From the PTO
Welcome L-E Families! ¬†The Lincoln-Eliot PTO is in the process of creating an online and printed directory for parents to contact other parents, as well as teachers and other L-E staff during the school year.¬†The software that we are using (‚ÄúMy School Everywhere‚ÄĚ) is also used by many of the Newton schools.
Only the members of our school community will have access to this information. ¬†Please use the link below to create an account for your child/children. ¬† ¬†Please enter ONLY the information that you would like recorded in the online and printed versions of the School Directory.
You can create the account here: Create Account
Once your account has been approved, you will receive a link to gain access to the Directory. ¬†At this point, you can verify and edit your entry if needed.
You will also be able¬†to visit the “Sign Up” tab, and¬†see what community building and fundraising events we have planned for the year.
The ‚ÄúSign Up‚ÄĚ can also be accessed here: Sign Up
You can use this tab to sign up for many of our volunteer opportunities! ¬†Remember – these events can only happen if we have members to help organize them. ¬†Please consider volunteering!
Participation in the Directory is purely voluntary. ¬†Please contact Andrea Hemment with any questions you might have (firstname.lastname@example.org).
On behalf of the 2016-17 Lincoln-Eliot PTO, we wish you and your family¬†a fantastic year!
