PARENT SUPPORT FORM 

LMS PTA SUPPORT FORM – 2019/2020

As we hope you know, the PTA at LMS is a fantastic resource enhancing your daughter’s school experience.  The importance of the work we do is magnified by the ever increasing funding cuts which simply don’t allow the school to do many of the activities they wish.  That is where you come in.   

So far this year, through our fundraising efforts, we have been able to purchase the following items for the school:

·      A reconditioned upright piano (Music)

·      3 sewing machines (DT)

·      A small dishwasher (DT)

·      Language resources  (Languages)

·      Visits from two authors to the school (English)

·      A camera and related equipment (Art)

·      A yoga coach (Wellbeing)

·      Gardening equipment (SEN)

·      Donation of old/unused maths books to Books2Africa UK

·      Oscilloscope & Power Supplies (Science)

The PTA has also supported the recent Walk for Well Being and the Little Women Productions by providing refreshments and a link for sponsorship through the website (www.lmspta.org).  In September we will be launching a “Red Box” in school to provide sanitary products and spare underwear for girls (and for which we need donations and will be seeking corporate sponsorship).  

We have plans to introduce a work experience bank which the school can tap in to for the older girls as well as working with the School’s newly appointed Development Office (Catherine King) to host a stand-alone Silent Auction event.

We aim to meet or hold social events monthly, generally on the first Tuesday of term time.  The calendar of events for next school year is now available so please do diarise and come to what you can. 

The work of the PTA, however, can only happen with your help and is only as good as the sum of its’ parts.  We rely heavily on each year group to get involved in whatever way works for you and your family.  Without volunteers – in whatever guise – we cannot continue.  At the moment we have a small group of hugely invested and active parents, but we need more.

To help us better understand what contribution you can make, please fill in the below and return it to your parent rep, the school or email it to ladymargaretpta@gmail.com.  

(Note: parent reps are the point of contact for the PTA to send messages to their class and rally the troops.It is not to distribute school messages, which happens via ParentMail.Ideally we need two per class but are in desperate need of more volunteers for Year 11+.It is not a particularly onerous role once you have your class distribution list.)

(PLEASE COMPLETE AND EMAIL TO ladymargaretpta@gmail.comor your class rep (see list on the PTA website: www.lmspta.org) or drop a copy back to Reception marked for the attention of the PTA)
