Snow Leopard Bonanza

LKMS' Third Annual - "Snow Leopard Winter Break Bonanza"!  Back by popular demand!

The PBIS team would like to celebrate all of our students at Lime Kiln!   Students who are ROARing (being Responsible, Organized, Achieving and Respectful) will be receiving raffle tickets in class for the entire month of December for chances to win prizes. PARENTS/GUARDIANS!  WE NEED YOUR HELP!  We are in search of small prizes that could be raffled off to students on December 22.  Some ideas could include: books your child no longer reads, lotions, ear buds, pop sockets, fidgets, small puzzles, coin purses, scarves, accessories, jewelry, fun school supplies, or gift cards, $5-10 (TuttiFrutti, Target, Chipotle, McDonald's, Chick-fil-A are favorites)!   Students or parents can drop off donated items in the vestibule of our Front Office entrance until December 10.

Thank you so much for your support!  We know the students will be excited for our special “SNOW LEOPARD WINTER BREAK BONANZA!”
