Get Involved!

We are looking for a few team players to join the PTSA Executive Board.  Board Members meet once a month to plan activities and advocate for all the students here at Lake Wylie Elementary.  We are specifically looking for a Vice President to help with the upcoming Winter Parade.  Please contact any board member or Ms. Bostwick.


Trunk or Treat!

This is a new event at LWES.  Come to the parking lot at 6:00 p.m. on October 30th and decorate your car or truck with a Fall Theme.  The students will walk the parking lot and collect treats from everyone.  Store packaged treats only and please be aware some of our students do have nut allergies.  There will be prizes for the best decorated vehicles.  Please complete the bottom portion of this page if you are planning on attending.

2014 Sales Tax Referendum – Get out there and Vote!

Winter Parade Committee Meeting!

We are having our first committee meeting for the winter parade on Tuesday, Oct. 14 at 3:00 p.m. in the Media Center.  If you are a parent, business, or just interested in helping out, please come and help us start planning this year’s event.
