The Leopard Call 
  
Dear Families and Friends of Ladd,
November is a time of thanks.  Thank you first and foremost to our veterans.  We live our daily lives in freedom because of you and we honor you on Veteran's Day for your sacrifice.

I also want to personally thank the PTA and all of the parent volunteers who created a fantastic Fall Festival.  This event was fun for the entire family.  It was also a great fundraiser for PTA and our teacher's club accounts (field trips, snacks, crafts, etc).  

Thank you to everyone for creating a wonderful feeling at Ladd.  There is no place that I would rather be.
