Greetings from the PTA
Dear Lakeview Families,
On behalf of the entire Lakeview PTA Executive Board, I would like to thank each one of you for every moment you have spent supporting one of our beloved family events, volunteering in classrooms, at the school, and at home, participating on various committees and supporting our fundraising efforts. Everything we have accomplished this year is a result of YOU, individuals and families working together to create an incredible learning environment for our ‘Lil Bobcats.
I would also like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to everyone who has played a role in helping Lakeview achieve the School of Excellence designation. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate Lakeview’s 35 years of excellence than earning recognition as a National PTA School of Excellence. We are in the home stretch of completing our application, and I couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to work on this initiative. Our Excellence Team comprised of parents, administrators, and teachers identified our Focus Area to be to “Ensure Health & Safety of Students” with an objective to “support students’ emotional and mental well-being.” At the next membership meeting on Tuesday, April 9, NISD Attorney, Christie Hobbs will educate us about the difference between Bullying & Conflict. This will be part of a month-long parent and student engagement series on kindness, friendship and positive relationships. Be on the lookout for more information coming your way in the next few days.
It is also election time for the 2019-2020 Executive Board. Every year, the nominating committee has the enormous task of putting together a slate of prospective officers for the following year. Please plan to attend our next membership meeting on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at 6:30 pm to vote in next year’s Executive Board.
It has been an honor to serve as your PTA President this year!
With Bobcat Love,
Ann DeCapite President, Lakeview Elementary PTA
