President's Message

Lone Hill Middle School

Dear Lone Hill Families,
It is with pleasure that I would like to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. As PTA president I am looking forward to serving  the families and staff at Lone Hill to make this the best year it can be.
Our successful Direct Donation Campaign will once again be offered to you this year and will be the only fundraiser that Lone Hill PTA does within the school year.
Lone Hill PTA has a strong presence in our school community that offers  both financial and volunteer support to the Lone Hill Student Body and to the staff. Our Direct Donation Campaign  allows  you to make a one time tax deductible contribution without ever having to sell any products and ALL FUNDS collected will stay at Lone Hill and directly benefit  your student.
Many companies have matching employee donation programs which can double the value of your individual contribution. The Edison Company, Sempra Energy, Bank of America and Avon are all examples of such companies.  Just ask your employer if they offer an employee matching donation program or inquire online.
To maintain the programs and materials in which PTA supports the Lone Hill Student Body, an average donation of $50 per child is being requested.
Here are some of the programs that benefit and enhance your child's educational and extracurricular experiences:
  • Renaissance and Winners Circle - Academic Reward Programs
  • P.A.W - Proving Academic Worth - Includes an activities and game room.
  • Dances
  • Leadership Program
  • Red Ribbon Week
  • Reflections Art Program
  • Scholastic Book Fairs
  • Student Agendas
  • Departmental Grants - Up to $500 per department for supplies and new equipment
  • Angel Fund Donation Program for teachers.
If your child participates in activities such as band, choir or the  8th grade party, these events would continue their own efforts to raise funds.
As you consider your financial commitments for the fall, we ask that you think about participating in our one time direct donation fundraiser. We've even included incentives for your child!  Please read the back of this flier for more information or visit our new website at:
Feel  free to contact me if you have any questions, comments or suggestions or if you are interested in getting more involved with our PTA.
Thank you for your consideration,
Kurt Smith                                                              
PTA President
