PTO MISSION STATEMENT
The Lingleville ISD PTO Mission is to promote open communication and understanding between parents/ guardians and teachers/staff of Lingleville ISD. Our goal is to become an independent organization that has no State or National affiliation and we do not support any political platforms, which means that we are able to retain all funds that we raise for our school.
WHY JOIN OUR MISSION?
The biggest reason to become involved is for the benefit of your child. Studies consistently show that when parents get actively involved in their children's education, grades go up, test scores go up, children become more likely to pass, children have fewer disciplinary problems, and are less likely to use drugs and alcohol.
The second biggest reason is to provide our hard working parents and teachers with support. PTO is a great opportunity to learn about the talents and skills that our parents have, to learn how our teachers go above and beyond for our children, and to find parents and teachers who understand not only the difficulties of trying to balance all the aspects of our busy lives, but also the benefits of placing our children in a small school. PTO members are also kept informed on a monthly basis of issues that concern the school and our children.
WHAT ARE THE PLANS FOR THE PTO?
The PTO strives to take an active role in fundraising for example, assisting with the Box Tops for Education Program, raising money for educational class trips, and teacher appreciation gifts.
The PTO would support the school community by supporting a Family Night, assisting with the Scholastic Book Fair, and recruiting volunteers to assist with school sponsored activities.
The PTO would support our local communities. Each year, the PTO would assist with school supplies, clothing, and food drives to support those in need in our community.
