Volunteers needed for the Robert E. Lee Gardens

RE.Lee_Garden_Entrance

This coming Tuesday morning, November 18, Robert E. Lee Elementary needs 8 people to come dig in the dirt and help Mrs. Flanagan and other volunteers maintain our beautiful organic garden! 

The garden will be receiving a mulch delivery around 9:30 AM. It will need to be distributed to the veggie beds and garden in preparation for cold temps. Uh oh, the cold weather is already here … so you see this is very important!

Please bring a wheelbarrow and/or a rubber mallet if you have one. Thank you!

The ongoing Garden volunteer times take place on Mondays from 9:15-12:15pm. Those of you who have expressed interest in helping during garden lessons, please be advised that if the temperature is below 50, it is raining, or the ground is too soggy due to a recent rainfall, garden time does not take place. If there is any doubt please contact the main office before visiting the campus to help in the garden.

Sign up here.  ** If you have not completed your DISD volunteer training, that is ok for Tuesday, 11/18 … we need bodies! Please check in at the front desk and get badged for the morning.

Learn More about Robert E. Lee Elementary School

We hope you’ll join us at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning,  November 11 for a special program that will highlight Robert E. Lee Elementary School’s academic programs, after-school care programs, awards, and upcoming events. Tours of the school will be offered after a short presentation. Join us at the school’s front yard facing Delmar.

Lee has the highest rating offered by the State of Texas, and there are a number of improvements in facilities, technology, and academics just around the corner. This program gives neighbors an opportunity to learn more about the positive aspects of Lee as well as to demonstrate to city and school officials that the LGNA community supports our neighborhood schools.

DISD Superintendent Mike Miles, DISD Board President Miguel Solis, DISD Board member Mike Morath, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, and Councilmembers Philip Kingston and Adam Medrano will be in attendance. We’ll also meet Lee’s new principal, Bridget Ransom.

National Night Out at Tietze Park Next Week!

NNOTP_Logo-smThis year’s National Night Out at Tietze Park will be Tuesday, October 7 from 5:30-8:00pm.

National Night Out is designed to strengthen community relationship between residents and public service organizations such as police, city departments and charitable organizations that serve the community. This year’s event is hosted by three neighborhood associations – Lower Greenville, Lakewood Heights, and Lowest Greenville West and The Friends of Tietze Park Foundation.

On hand will be police officers to talk to about crime concerns. In addition, we will have exhibits from quality-of-life and charitable organizations. As usual we will have the face painters, hotdogs, musical entertainment, and a bounce house.

This is a great opportunity to have some fun, meet some neighbors, and learn a little something about health and safety. Look for the manila flyer on your doorstep. The event will take the place of our regularly scheduled November LGNA meeting. Be sure to stop by and say hello!
