Welcome to the Lake Magdalene Elementary School PTA website!

Dear LME Parents, Family Members, Teachers, Administrators, Staff, and Students,

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! My name is Renee Borchin and I am the president of the Lake Magdalene Elementary PTA for this academic year.  I am a mother of two students at LME.  I look forward to working with you to make this a great year!

We have many new families at LME and I want to extend a warm welcome.  The focus of this year is to accomplish many things together.  Everyone can bring ideas to the table and we would love to hear all of the ideas you have.  The PTA aims to support the entire LME community.  My goal for the 2023-2024 school year is for the PTA to work alongside the teachers, staff, and administrators to ensure that every student has a memorable and enriched year.

I encourage you to join the PTA since it is an organization that helps families become involved at their child’s school.  The LME PTA also offers many programs and holds events throughout the school year.  Many programs are free and I’d like to let you know about a few of the programs the LME PTA offers.

Book Buddies: When students need extra one-on-one time reading, LME has a program where a volunteer can be a book buddy with a student.  The student and volunteer will meet regularly in the LME Media Center.  The volunteer reads with the student, assists in sounding out text and provides encouragement to the student.  This is a program that anyone can help with as their schedule allows.

Giving Tree: Every Christmas season, the PTA works to collect donations to benefit LME families who need assistance during the holiday season.  Wishes are written and listed on the Giving Tree in the LME office.  Unwrapped gifts (wishes) are returned to the office and provided to families in need.  The PTA collaborates with the school Social Worker, Janelle Urra, for this program.  In 2022, our Giving Tree helped 87 children have a brighter holiday with gifts, Christmas trees, and food.

Manatee Meals: Every week, the LME PTA partners with the Mission Hill Church to pack ‘take-home’ sacks for our most vulnerable Manatees.  To help, simply drop off any of the recommended items or anything that would fill hungry bellies to the front office.  If you are interested in volunteering to help pack the bags, this is done every Thursday to ensure delivery to students by Friday.

Swag Closet: The PTA collects donated new or gently worn clothing items for the LME community.  The clothing includes LME uniform clothing (polo shirts, shorts, and dresses) along with cold weather items like jackets.  Any study can utilize the Swag Closet.

The LME PTA will host various event throughout the school year.  The PTA events are either free or at a minimal cost at PTA membership pays for these items.  Additionally, these events cannot happen without your help.  If you could donate time for at least one event this year, this would be greatly appreciated.  To volunteer, please contact the LME PTA at lkmagpta@gmail.com and complete a Volunteer Application  through Hillsborough County.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook (Lake Magdalene PTA) and look at our website for more information (https://www.lkmagpta.org).  For more information about any program, event, or the mission of the PTA, please reach out by emailing lkmagpta@gmail.com.  To join the PTA, please use the following QR code or go to Givebacks (memberhub.com).

I look forward to meeting you,

Renee Borchin
