Dear Lindeneau School Families,

Spring is finally here and the PTO is getting ready for a busy last few weeks of school. Please consider volunteering your time in one or more of the following ways:
  • Volunteering at the Mother’s Day Plant Sale on Thursday, May 10 and Friday, May 11.
  • Baking a dessert item for the Teacher’s Appreciation Lunch on Friday, May 11.
  • Volunteering at the Scholastic Book Fair on Wednesday, May 16 and Thursday May 17.
  • Bingo for Books on Thursday May 17 @6:30pm – Please also join us at 8:00pm this night for the Music Raffle.
  • Volunteering at our annual Fun and Field Day on Friday, June 8.
Please see additional information in the newsletter on all these events. Also, please consider filling out the PTO survey and lets us know how we are doing, it’s worth 10 tiger tickets for your child.

Also on sale are tickets to the ETPTAC Somerset Patriots Outing on June 16th @6:30pm. If you are interested in purchasing ticket please see the flyer that was sent home or email the PTO. Tickets on sale until May 18th.

Please join us on Thursday May 24 @7pm PTO elections/meeting. The election ballot is as follows: President – Rich Jeffreys (incumbent), Vice President – Sally Yabra (incumbent), Treasurer – Dave Stryker, Recording Secretary - Christy Yascko, Corresponding Secretary - Carla Heller (incumbent). The success of the PTO would not be possible without parent support. Please come out.

Also as we get closer to the end of the year, I want to take this time to thank all the teachers, the staff, custodians, the PTO executive board, all the volunteers and the parents for making this year a great one. Without all your help we could not make Lindeneau a Great Place to Grow and to Have Fun.

Thank you,
Richard Jeffreys
