Annual Campus Family Survey Now Open

The annual campus family survey opens Thursday, Jan. 9 and will remain open through Sunday, Feb. 9.

Responses from parents, staff, and students directly impact campus life and help shape school activities and programs. The online survey is mobile-friendly and short; participants can expect it to take about 5 minutes to complete.

Results from the survey are used by campus administration to plan, implement or adjust campus policies and programs. Survey results from previous years have been instrumental in driving lasting changes. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and let us know how we’re doing.

It’s Time to Order Your Yearbook!

Student pictures have been taken, the cover art has been submitted ….. it’s going to be a great yearbook! Make sure you have ordered yours. The only way to ensure your child receives a yearbook is to pre-order. Yearbooks are $30 and include our LME community and school activities such as Clay Night, Family Fit-nic, Carnival, Clubs, Art, Music, Enrichment and Environment learning, classroom parties, recess fun, lunch room happiness, friends and teachers, and much more. It’s a treasure and keepsake your child will enjoy over and over again! Yearbooks arrive in May; IF we have extras, they will sell for $35 at that time on a first come first serve basis.

Support the PTA When Shopping on AmazonSmile

On December 8th at the General PTA meeting, it was approved that the LME PTA would participate in AmazonSmile, which is Amazon’s charitable organization that will automatically donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to our PTA. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know – same products, same prices, same service. It costs you nothing, and it’s just like shopping on Amazon normally, but you get to do a world of good while shopping. Go to AmazonSmile and select your charitable organization as “ PTA Texas Congress 7871 Laurel Mountain Elementary” based in Austin, TX then start shopping!

Fill out the Pick-up Authorization form. Only parents, guardians, and people listed on this form will be permitted to pick up your child.
