Greetings Landrum Parents,

The Landrum PTO is excited to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year at Landrum Middle School. I hope the summer has left you all feeling relaxed and recharged for the school year ahead. I want to start by welcoming our new families to our wonderful “Lion’s Den” community.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with our organization, we are a volunteer based committee that’s made up of large group of parents and teachers. Our PTO is a dynamic organization, in that it exists to support our school, its faculty, enrich our children’s education, strengthen our sense of community, and enhance student life. We work very closely with our principal, Mr. Player, and the rest of the LMS administration team to provide support for educational/curricula and school enhancement needs.

I am truly humbled at the opportunity to work alongside other LMS, Ocean Palms and PVPV Rawlings mothers this year on our PTO. Some of our board members have served for many years on other PTO’s and some have tremendous knowledge of what has worked well for Landrum in the past. We also have new board members this year, who have brought on an amazing amount of new energy and new ideas.

As you know, the success of the PTO relies heavily on parent participation and family donations. We encourage you all to join us in making this year a success, but also a memorable experience for years to come. It is my promise to you, that the time you either volunteer or the donations you make to our PTO, will be worth your while - and FUN!

With the monies raised this year through PTO membership, Landrum community events/fundraising and Landrum spirit wear, we will be funding the following needs for our school and campus:
• Auditorium: Audio/Lighting/Visual Enhancements
• Licenses for Academic Software
• Supplement School Curricula for Classrooms
• Laptops/iPads for Classrooms
• Teacher Training
• Outdoor Enhancements on Campus
• Physical Education Needs

On behalf of the entire PTO board, we would like to thank you all in advance for your support. We look forward to another wonderful school year and to seeing you in the Lions Den!

Warm regards,

Mel Intemann
