There will be another Camo pant sale for the seniors from now through Thursday, August 31st.  Those interested can pick up, fill out and drop off their order forms (along with the check payable to East PTSO for $40) in the East Spirit Shop.  This will be the final opportunity to order these pants.  We do still have Camo bucket hats available as well and the cost for those is $10.

Lakota East’s Environmental Club, known as the LEAF Club, will have its first meeting on Thursday, August 24th after school in room 119. No club card needed.

Students, please remember to turn in your EMF to Guidance or Main Office as soon as possible.

Seniors, you are invited to join the Homecoming Committee! It’s a great way to boost your resume for college applications, to gain some volunteer hours, and most importantly, to help plan East’s 20th Anniversary Homecoming Dance! Join us immediately after school on Tuesday August 22 in room 113.  See Ms. Dennis or Mrs. Schneider if you have any questions.
