The LFA wants to welcome all new and returning families to Leman. We’re hopeful for a fun and exciting year and we’ll strive to support you on your journey with us.
By default, every Leman family is already a LFA member but we would like to encourage anyone who has time, is resourceful, wants to be informed first hand of current events or simply wants to get involved to become an active member. Everyone is encouraged to participate. The more the merrier!
Once the classes have gotten settled in, teachers will be asking for one volunteer homeroom parent to be the class parent leader. This person will be in charge of being the voice for class parents and the LFA . This person would be working with us to better communicate the interest for all families in the class. We consider this person our ambassador. They can assist teachers with classroom functions organizing parties, reminders etc... (thats of course, to be determined per teacher basis).
Once this new form of communication is established, we will decommission the existing LFA Wechat group this year for the LFA. It is too large to address specific class needs , contains a number of people who are no longer at the school and doesn't have the capacity for new members. It's also part of a drive to better protect the contact information and privacy of our parents. The current Wechat will be retired effective September 10th. We encourage parents to read the newletters that gets emailed weekly for whole school news. By working through the class parent leaders and the class WeChat, we hope to strengthen school to home communication and the community of class parents.
The LFA will be hosting a Coffee Morning for all new families. The date will be posted in next week's newsletter. This will be an opportunity for all parents to learn more about the LFA. It will also be an opportunity for new families to connect with LIS veterans. Once more welcome to Leman and thank you for being part of us.
