Shout Out to Our Substitutes!


An extra special shout-out to the committed substitutes who serve our Leopards long-term, and short-term, both planned ahead and last-minute calls! We especially love seeing our families rise to the occasion of serving to support our littles!


In-Person or Online Book Fair


The Lead Mine PTA and Scholastic are partnering to have an in-person and/or online book fair from November 28th through December 2nd! Each Leopard will have a day to 'browse' the fair - creating a wish list and then a 'buy day'.  The fair will also be open for families to come to browse and buy on Thursday, December 1st from 3:30pm-5:00pm - followed by a winter chorus concert at 5:00pm!

We hope you are able to enjoy this shared time together with your Leopard!



Ms. Peters and Ms. Potts Bring Such Positive Energy to Lead Mine!

Help Ms. Potts give our students fluorescent art materials for an unforgettable science + art collaboration!


*11/29/22 is a 'matching' if you or someone you know would love to donate, keep that date in mind!
