Staff Appreciation

We have a wonderful staff at Lenexa Hills and we want to make sure we show them our appreciation.  Chairpersons will coordinate and schedule volunteers for a back to school snack or brunch, monthly luncheons, teacher/staff appreciation week in May, snacks throughout the year, birthday cards to staff, and a retirement reception for retirees (should this occur).   This committee needs two chairpersons and many volunteers.  (Committee responsibilities run yearlong) 

Teacher Liaison

We have an excellent staff at Lenexa Hills.  In order to keep the staff informed of PTA happenings and decisions, a staff member to interface with is important.  Responsibilities include attending PTA meetings regularly and updating the PTA on information concerning the staff and their needs.  This position will also report back to the staff information about the PTA business. 

Variety Show

Our fourth through sixth-grade students love to showcase their talents through singing, dancing, athleticism, and comedy in the annual Variety Show.  This committee needs two chairpersons to help coordinate all aspects of the event including appropriate content, auditions, rehearsals, and the final performance.  Additional volunteers are needed.  (Committee responsibilities run February through May)

Web Design

Lenexa Hills is a new school and we need a central place for our parents and families to quickly locate information that is up to date and relevant to their student’s elementary school experience.  Chairperson would create a web page for Lenexa Hills Elementary PTA and link any social media accounts to this page.  Chairperson would also update the web page as needed. (Committee responsibilities run yearlong)

Welcome New Families and Staff

We are a new school at Lenexa Hills and it is likely we will have new families and staff.  Lenexa Hills wants to extend a warm welcome to new students, families, and staff members.  Chairperson will coordinate volunteers to serve as a resource and support for incoming Kindergarten families, put together welcome packages/baskets for new students and staff that arrive throughout the year, and have a welcome table at Back to School Bash in August.  The committee needs a chairperson and a few volunteers for Back to School Bash and the First week of Kindergarten.  (Committee responsibilities run yearlong)

Yearbook

What a great way to celebrate the end of the school year, and to savor memories of being a Lenexa Hills Lion for years to come.  Chairperson is responsible for yearbook sales, assisting Mattie Weck and her student team in putting together the annual yearbook, which includes gathering photos from parents, and staff, working with the printer to coordinate the various deadlines for completion and distribution of the Yearbook in May.  This committee needs a chairperson and one to two volunteers.  (Committee responsibilities run yearlong)
