Dear Lindsey Parents:
The start of the school year is always an exciting time! As PTSA President and on behalf of the Lindsey Elementary PTSA board, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of you to the 2016-2017 school year. The PTSA has been hard at work this summer, planning and fine tuning the many programs and activities that will make this year an amazing year for our children. Listed below are a few important items as well as upcoming events to mark on your calendar:
- Membership: We invite you to join Lindsey PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association)! Not only will you be a part of the largest child advocacy organization in the country, you will also be enabled to vote at Lindsey PTSA membership meetings and obtain access to the school directory. With your membership you receive a card with discounts from more than 6,000 major retailers.
- Volunteer: Giving just a little of your time makes a big difference, especially to your kids; they love seeing parents, family members and friends at their school! There are so many opportunities to help throughout the year, including daytime and evening. In order to volunteer you must complete your background check, so please visitallenisd.org to proceed.
- School Shirts – The school shirts are required to be worn on all field trips. Please pick up your school shirt or an order form if we do not have your size in stock. Shirts may be purchased for $10, payable via cash or check.
- Popcorn Thursdays- For just $10, you will receive gourmet, gluten free, peanut free popcorn once per month for the entire school year (except December)! You are more than welcome to purchase additional bags and give as a gift to siblings, grandparents or even your mail carrier!
Fall Picnic -- Friday, October 21, 5:00-7:00 pm: All Lindsey families are invited to this fun filled FREE event, which will feature a turbo slide, monster basketball and football, rock wall, bungee jump and a mega obstacle course! We will also have pumpkins to paint, a food truck, DJ, face painting, balloon twisting and much more!
This is just the beginning. We have a calendar packed full of great events for this year!
Please don’t hesitate to contact me or any of the PTSA board if you have any questions or just want to share an idea. I look forward to seeing everyone throughout the year. Until then, enjoy the last days of summer!
Lindsey PTSA President
