LCES Snow Buddies

The holiday season is fast approaching and Lewis & Clark Elementary School would like to help some of our local families. We are hosting our Annual Snow Buddy Program. In the foyer of the school, we have decorated a tree with Snow Buddies. Stop by and take a Snow Buddy from the tree. On it you will find the gender, age, and grade of a child in need. Each Snow Buddy represents one gift. After you purchase an appropriate gift, please return it (unwrapped) to the guidance department.

Make sure you attach the Snow Buddy to the gift!

If you would like your child to be allowed to pick a Snow Buddy off the tree, please write a letter to your child’s teacher and include the age and gender of the Snow Buddy your family would like to adopt.
