Thank you to everyone who came to International Culture Night!  It was a great turn out and absolutely amazing to see so many of the cultures in our Einstein community represented.  Einstein is a very special place.

If you have pictures you want to add please email communications@einsteinptsa.org and we will add them.  You can also upload pictures to the yearbook.  

Gatherings like last night are not possible without all the volunteers who worked hard to make it possible. Thank you to Marcela and Lisa who organized everything ahead of time so the night went smoothly.  Thank you to all the families who set up booths, cooked amazing food, and shared their culture.  Thank you to all the students who bravely preformed for a very large crowd!

Pi Day!!! - Treat our Amazing Einstein Staff with Pies

Help us make Pi Day (Thursday, March 14) special for our Einstein Staff by bringing in a store bought or homemade pie!

Pies can be dropped off before school and will be delivered to the Staff Lounge for the teachers to enjoy and celebrate all day. (There is usually a sale on pies at the grocery stores right around pi day.  

If you choose to make a pie, please be sure to clearly mark all ingredients. If you bring your pie in a re-usable container, please be sure to clearly label your dish so it can be reunited with you after the event. 

Thank you so much for helping support Einstein staff!

Albert Einstein is having its annual Science Expo on Thursday, March 21, 2024. The Expo is a family event for everyone. 
The purpose of the Expo is to promote interest, enthusiasm, and creativity in the field of science. Public viewing and hands on activities will be available at the Expo for enjoyment and learning for the whole family.
Students in grades K-5 are invited to display a project using the attached guidelines. Submitting student projects is voluntary.

 Attending the event does NOT require submission of a project. However, if your student would like to display their scientific learning, the attached documents include a Q & A, parent letter, and guidelines for those who want to participate by displaying at the Expo an experiment or research project.

Students can also access the guiding documents in hard copy form by asking their classroom teacher to make copies for them or picking up a packet from the front office or the library.

If you have any additional questions, please email them to Linda Johnson at lkjohnson@lwsd.org.
