Direct Drive – Send In Your Pledge Cards!

Hello Lawton Families,

Our direct drive is underway! We were excited to kick things off last Thursday at curriculum night. All families received a letter and pledge card in person or mailed to their home.  Thank you to all who have returned pledge cards this first week!

Please take a moment this week to think about your pledge to the Lawton Community. Remember, the many ways the Lawton PTA is able to enrich your child’s school day.  Think of how excited your children become talking about catching spiders at Discovery Park, making masks from around the world, meeting a published Children’s author, balloon tosses at field day, walking to school with their friends. All of these amazing opportunities are made possible through the PTA’s funding. How much are these experiences worth to you and your child? $10.00 a month, $100.00? $5.00 a week, $225.00?, $2.00 a day, $360.00?, $100.00 a month, $1,000.00?  All levels of giving allow us to continue providing our current programs to your children.  Without your support these programs would not be possible.

Take a moment to recall how you have supported Lawton in the past? How much did you put towards holiday trees, wrapping paper, art, auction items, chinook books, and  script?  In the past the PTA was only receiving a portion of your funds.  Now, you have the chance to make all of  your donation go directly to the PTA to support our students!

Review your pledge card this week and make your commitment to enrich our community and our students.

Bingo Night 2010

Bingo CardThe PTA is bringing back Family Bingo Night at Lawton. Parents had their opportunity to win fabulous prizes at last weekend’s Casino Night, and now it’s time for the kids to have some fun too!

Not only can the kids win cool prizes at Bingo, so can their Moms, Dads, brothers and sisters. Prizes will also be awarded to kids and parents for best Rock Star hairdos and outfits.

Don’t be shy. Come early and enjoy a Rockin’ and Rollin’ $5.00 Pizza party at 6:00pm! And you can even add a ceasar salad to your slice for a mere $1 more! To top it off there will also be another great Bake Sale sponsored by our own Lawton parent bakers.

The Bingo games will begin after 6:30pm. And they’ll be called by our new principal Kathy Bledsoe. She’s really looking forward to meeting the Lawton community. You won’t want to miss out on the popular family Bingo night!

But I can’t do all this on my own. In order to pull off this fantastic night of Rock Star Bingo, I need some fabulous volunteers to work for a part of the night.

I am looking for help with the following tasks:

  • 4:30-6:00pm — Set Up Crew
  • 5:45-6:15pm — Direct traffic to park on the playground
  • 6:00-7:00pm — Hand out Bingo cards
  • 6:00-7:00pm — Cashier for dinner and drinks
  • 7:00-8:00pm — Cashier for dinner and drinks(light sales)
  • 6:00-7:00pm — Serve food (pizza, salad and drink)
  • 7:00-8:00pm — Serve food/clean up food area
  • 8:00-8:30pm — Clean up crew

Please include your name and email address when you sign up and send it to Deana Metteer at

Thanks being one of the many reasons why Lawton is such a great school!
