Welcome to Lily Lake Grade School PTC 2015-16. A great big welcome to all new and returning students and families!
For those unfamiliar with the Parent Teacher Committee (“PTC”) at Lily Lake, the PTC is an organization of parents and teachers at our school that collaboratively work together to foster a nurturing and educational environment that strives for continued parent involvement while helping to build a better educational setting for our children. Through our generous volunteers, sponsors, and fundraising efforts, the PTC has been able to continue to donate funds to purchase educational materials, technology, and equipment for the school.
For the PTC to be effective, it is essential to have parental involvement. We know how busy parents of young children are. We have parents that feel that they cannot be involved in the PTC because of their time constraints. However being a part of the PTC does not require that you attend every meeting or event. There are endless possibilities to help! Whatever your level of flexibility, the Lily Lake PTC appreciates their volunteers, as does our teachers and staff. Keep in mind, that by volunteering you get to enjoy interacting with the kids, getting to know other parents, and accomplishing things that truly make a difference.
So what do we actually accomplish? The PTC funds many programs that make Lily Lake so special. Items funded include:
- Field trips
- Literacy Night
- Fit-N-Fun Run
- End of Year Celebration
- Boys Bowling Bash
- Girl’s Winter Dance
- Books for the library
- Two alumni scholarships
- “Gotcha” incentive program
This year, we’re focusing on our core goals of maintaining our current programs, supporting our teachers, and responding to “wish list” items as needed. Lily Lake is a small community. It truly requires an “all-hands” approach. Only you can help us to continue the success of our students. It is because of our size, and this community, that year-after-year Lily Lake is recognized for its excellence.
Whether you have 30 minutes, or a couple of hours, your ideas, your time, and your talents are truly needed and appreciated. We promise to match your time constrains and interests to needed tasks. We have many ways in which moms, dads, and even grandparents can contribute! Contact a PTC Board member, committee chair, or visit our website at www.lilylakeptc.org to see how to get started.
We’re looking forward to a great year!
