We want to welcome you to our 2013-2014 PTSA Website. This year we have two PTSA Co-Presidents, Jean Fujiki and Kim Silverman. Here is their message.
"We are honored to be your 2013/2014 Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA) co-Presidents for Lynbrook High School. We are joined by a wonderful team of volunteers this year who round out our board including our very own high school students.
Because of your donations and the hours you have volunteered over the years, we have transformed the Lynbrook campus, its students, teachers and parent community into the California Distinguished school that it is today. Newcomers to Lynbrook are benefiting from previously active PTSA members. We want this link to continue for generations to come, and to fulfill this goal, you must do your part.
Please fill out the donation envelope in your first day packets and sign up each member in your family, including each student, to become a PTSA member.
PTSA members can be students, parents, teachers, school staff, and other community members who don't necessarily have a child at Lynbrook, but who believe and support the mission of the PTSA.
Your voice is critical to our mission; your time is critical to our goal; you bring unity to the community when you join the Lynbrook High School PTSA."
Dear Lynbrook Parents, Students and Staff,
Please take a moment and think about those parents, teachers or staff members that make a big difference in making our school programs and youth programs thrive. The PTSA would like to hear about their contributions. Every year Service Awards are given by the PTSA to recognize these amazing volunteers, and we need your help to find deserving recipients. For more details on the awards, see below. Every contribution is worth recognizing, so please don’t hesitate to nominate someone.
We are not only looking for PTSA volunteers, but also for people from LIMB, the Athletic boosters, sports programs, dance, speech and debate, scouts, and other activities around our school community. There is always a person or two that seems to go that extra mile. Parents, if you are not sure, ask your kids! Students may nominate people, as well. Teachers and staff members are eligible for nomination only if there has been service above and beyond what can be expected in the normal course of the job. Please feel free to go to the Lynbrook PTSA website (http://www.lhs.fuhsd.org/ptsa) to see the 2013 PTSA Service Award winners.
To submit your nominations, simply send an email to LynbrookAward@gmail.com by March 21st, 2014. We will need the following information:
1) Name of person(s) you are nominating.
2) Your name, phone number, and email.
3) Reasons for nomination.
When you are writing about the difference this person has made at Lynbrook, remember to also include any sports coaching, church youth activities, scouting or other community youth activities that he/she is involved in. Please be as detailed as possible. If you know that this person has received a PTSA award before, please indicate which one.
