What's coming up with your PTO:
October is National Principals Month
We at Lake Travis High School are truly blessed to have a team of dedicated principals who care deeply about the welfare and education of each student on this ever-growing campus. Our principals expect the best and provide support as needed for all our young adults. Our principals spend countless hours planning for and addressing the challenges of educating 2800+ teenagers. Our principals make many decisions and play many different roles during the day, often having to change gears at a moment's notice. Our principals are passionate about ensuring our students are prepared for life after high school.
THANK YOU Principal Gordon Butler, Associate Principal Karen Reich, Associate Principal Wendy Sturdevant, Assistant Principal Michael Drinkwater, Assistant Principal Darnell Horton, and Assistant Principal Roy Hudson.
The LTHS PTO is proud to partner with you to help enrich the education of the students of Lake Travis High School.

Jyotsna Arora, Mike Sekel, Mialinda Francis & Elena Brooks spent a few hours in July reviewing our financial and business records from 2015-16. We passed with flying colors, with a special kudos for our Treasurer Grace Payne.
The final report was presented and accepted at our General Membership meeting last Monday.

THANK YOU to our 2015-2016 Audit Commmittee
Brief PTO Update:
The year is off to a fantastic start!
As of a few days ago, we achieved our conservative No Hassle Fundraising budget goal of $24,000! A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has donated so far. We would love to beat this goal soundly so we can fund more programs on campus.
Click here to donate.
The Wish List forms have been distributed on campus, and we are beginning to receive requests already! We are casting a wide net and narrowing down potential speakers and topics for our Empower LT events - both during the day AND in the evenings. We have been getting great suggestions for new student programs to start. We appreciate the influx of ideas - keep them coming!
We had a great turnout for our first General Membership meeting of the year. We accepted the Audit Committee's Final Report and Recommendations, and approved and accepted our full-year budget. Mr Butler shared his experiences so far and his vision for our campus, spending a generous amount of time on Q&A.
We have had several volunteer requests, and you filled those needs quickly. THANK YOU! We will continue to fine-tune the process for our campus requesters AND you, our volunteers.
For those of you wanting to get more involved with PTO and meet our current volunteers, we will plan some informal get-togethers at local establishments. We hope it will be a good way to spread the knowledge and begin make connections. We plan to have the first one during the week of Sept 26th - date/time/location TBD. In the meantime, our new website is pretty informative. www.lthspto.org.
We hope to see all of you on Tuesday, October 18th for our LTISD Budget and Finance Presentation/Discussion with Superintendent Dr. Brad Lancaster. We will start at 9 amin theBlack Box Theater.
Thank you for all the ways you support ALL our students. -Babita
