WELCOME BACK LPES LIONS! 2017-2018 A Letter from the PTA President Heather Nixon
Greetings Linkhorn Lion Families and Friends: You don’t have to be Great to Start…but you have to Start to be Great…(author unknown) WHERE HAS THE SUMMER GONE? My name is Heather Nixon, and I am your new PTA President for the next 2 years. I have volunteered at LPES for the last 4 years, and just finished up my 2 year Presidency term at Virginia Beach Middle School. Although I am a bit tired, I accepted this new 2 year term at Linkhorn Park Elementary with the hopes of extending my talents and expanding my exceptional team. There is NO I in TEAM. If you have ANY thoughts about helping our PTA Team this year…even if only by a thought or concern…or by volunteering, PLEASE email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have quite a few new events that will occur this school year…and on our PTA Page, I have listed all the information concerning: Membership, Sponsorship, Volunteering, Box Tops, Reflections, Spirit Nights, Papa John’s 4.0 Program, and ALL our PTA Meeting dates. Please refer to this page concerning these items located on the LPES Website. Go to Parents and scroll down to PTA. NOTE: A copy of our PTA Membership Form is on the back of this letter, so that you may fill it out and bring it in at Open House: Thursday, August 31st at 3-4pm OR 6-7pm:) The monies that the LPES PTA collects either through Membership, Donation, Sponsorship or Fundraisers help fund assemblies, field trips, science and P.E. equipment, teacher supplies…and MUCH MORE! A few NEW exciting events for this year are: FIT VB RUN, The Screenagers Film…The Impact of Technology on Development, Daddy/Daughter & Mother/Son Dance with Classroom Basket Auction…and our Oldies but goodies…Pumpkin Palooza, Winter Wonderland, Shamrock Final Mile, Movie & PJ Party…We are STILL looking for help with making these events AMAZING:)
I hope to make this year, as well as the next, a friendly and amazing experience for you and your student(s), and I look forward to meeting each and everyone of you at our LPES Open House on Thursday, August 31st at either the 3-4pm or 6-7pm time frame.
A great attitude becomes a great mind, which becomes a great day, which becomes a great year, which becomes a great life…(author unknown)
