June General Membership Meeting Recap

In light of recent events, we hosted a forum on race and racial equity, moderated by Kennetra Wood, ACPS Director of Alternative Programs and Equity.  The ZOOM format had over fifty participants and resulted in an out pouring of support for our upcoming 360 Inclusion Committee (led by April Bryant) to support our work on addressing cultural competence and equity at LCTA (see Powerpoint of the presentation).  We have work ahead of us and are looking forward to having every family participate in a meaningful way to support all our children.  Please reach out to our PTA President, Melissa Carstens, for further information.

Feedback

During this unprecedented time we welcome any feedback you have for the LCTA PTA. Feel free to visit our feedback survey at any time. It will remain up on our website and continue to evolve.

Community Connect Program

This program is off and running!  Over 30 community members have been matched and are finding support in one another:

"Joining the LCTA Community Connect was a gamechanger for me. After years of being on the peripheral of the school and not knowing many parents because of my work schedule, I decided to sign on to Parent Connect without expectations. I was paired with a perfect group of moms. One was already a friend and the other a new one. Together, our trio discussed how we wanted to foster a more inclusive and diverse atmosphere for parents. It's been a wonderful experience. I highly encourage any parents who want to get know new people to sign up. Most importantly, you can't have too many advocates helping and cheering you on during your child's school years. Two thumbs way up for this program. I'm so excited for Fall 2020!"

Are you new to our community, or now find yourself with more time and want to grow your connections with other families in LCTA? Could you use a resource who has experience at the school or in the community to help answer your questions, bounce ideas about and help you navigate this remote learning and new normal we are all struggling to embrace. This program is designed to connect LCTA community members to one another to provide support and foster relationships. This program is an opportunity to encourage one another as we balance work, distance-learning, childcare, and self-care while keeping worries — both our children’s and our own — under control. This is a program guided by the PTA under the direction of Dr. Zissios and is an opportunity to form new friendships and strengthen the bonds in our community.
