the summer, the LES PTO researched and approved implementing a new online payment processing system - Pay4SchoolStuff (P4SS), a local company out of Falls Church, VA. P4SS includes customizable features, excellent customer service, and is user-friendly for parents. This process was created based on feedback from previous Activities registrations. By moving online, we hope to lessen the amount of volunteers needed to staff sign-ups and provide you with a more flexible and convenient payment option.
Cash, check, and credit card payments will still be accepted for Spiritwear, Movie Afternoons, Monster Mash, Bingo, and fundraising opportunities.
