Our Village is Strong:
Get to know your school community, Las Palmas Meet and Eat offers or families an opportunity to get together outside the hectic routine of drop-offs and pick-ups. This event is an arrangement with the restaurant to donate a percentage of eligible sales to Las Palmas PTA, which in turn helps support our AMAZING school.
How can I make sure a percentage of my bill is donated to the school?
Identify yourself as a participant in the fundraiser for Las Palmas Elementary School PTA. Sometimes, just saying so is enough, but often the flier you receive sent home with the kids, which is usually also linked to the website, is required.
Is Family Night Out limited to Las Palmas students?
No, anyone can participate. Make copies of the flier for friends, neighbors, grandparents, etc. Extras are available in the office, or you can send a digital one from the website www.HolaLasPalmas.org.

Las Palmas’ biggest fundraiser is Friday, March 8th. Mark your calendars, and plan to cheer on your runner(s). This major fundraiser supports programs we don’t want to do without: STEAM lab, Chromebooks, math and science technology, art, music, P.E., field trips, and more. In addition to continuing these vital programs, this year we are taking our Pipers GLOBAL. As we work to establish a sister school in a Spanish speaking country, we will add literature, cultural programs and assemblies that will expand Pipers’ world view. To support these programs, we will enhance our gathering spaces with a revitalized Multipurpose room, a new outdoor garden platform, and an imagination station. These efforts will improve Pipers creative problem solving, communication and collaboration skills, building a foundation for academic and social success...on a global level.
We are in PHASE ONE of Jog-A-Thon fundraising: Business & Family Sponsorships. Forms will go home the week of January 14th, and must be returned by Monday, February 11th. Extra copies are in the office, or online here. If you have questions about Sponsorships, contact Erica Zalewski at LPsponsorship@gmail.com
Sponsorship is a way for businesses and families to support the entire school. Sponsors receive broad exposure and several perks, and every student in any family bringing in a business or family sponsorship is invited to a pizza and Wii dance party with Principal Barrosa.
Information on Jog-A-Thon PHASE TWO (student/lap pledges) will be sent out in February. If you would like to get more involved with Jog-A-Thon or have overall questions about the Jog-A-Thon, contact Anissa Bromley Flesher (mailto:Jog.A.Thon@holalaspalmas.org) or (310) 529-3589.
Thank you to our 2018 Jog-A-Thon Business and Family Sponsors!!!!
FREE Spanish Class for LP Parents
Start Date: Friday January 11th at 8:30 am (right after assembly)
Where: St. Clements' Episcopal Church (across from the school)
Classes will be every Friday at St. Clements. It's a Spanish 1 class perfect for those parents that took Spanish in high school and haven't been using it on a regular basis or for those that have never been in a formal class. The class is very conversational and parents will learn how to conjugate verbs and understand grammar concepts while we talk. There's no need to purchase a text book. They just need to bring a notebook and a pen. Spanish materials will be shared with the parents.
Have a great weekend!
