News and Activities

Welcome to the 2016 - 2017 School year!

The PTO has been busy this summer.  We’ve met once already to begin planning the Blue Devil Dash.  This is the ONE event the PTO asks families include the community in a request for sponsoring kids with pledges for a fitness awareness event.  Cllick here for the Devil Dash Pledge Sheet. Families are encouraged to participate that day, whether it be to pass out bracelets or the snack, cheer, or walk/run with their kiddo for support.  What do students get for participating?  100% of the proceeds go directly to the PTO; to support Lawton Elementary School and programming for your children, they gain an understanding of the importance of exercise, an appreciation of competition, teamwork and school unity within Lawton.  Every student receives a FREE t-shirt and snack on Dash Day, plus, every student has an opportunity to win fabulous prizes…details will be sent home the middle of September.  This event will be held on Friday, September 30th (rain date: Thursday, October 6th). 

A book fair is also coming this fall.  We will be searching for parents and caregivers to volunteer to help set up/tear down and run cash registers.  Please bring your families to visit us at the book fair in the fall during conferences (Oct. 10 - 17) and in the spring (Feb. 27 - Mar. 3rd). Proceeds benefit the Library. 

We’d love to see more parents/caregivers involved with PTO activities.  There are often miscellaneous activities that can be done w/o attending a meeting, we understand everyone has busy schedules and we'd love any time you can spare – Activities could include:  making phone calls, internet research, snacks & meals for the elementary staff, photo copies, sorting shirts or prizes for events, prepping display case material, etc.  Please contact us at LawtonPTO1@gmail.com if you can assist.

We'd love for you to join us for a meeting each month, but know families are busy. If you're unable to attend please view the agenda and email us your input. We hope you join us often!! Click here to go to our meeting schedule / agenda / minutes page.
