Welcome 2021-2022 Lawler Legends!
I would like to first welcome back all returning Lawler families and give a big WELCOME to all of our new families. My name is Cyndi Arakas and I am humbled to serve as your PTA President for the 2021-2022 school year. This past year has definitely thrown us some curve balls, but there is no doubt that together we will make this another fantastic year for our children, our school and our community.
As we begin the 2021-2022 school year, we would love to have your continued support. While we will have a little bit different start this year without all of our Legends on campus, please know that your PTA will be working diligently to ensure that every student and family will receive the same benefits that are available to our PTA members. Whether learning virtually or in the classroom, one constant remains the same--we are ALL Lawler Legends! Now more than ever we need to rely on our community and each other, and as a PTA we want to make certain that every Lawler Middle family feels part of our school no matter where their student(s) is receiving instruction.
I would like to personally invite you to join our PTA and become a part of Team Lawler. I am extremely passionate about our kids, our schools and our community and I feel like PTA is an avenue that allows all of us to give back. Whether you are a stay at home parent or a full time working parent or a grandparent or even a local business, joining the PTA gives you a voice. A voice for our kids and a voice for our community. We certainly understand that not everyone can volunteer for a board position or be up at school volunteering but that doesn't make you any less of a PTA member. When you join a PTA, you are joining a team. A team with the same common goal of providing for our children. There is something to be said for strength in numbers and your membership alone makes a difference.
Thank you in advance for your support. We are looking forward to meeting you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. We will continue to utilize our Lawler PTA Website (https://lawlerpta.membershiptoolkit.com) as well as the Lawler MS Facebook Page to keep you current on all the amazing things happening at Lawler Middle School this year.
2020-2021 Lawler PTA President
"every child. one voice"
In the context of PTA, advocacy is supporting and speaking up for children — in schools, in communities, and before government bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children.
PTA is the largest child advocacy association in the nation. Advocacy has been an important part of PTA for over 100 years. From the beginning, PTA leaders have been focused on giving our children the highest advantages in physical, mental, social and spiritual education.
There are many ways to be an advocate! Some ways families can be involved are to:
Attend Parent/Teacher Conferences throughout the school year.
Meet with school leaders to discuss a topic of importance to the district.
Join your Local PTA, attend PTA meetings and/or serve on a committee.
Attend a school board meeting and/or serve on the school board.
Work with the school and state leaders to implement strong family engagement policies.
Write a letter to the editor to stress the importance of family engagement and other PTA policy priorities.
Educate your members of Congress and their staff on PTA’s federal public policy priorities.
