A welcome message from your PTA President...
Greetings fellow Lone Stars!! This is my first welcome letter as the incoming PTA President and I am very excited about the school year! First, I want to warmly welcome all new incoming families to Lindsey. I remember back to my family’s first year at Lindsey and I can’t believe my youngest is now entering 2nd grade. Time really does fly by! It seems like yesterday we were worrying about new kindergarten teachers, school supply lists, and wondering if our neighborhood school was going to be a good experience or not. All of my concern was soon washed away as we became part of one of the best communities of families, teachers and staff in all of Allen ISD.
The Lindsey PTA is an integral part of the Lindsey school family. Not only do we host fun events during the school year, such as Fall Festival, Math Night, and an Ice Cream Social, but we also provide funds and volunteers for our teachers, students, and staff. We will have two major fundraisers during the year, a Fun Run and a Spring Event. We raised over $10,000 last year during our Fun Run, putting money in the hands of our teachers to help fund our field day, James Wand- Operation Bully Free, Kidz Science Safari, the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center visit, and more. Our 2nd largest fund raiser is our Spring Event. This is a fun family event you will not want to miss. This event helps to fund our Fall Festival and such.
All of this takes the hard work and dedication of our parent and community members. Each one of us has different skills, talents, and resources that are desperately needed to make Lindsey what it is. For some, it is volunteering in the school. For others, it is heading up or joining a committee that brings something special to our students. We all want the very best education and experience for our children, and that is why we must all individually do whatever we can to make it happen. We would love for our community to come together and support our great school in any way possible. Even 1 hour of time is worth so much. Please get involved and meet your neighbors. You will not regret it!
Please join me, the PTA board, and our entire community as we embark on the quest to ensure Lindsey reaches its greatest potential. The old adage, “It takes a village”, comes to mind when I think about all the wonderful things that happen at Lindsey. And with your help, we can strengthen and build our village to unbelievable heights. See you at the first PTA meeting on Thursday, September 14.
