Thursday April 24 is the Lawton Elementary PTA General Meeting. This meeting is where you elect new officers and approve a budget for the 2014-15 school year. PTA Board openings for election are Co-President, Co-Vice President, Secretary, Cashier, and Communications (2).
We will also discuss the results of our recent survey regarding fundraising preferences and present a strategy for the coming school year. The 2014-15 budget will then be presented for membership approval. The board has proposed keeping funding at the same level as 2013-14 ($144,000) but is considering a new approach to achieving this goal.
The meeting will be from 6:30-7:30 in the Lawton Library. Childcare will be available for Lawton students and potty-trained, preschool-age siblings.
Anyone can attend the meeting and participate in the discussion but only PTA members can vote.
Anson Fatland and Carrie Wheeler
Lawton PTA Co-Presidents
Please join us for the Musical Presentation by the Kindergarten classes on Friday May 16th from 6:00-7:00pm. Please have students arrive by 5:45pm and contact Kirsten Dumo (link to email@example.com) with any questions or to volunteer to help.
This summer, Lawton will again be offering Jumpstart for our incoming Kindergarten students. This year we will be offering Jump Start: August 18-22 in the mornings.
Last summer we were one of 33 schools participating with overwhelmingly positive results from parents and students. Students felt more connected to their schools, parents and guardians were able to begin to form relationships with school personnel, and teachers were able to model school behaviors that inspired children to start school with joy and excitement.
If your student will be joining Lawton for Kindergarten, we hope you are able to join us for this week in August.

Have you ever experienced the frustration of trying to tear open a Gogurt tube? Ended up wearing an applesauce container? Stood in front of recycling, compost and garbage bins and wondered “what goes where”?
Your kids probably have!
And the lunchroom staff could use a hand, helping them out. If you could spare an hour to open containers, excuse students to recess after they have eaten, and wipe down tables, please sign-up by clicking on the link below.
