Lipscomb Academy Middle School PTO
The LAMS PTO is responsible for overseeing various events and committees throughout the school year. We'd love to have you plug in wherever you feel you would be the most helpful.
The 14th annual The Art Event will be held the second weekend in February 2018 in our new McCadams Athletic Center. The Art Event is Lipscomb Academy’s largest school fundraiser, contributing over $58,000 this past year in support of our annual fund. The silent auction portion of the event supports the Fine Arts program, showcasing many of our own student’s art, which raised an additional $6,500.
Members on the committee work with LAMS Librarian Audree Keele to facilitate the Book Fair which traditionally occurs during the week before final exams in May.
The LAMS Cricket match is a fund-raising event that benefits a school in Bangladesh. Committee members help recruit volunteers to help at the event and to send in drinks and snacks to sale.
The LAMS Field Day events are held in August and help the students get to know each other and learn to work together in various team-building events. Eighth grade will have field day on Tuesday, 8/22. Seventh grade field day will be on Wednesday, 8/23. Sixth graders will participate in field day on Thursday, 8/24. Fifth grade will end the week with their field day on Friday, 8/25. Members of this committee will work with LAMS PE coaches Daree Merritt and Andrew Greer to line up volunteers for the event and to collect drinks.
New Family Committee
Help welcome new students to our LAMS family! This committee's goal is to help make our new families smoothly integrate into LAMS and feel like they are a part of our Lipscomb family. Members will work Jessica Williams, LAMS Admissions Counselor.
School Supply Distribution
This committee works with the Middle School office to help promote the online school supply sales and to distribute those orders to the classrooms once they arrive.
Help promote school spirit and cheer on our LAMS athletic teams! There is a fall spirit day during football season and a spring spirit day during basketball season. Committee members will work with principal Lisa Bruce to help plan activities for the events.
We love our LAMS teachers! This committee organizes and hosts quarterly lunches for the middle school teachers and staff. Extra treats and other thoughtful gifts are provided through the year especially during national teacher appreciation week in May.
Thanks for Giving
To honor our cafeteria and custodial staff during Thanksgiving, our students participate by bringing in change during November. The committee will collect , count, and determine how to divide the money that is given. LAMS teachers are also recognized with appropriate gifts for the holiday.
Have a heart for comforting and encouraging members of our LAMS family? This committee works with middle school administrative assistant Lisa Grissim to reach out and respond to any family that has a need during the school year-- death, illness, loss of job, etc.)
