December 2018 Volunteers of the Month

Amber Hicks and Laurie Brandon

Holiday Shoppe Co-chairs

LCE PTO Volunteers of the Month for December 2018 are Amber Hicks and Laurie Brandon, the dynamic duo behind the Holiday Shoppe!

These ladies have been working non stop for the past few months shopping, creating, wrapping and organizing everything to make our Holiday Shop a magical adventure for our students! We are so thankful for all your hard work and dedication not only for chairing the holiday shop, but for everything else you do for LCE 🐾 Thank you ladies for helping to bring the holiday cheer to our school! 

A little about Amber:  We moved here 4 years ago from Cleveland, Ohio to join our family who lives here in Jupiter as well. I left a career working at American Greetings headquarters in Business Development and assistant buying to support my husbands family business and expansion in Florida. I became a stay at home mother "for now" volunteering till my son no longer thinks I'm cool to be
We wanted to be apart of this school so we made it happen! The people working for this school are such hard workers and it shows! I wanted to contribute and be apart of it.

A little about Laurie:  I have three amazing children here at Limestone, grades 3, 1, & K.  We are enjoying Limestone and I love having all three kids at one school finally. 

Community is a big deal to me.  A great community that works together to greater the quality of life for others is what I strive to achieve not only for us parents, but for our youth as well.  By volunteering once in a while, I get to be a part of helping the quality of our school, getting to know the kids that my kids spend most of their week with, meet amazing people such as yourselves, and I am able to show our youth that a little bit of time given to help others can go a long way in achieving great things!  For me, volunteering for Limestone is my way of helping to keep our kids "school community" (that they spend most of their time in) a safe, fun, and successful environment.

Thank you, Amber and Laurie, for your dedication to our school and for putting together such a fun shopping experience for our kids!  We appreciate you!

October 2018  

Scarlett Chan, Kerrie Rhoades, and Erin Carter Pansolli

Monster Dash Co-chairs

LCE PTO Volunteer of the Month for October 2018 is a trio of fantastic ladies who are the co-chairs of this year's Monster Dash fundraiser.  A big thank you to Scarlett Chan, Kerrie Rhoades, and Erin Carter Pansolli.

Monster Dash is the biggest PTO fundraising event of the year and these ladies  are responsible for all the FUN and FUNDS associated with this event!  Without the effort of this team, our school would not be able to fund many of the special projects and initiatives that make Limestone Creek so amazing!

Scarlett Chan - "I am the proud Mother of 2 active boys, my oldest son is a kindergartener at LCE and my younger son is in preschool.  I enjoy being outdoors and staying active with my boys.  Volunteering for their schools has given me an opportunity to give back to the school and stay involved in their education.  Fundraising has always been a passion of mine and I’m thrilled to be given the opportunity to help LCE reach its fundraising goals. I look forward to the upcoming year and supporting our teachers, administration and staff."

Kerrie Rhoades - "I am a proud parent of two LCE boys who are in the 3rd & 1st grades. I learned the value and importance of volunteering and giving back from my parents and hope to instill those same values in my sons. LCE's teachers' and administrations' unparalleled dedication to our students' and school's success is second to none. I love LCE and our LCE community. Co-chairing the walk-a-thon is my way of saying thank you to our teachers and administration and expressing my gratitude for all that they do for my children."

Erin Carter Pansolli - "I'm the proud stepmom of 2 boys at Limestone - Cole (4th grade) and Dylan (1st grade.) I enjoy volunteering as it gives me the opportunity to give back to the school that provides so much for our boys! I first co-chaired Walk-A-Thon last year and really enjoyed the challenge of running such a large and important event for the school. There's so many things to be done leading up to it, but the best part is watching the kids have a blast and seeing the donations be used to do exciting new things at the school!!"

Thank you, ladies, we appreciate you!  Enjoy the PTO parking spot for the month of October!

September 2018 - Volunteer of the Month

Karin Slazinski - Cougar Shop

A huge giant thank you to volunteer extraordinaire, Karin Slazinksi, who is charge of the Cougar Shop.  This is a huge task that requires excellent organization and takes countless volunteer hours.  Boxes and boxes of Cougar shirts invaded Karin's home this summer and her whole family helped with picking and packing orders to make sure everything was ready for pickup the week before school. 

Thank you, Karin!  We appreciate you and thank you for your service to our school. 

In appreciation for your service, please enjoy the PTO Parking spot for the month of September!

August 2018 - Volunteer of the Month

Aly McKee

Aly's Amazing Contributions

No doubt, the very first thing students, families, and staff will notice when entering Limestone Creek Elementary this year is the new breathtaking ocean mural that is painted on the walkways.  This was done in the heat of summer by the very talented parent volunteer, Aly McKee.

Aly also repainted our Courtyard Map and made it beautiful.  It's fun to see parents having lunch with their children and calling out states for their kids to run to. 

Thank you, Aly, for sharing your talents and time making our school beautiful!
