Attention LCES staff/Students/Parents.
The LCES administration will be planning a surprise retirement party for Sharon Brown-Scott to thank her for her 39 years of service to Caroline County Public Schools.  She did not want anything big and kept saying to not make a big deal about it, but the staff felt she needed to have some celebration to thank her.
>>Not sure if it will stay a surprise but we will try. 
We are planning to have an Open House on Thursday, May 25 in the gym from 2-5 pm, but will be telling her it is the end of the year staff party.
Staff is being asked to bring a dessert or bagged candy to share.  Sharon loves her sweets.
>>>The 5th grade team is putting together a gift card tree.  She is simple and likes the common restaurant gift cards (Chick-fil A, Wawa, Mcdonalds….).  If you would like to donate to the “tree” please do so by way of Ms Taylor the 5th grade chair or give it to the office to forward to Ms Taylor.
