Parent Teacher Association


Dear La Cueva Graduates and Parents,

The La Cueva Rad Grad committee is still hoping to celebrate you with Rad Grad.  We still have Hinkle and the Hypnotist ready to go, we are just waiting on the Governor to allow us to meet in a large group.  The Rad Grad Committee will make a decision in the next few weeks.  If it is cancelled we will refund the tickets.  We realize that even if we hold the event that some of you will not be ready to meet in a large group or may have other plans.  We will look at each case individually to offer refunds.

updates & scholarships

PTA Nominations for next year

Please see the openings, at the top of DOCS on the left, for the PTA for next school year.  We need volunteers and a vote on the committee by the end of May.  Please send your volunteer or vote to the PTA.  Thanks!

Achiever Scholarship

The Achiever Scholarship was established by the LCHS PTA to recognize those students who show outstanding personal character. This scholarship was designed to recognize those students that fall short of traditional academic scholarships, but have displayed hard work and effort in all they do.  Please submit all nominations by Monday, April 20.  Click HERE to submit!

Senior Art Award

This event is for SENIORS ONLY.   Deadline to enter is Monday, May 11.  Judging will be on Thursday, May 14.  Students will email a picture(s) and/or video of their work to the PTA.  2D and 3D styles are accepted.  They do not have to be enrolled in a La Cueva art class to enter.

The top piece in each category is purchased for $500 each and displayed at La Cueva High School.  Artwork is evaluated on aesthetic merit, ability of artist, durability of piece and conceptual merit by a select group of judges.

Continuous Learning Plan Student Incentive Grant

The PTA would like to help you keep the LC Students excited.  We have put together a grant for Classroom Teachers.  This grant is to be used for a non-attendance based incentive or drawing in an amount not to exceed $100.  We can't wait to see how creative you are!  Please click HERE to apply.

Amazon Smile

Do you love the convenience of online shopping through Amazon? Would you like to support La Cueva every time you shop? Join Amazon Smile to have a portion of every purchase donated to the La Cueva PTA!

It's easy to join, just follow these simple steps:

1. Sign in to your Amazon account thru the entry:

If this is your first visit to Amazon Smile, you'll be prompted to select a charitable organization from the list of eligible organizations. Search for "La Cueva High School PTA".

2. Then, every time you shop at Amazon, go to  Amazon Smile instead of the usual, and the PTA will receive 0.5% of every purchase you make. This may not sound like a lot, but with a large community supporting us, these donations really add up!

P.S. Have grandparents, friends, aunts or uncles who shop at amazon? Have them designate the La Cueva PTA as their charity too! It's easy to set up and doesn't cost anything.
