Dear Lake Families, Staff, and Friends,
 
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! The PTA team is very excited for all the fun events, fundraisers and mostly bringing our community together for our amazing Lake kids! Brittany Elliott and Danielle Overall are this year's Lake PTA Co-Presidents, but like everything else, we can't do it without a great team and support so a huge thank you to the rest of our Board: Chris Partlow as Treasurer, Jessica Thellman as Secretary, Kimberly Jones as LCC Delegate, and of course our parents, families, staff and friends for your time and help.
 
This year, our goal is to have great events and programs for the children! Of course, that means there will be fundraising to help support these events and programs. We would love to increase parental involvement and getting you more of the info on what PTA needs and does by keeping the PTA website updated, utilizing email, Facebook, Twitter, flyers and the school newsletter to keep you updated!
 
Before getting involved with PTA, we had NO IDEA how much PTA actually does for our school. So I would like to take a moment and explain some of our plans for this exciting upcoming year!
  • We will kick off the year with Ice Cream Social!
  • Family food nights will start in August with Dairy Queen. Our goal is to have one once a month.
  • Family Fun Nights will start in September with Kickball, BINGO will be back by popular demand, and Literacy Night as well! We have ideas for a family Zumba night, a STEM night, and possibly a Reflections night.
  • Book Fair will be in October with Fall Conferences and the BOGO Book Fair in April.
  • We are super excited to try a new fall fundraiser called MUMKINS!
  • Boo Bash is back!
  • We will continue to save up Box Tops and Three For Me to show off our volunteers!
  • PTA shows appreciation for our awesome Lake staff first in the summer for the custodians, dinner for teachers during fall conferences, and then we shower them with gifts and food for a week in May.
  • We put together a Holiday Book Exchange and are looking for fresh ideas for Santa Shop.
  • Lake PTA puts together a scholarship committee to help selected high school seniors with college money (so cool, right?).
  • We will celebrate parents and families with VIP Breakfast!
  • We will have fun assemblies and, who can forget the popular field day inflatable and popsicles!

We are very open minded and love hearing any new ideas or suggestions, so please feel free to share your thoughts!

See, we told you PTA does so much and there could be so much more if we had more volunteers! Trust us, we understand not having enough time and they day flies by with so much to do, but our children only have one elementary school experience. Let's make it AMAZING together!
 
Sincerely,
Lake PTA
