General PTA Meeting – April 24, 6:30pm

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

Kindergarten – Jumpstart, August 18 – 22

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.
