Throughout the school year, the PTA sends out a Keep In Touch message (KIT) once a week highlighting useful information for your reference. The KIT and the website work together to be great sources of news for our Hughes families. If you find you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the board members for more information!
PTA Help Wanted
Please take a look at the job openings for this school year and see if there’s one that appeals to you. PTA involvement in middle school is a nice way to stay in touch with other parents, and most jobs take place outside of school hours. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040d4dac0-ptaboard
Join the PTA (Why? Because we need you)
In 2015, LHMS eliminated traditional fundraisers. We rely solely on direct donations from Hughes families and our community.
We ask each LHMS family, to join the PTA, and to please consider donating $50 to be a Panther Pride member. In appreciation of your PTA Panther Pride donation, we will give you a LHMS PTA Water Bottle. Pick up yours at Back to School Night, or email Membership@LHMSpta.com to have it sent home with your student.
PTA Panther Pride supports our mission to ensure that all of our students and teachers/staff have access to everything they need for success in the classroom, additional/new technology, school events, mini-grants and student recognition activities. The PTA activities for students (and families) include Skate Night, Homecoming Parade, Panther 5K, Student Basketball Game, Restaurant Spirit Nights, and a new fun event to be announced soon. We coordinate staff appreciation events throughout the year, support Spirit weeks for the whole school and recognize student accomplishments through Honor Roll and Bringing Up Grades celebrations.
To join the PTA, online at http://www.lhmspta.com/join-the-pta.html or send in the paper form from your student’s paperwork.
