Letter from the PTA President
Dear LHE Wildcat Families,
On behalf of the Lake Highlands Elementary PTA, welcome to the 2022-23 school year! Whether this is your first year at LHE or if you are a “seasoned” Wildcat, we are glad that you are here! Lake Highlands is a unique community made up of active parents and encouraging staff whose focus is on creating an environment where each student will thrive. If you are looking for how you can be involved and help, we encourage you to join the LHE PTA!
The goal of the PTA is to support and strengthen all aspects of Lake Highlands Elementary. From the staff and students to the building itself, the PTA is dedicated to make a positive impact. We are fortunate to be standing on the shoulders of and benefiting from over 67 years of dedicated people - students, parents, teachers and staff members - who have laid the foundation for our school. This momentum and hard work propels us forward, into a year that brings a lot of exciting changes and opportunities.
We manage a yearly budget over $200,000 which pays for operating expenses, teacher support, and student enrichment activities. Over the years, the LHE PTA has also made site improvements including the Wildcat Wonderland, two Wildcat Walkways, shade structures for our playgrounds, and an operating courtyard. We work hard to ensure our students and staff have a safe campus with the tools they need to succeed.
For our PTA to be successful, we need your help! In the same way our teachers and staff grow and nurture our children, now is the time for us as parents to nurture our staff and school.
Please consider taking the following steps in being an active part of our school community:
1) Join the PTA! The more members we have, the bigger our voice! In the wise words of the Texas PTA: Back the future - be informed. Be active. Be your kid’s biggest fan. Be PTA.
2) Volunteer! There are so many ways to support LHE…Become a room parent, help with the auction, volunteer at the book fair, and so much more! Don’t forget to join Dad’s Club and volunteer as a door greeter, morning mentor, and more!
3) Support the PTA with a financial contribution. This year marks LHE’s 67th Anniversary. Please consider making a donation of $67 in the form of a monetary donation to the PTA HERE. We have several fundraisers throughout the year, so please show your support as you are able. Our largest fundraiser is the LHE Auction on February 24th. You can support the auction by being a sponsor, donate an item to the silent/ live auction, host a sign and go party, and/ or buy tickets to attend.
Thank you so much for giving your support, resources, and time to make Lake Highlands Elementary the best it can be. By working together there are no limits to what LHE can be!
