Dear fellow Lake Orienta Parents,
In case you have ever wondered about our schools PTA, I will tell you a bit about us. Your PTA is behind tons of awesome programs at LKO. Some of these include the Kindergarten play date, back to school lunch and treats for teachers and staff. We design and print school shirts, and plan the super fun Round Up Party for back to school. Our fundraisers raise thousands of dollars, and our book fair family nights allowed students to join together with other families, have fun and support our media department. We have a blast at skate nights and help with year book photos. We work hard to create a school wide calendar, face book page, and newsletter to keep everyone informed. We loved seeing the kids shop for their friends and family at the holiday shop, and enjoy spoiling our teachers on fabulous Fridays and at the holiday breakfast. We were honored to partner with early act to provide holiday gifts to families in need. We have created and manage the room parent program and collect box tops. We also support many other programs financially such as field trips, 5th grade party, reading incentives, KGT AR and more. Our annual basket night is a huge hit, and the first spring carnival was the most exciting event of the year. We throw a fantastic teacher appreciation week, and have purchased free books for children, violins for music, and much much more! We are so proud of what we do at LKO and we want you to be involved too.
We want each and every person who sets foot on our campus, (students, teachers, and parents), to absolutely love our school, and be really proud of it. Every single student in this school deserves to have a great experience here and make special memories. I'm sure that's what all of you want too. But we can't always rely on someone else to make it happen. These things take effort, but can be so much fun. I've heard, 'Our school is what we make it.' And it really is true. If you have ever wanted to be involved, please feel encouraged to do so. You don't have to have any special talents, or know anyone to join us. We love new people and making new friends, and would never pressure you to help more that you are able. Every little bit helps and makes a difference for your children!
Please join us be a part of our wonderful group of friends and volunteers!
LKO PTA President 2016/17
