Let’s Have Fun at the Family Picnic this Friday, Sep 15th 5:30-7:30pm

Kick off the school year at the annual Family Picnic. There will be a magician, a juggler, and face painters, oh my! All this fun, at no cost to you. There will also be food for purchase from food trucks that provide pizzas, tacos, and empanadas (with vegetarian options too), and of course, the kids’ favorite: Kona Ice!

It’s an event organized by the PTA so you can get to know new classmates and their parents. Or have a fun, relaxing night just chilling out with friends and neighbors. Sounds like a great time right? That’s because it is! Don’t miss out—come join us on Sep 15, 5:30-7:30PM in the back of the school on the black top.

2017-18 Excellence Fund Campaign Kicks

Laurel Mountain Elementary is one of the top performing public schools in the state of Texas, and our approach to learning is bold, innovative, and uniquely tailored to the strengths and interests of each individual student. At LME we cultivate the individual gifts and talents of every child through the implementation of the Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM). This enrichment program is embedded in all classrooms and practiced every day by every student. The Excellence Fund Campaign, which funds SEM at Laurel Mountain, will begins today and run through Friday, September 22nd.

*NEW this year: We will no longer be sending home envelopes that need to be returned for our Excellence Fund campaign. Instead we are going electronic! It’s quick, easy, efficient and saves paper!

CLICK HERE to go online to indicate their level of support for the Excellence Fund and make donations online. 

Our goal for the campaign is 100% participation so even if you cannot make a donation at this time, we still need each family to complete our online support form in order for classes to be eligible for the participation awards. Classes with at least 80% participation will have their class name featured on the “Wall of Fame”.  Class will 100% participation will also receive a FUN FRIDAY!

Your support of the Excellence Fund confirms that our parents, teachers and community strongly believe in the vision and mission of Laurel Mountain. We encourage you to read more about Enrichment and the Environment at LME on our webpage and/or attend one of the parent education sessions below.

2017-18 Student Pick-up Authorization Form – Please Complete for All Students at LME

It is time to to collect pick-up authorization information for our students via an online form to ensure we have this information readily available, particularly if/when we need to implement our parent/student reunification plan due to an emergency. Anyone who you might possibly ask to pick-up your child for any reason (siblings, neighbors, relatives, co-workers. etc.) should be listed on this form. Anyone not listed on the online form or student registration form will not be permitted to pick up your child for any reason. We ask that one parent from each household complete this form as soon as possible.

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!
