Our annual IFF was AMAZING! Great culinary treats, music, activities, decor, and the list goes on and on. Thanks to all the volunteers and parents that helped to make it an amazing day for all and a fundraising success for the school.


Our Book Fair came and went GREAT. Kids were able to get through hundreds of titles while benefitting the school with over $2,000 in profit! We look forward to hosting again in 2019 with new book and exposing students to more literary treasures. 


Tomorrow (Feb. 1st, 2018) will be the 1st general meeting of the year to be held in the cafeteria at 8:30AM. We encourage all to attend so that you can get important dates for upcoming events and fundraisers.

Teacher Appreciation Week & Student Appreciation Week

January 31, 2018

The PTA was proud to sponsor a catered lunch for ALL the teachers and faculty this month for Teacher Appreciation. In addition, we provided a masseuse to give massages. We appreciate everything you do year round and the influence you have on our children, the future.

Students need appreciation too! This year the PTA held a week long series of activities, giveaways and treats for all the students. Being welcomed to school by a Lin mascot and group of cheerleaders, spirit sticks were given away, food truck and field day, along with pizza and a movie. We know our students work hard all year long to maintain grades, complete projects and iReady lessons. Also, we hosted the Kids Take Charge fundraiser where students via a bidding process could be a teacher for a day. All the kids had tons of fun. Well deserved!

Summer is here!

January 31, 2018

Summer 2018 means vacations, fun in the sun and memories to last a lifetime before your little ones move on to a new grade level and new challenges. For the PTA Board it means all that and more...it means planning for the 2018-2019 school year, looking back on all the suggestions made by parents and improving our systems of next year, bettering the school year for every student. This year we have already added a Security chair to our board, we are pending the installation of the main entrance buzzer system and have a new fundraiser that we have not done in years: Boosterthon. This year is shaping up to be greater than the last and we hope to see you all at the general meetings.
