Dear Lake Families, Staff, and Friends,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 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! I, Danielle Overall am this year’s Lake’s PTA President 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: Karen Brandt as Vice President, Tiffany Sharpe as Treasurer, Brittany Elliott as Secretary, and 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 is back by popular demand, and Literacy night! The Art Show, and possibly a STEM night. We hope to do a Valentine’s Day dance this year!
  • Book Fair will be in October with Fall conferences and BOGO book fair in April.
  • Fall fundraiser...we are planning on selling yummy food items.
  • We will continue to save up BOX TOPS!
  • 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 are hoping to do a Santa Shop this year for the kids!
  • Lake PTA puts together a scholarship committee to help selected high schoolers 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 inflatables 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 me we understand not having enough time and the day flies by and there’s so much to do. But our children only have one elementary school experience. Let’s make it AMAZING together!!!
