Dear Lake Highlands High School Community,
It has been another great school year and the PTA worked tirelessly on many things throughout our school. There are so many things that go on behind the scenes and I am so grateful to my 2018-2019 board. This past year, The Wildcat Den was created to provide food, clothing and supplies for our LHHS families. A huge thank-you to The 100 Women of Lake Highlands for their generous donation for fresh and healthy foods. Through this donation, we were also able to provide fresh fruit to all students on Friday mornings, which was met with great enthusiasm from the students and was fun for the parents to greet the students each Friday morning. We are grateful to the many people who helped with this program, especially Jeanne Marie Gisellu and Kelly Bond, who together put in hundreds of hours getting the Wildcat Den up and running smoothly.
On top of this, our PTA was able to support a district initiative known as PBIS, short for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports. This program encourages students to make good choices and to interact with administration and staff in a positive way. The teachers and staff look for “positive” behaviors and actions, and students are recognized. We believe this program changes how students interact with teachers and staff and encourages kindness and positive choices.
There are many other things that go on behind the scenes, such as teacher appreciation, making schedule pickup run smoothly, our PTA newsletter, used book sale and so many more. I want to thank each board member for all their hard work. Each of them contributed to making our past school year a great one! It was an honor to work with such a stellar group of women.
I look forward to being the PTA President again next year, and I’m excited to work with the 2019-2020 PTA Board.Have a great summer and we will see you all in August!
Kiersten Stockham, LHHS PTA President 2018-present
