David Glasser Athletic Complex Groundbreaking Celebration Scheduled for November 3

Laveen Elementary School District will hold a groundbreaking celebration for the David Glasser Athletic Complex November 3 at 9:00 a.m. The complex will be built on the site of the old Laveen School at 5001 W. Dobbins.

The new athletic complex will include a football/soccer field and two baseball fields. It will serve the various youth ball clubs of Laveen.

The complex is named in honor of fallen Phoenix Police Officer David Glasser who was killed in the line of duty in 2016 while responding to a burglary call within the Laveen community.

The public is invited to this special event. We ask those attending to R.S.V.P. at the link below for planning purposes.

Laveen Raises $7,213 To Benefit Mexico Earthquake Recovery

Students and staff in the Laveen Elementary School District raised $7,213 to support recovery efforts for Mexico’s devastating earthquake. The funds were raised through a Dress Down Day fundraiser held on September 29.

For $1, students were permitted to dress out of uniform and staff members could dress in business casual attire. All eight schools and district departments participated. Parents and community members also made donations.

The idea came from Brittney Downs, a third grade teacher at Paseo Pointe — the district’s dual language immersion school. The school was celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month and students were researching various Spanish speaking countries when the earthquake struck.

“In the midst of our efforts to celebrate these cultures, Mexico was hit by a tragedy.  Helping will connect our students to the Mexican people in a way that goes deeper than just studying their culture,” Downs explained. “What better way to honor them than to lend a helping hand in a time of need?”

She pitched the idea to district superintendent Dr. Bill Johnson who was immediately on board with the idea. “We have so many students who have family members in Mexico. I’ve been asking staff to think of ways in which we can show our support to our families impacted by this tragedy. This district-wide effort allows students, staff, and our entire Laveen community to help many of our neighbors and friends.”

“I think all people, children included, know and feel the benefits when they help others.  When we fill other people’s buckets, our buckets are getting filled too,” Downs said. “I hope our fundraiser reflects our hearts for loving our neighbor- in our classrooms, in our community, and all over the world. I hope the students are empowered to a lifetime of serving others.”

The money will be sent to GlobalGiving which provides critical resources such as housing, medical aid, water, and emotional support.

Laveen Schools Move to E-Flyers

Beginning in August 2017, Laveen schools will utilize Peachjar’s e-flyer system to distribute flyers, newsletters, and other student-centered information to parents.

E-mail blasts containing flyers from your child’s school, PTO, or non-profit student-centered activities will be sent to parents generally once a week. Flyers are maintained on a dedicated webpage for later reference.

Only school information such as school newsletters, event flyers, and PTO happenings as well as approved flyers from non-profit child-centered organizations such as Girl Scouts, ball leagues, and local community groups will be sent to the email addresses on file for each family. Parents should make sure their school office has their current email address.

Parents may sign up for a free Peachjar account to utilize added features, like combining schools. But, this is not necessary to receive flyers.

Visit www.laveeneld.org/e-flyers for more information.
