2015 – 2016 Green Impact Challenge

It’s time to officially kick off our 2015-2016 Green Impact Challenge!  YAY!  This year’s theme is “Grow Green…Grow Strong.”  Students are able to submit entries in the visual and written formats. 

 

All information around this year’s event is included in the attached zip file.  The file includes:

  • Event Details/Student Guidelines
  • Student Rules
  • Student Entry Form
  • Template of Signage to use within your school

 

Additional information, along with these files, will also be placed on the LISD PTA Council website over the course of the coming week.  I will be providing updates on the event in the January, February, March and April newsletters.

 

This year’s event is going to be held as part of the City of Lewisville’s “Colorpalooza – A Celebration of Spring.”  The event will host a wide-range of earth-friendly, conservation-celebrating exhibits such as Chalk This Way, Eco Alley, local vendors and several children’s activities.  Our awards ceremony will take place on April 9th at City Hall in the Council Chambers

 

Combining our awards ceremony with the City of Lewisville’s event is an excellent way to show our community how involved our students are to this cause and provide our students and families exposure to a variety of local vendors and services which support environmental and conservation topics.

 

All of the entries from our finalist will also be on display during the month of April at the Lewisville Library.

 

I will provide additional details around delivery/pick-up of your finalist’s entries in the February and March newsletters — so stay tuned!

 

If you have additional questions, please just let me know.

 

Can’t wait to see what your kiddos submit this year!

Life Member Award Certificate Update

Dear LISD PTA Presidents and/or Membership Chairs,

I am writing to let you know that I deeply regret providing misinformation regarding the TX PTA Life Member Award Certificate being “optional”.  It was brought to my attention this afternoon that to have the honorees name listed in the TX PTA Life Member registry you must purchase the certificate bundle. The TX PTA recently changed the certificate from $45 to a bundle (pin, certificate, ID card and car decal) for $75. I called and expressed my concern about the budgeting issue this price hike would cause, their solution was to have me speak with he director of finance so he could explain how I should adjust my budget. The TX PTA changed the pricing to coincide with their fiscal year which began Nov. 1, 2016.

Unfortunately I have no control over pricing or how the certificate is packaged, those questions and concerns need to be directed to the TX PTA Membership Chair.

My sincere apologies for the confusion this may have caused,

Elizabeth Bachmeier
