PTO President's Message

August 2021

Hello and welcome to the Lake Travis Middle School PTO!   

We achieved a great milestone getting through the first week of school, so a big congratulations to everyone is in order. Walking through the halls during the LTMS Round-Up a couple of weeks ago was great as I got to see families and students in person. Seeing students interacting with each other about their classes, lockers, and lunchtimes was especially welcomed.

As a reminder, Mr. Wolff mentioned in his Knight News newsletter that went out on Friday, that the in-person Curriculum Night has been postponed. Curriculum Night will now take place virtually, so be on the lookout for notifications from each of your student’s teachers with information about how to access the virtual presentation they have compiled for you to watch at your convenience. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided in their presentation, please reach out to your child's teacher as they would greatly appreciate your feedback and will work with you to answer any questions you have.

We would like to express our sincerest appreciation to those who have joined our PTO. The membership dues along with the donations made as part of our “No Hassle Fundraiser” and the sales from the LTMS Spirit Store are helping us get closer to our PTO goal of raising $15,000. With your help, the funds we raise will help cover the cost of activities planned for the entire school year.

We have some work to do in reaching our goal, so if you have not yet made a donation as part of the “No Hassle Fundraiser” or you would like to purchase some of the great-looking apparel from our Spirit Store, it is not too late!

Join our PTO, we would love to have you. Members receive our monthly newsletter, have access to volunteer sign-ups, Membership Toolkit (MTK) notifications through the app, participation in surveys and polls, and access to the student directory. If you have any questions about PTO membership or with the MTK tool, please reach out to our Membership Coordinator, Erika Franklin.

Please join us for our first General Board meeting scheduled for Thursday, September 23, 2021 at 9:00 am. Please note that until campus restrictions are lifted, all PTO Board meetings will be conducted virtually. You can find the Google Meet link for the General Board meeting on our PTO Calendar. Just click on the meeting listing on the calendar.

Thank You!
Welcome Back!

What better way to welcome everyone back to campus and kick off the new school year than with an amazing yard display provided by one of our Bronze Sponsors, Sign Gypsies of Lakeway.

Teacher Appreciation Breakfast

Thank you to Gold Sponsor, Luv Braces, for the sponsorship of staff breakfast on Friday, August 20th. Because of their support, the PTO was able to provide the staff with a bagel and coffee breakfast from Einstein Bros Bagels.

If you have not yet looked at this year's academic calendar, please do so as it has a complete list of upcoming student holidays.

Spirit Store
We've Got Spirit (Wear), Yes We Do!

Our spirit store is open and stocked with shirts, lanyards, stickers, and other LTMS swag. New items are set to be added to our online store in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. 

For orders that were placed online, you will receive notification by email when your order is fulfilled and ready for pick up at the school. We are in the process of fulfilling previously placed orders that may contain items that were on backorder. If your order contained shirts that were out of stock, please note that the ETA for those shirts to arrive is October 1st. Once we are able to fulfill your order, you will be notified when it is ready. Thank you for your patience.

Join PTO

Whether you are new to the community or if you have been here for some time, your membership in the LTMS PTO provides you with the opportunity to meet other parents, teachers, and to help address the needs of our students at LTMS. Our PTO goal for the 2021-22 school year is to raise $15,000 so that we are able to support the additional student and teacher activities on our budget. 

To help us achieve our PTO goal, access our online registration platform, Membership Toolkit (MTK). After you have registered, go to the My Account section to update your family information so that you receive our revitalized PTO newsletter, notifications of volunteer sign-up announcements, participation in surveys, and access to the new student directory.
