Important Message from Our PTA  President

November 21, 2022


Hello, LRMS community,

It is with a heavy heart that we acknowledge the loss of our principal, Karen Sinders. Mrs. Sinders died at school earlier today. In the coming days, resources will become available for your students and families should you need them. Please read the message from the school if you need more information.

Mrs. Sinders was a ferocious advocate for Lufkin Road and a clear leader for the students, faculty, and school. We at the PTA remember her as a woman of grace and a keen sense of awareness that Lufkin is not just a school but a home for many of our students.

She will be deeply missed.

- Candace Smith and the LRMS PTA

With Thanks for Your Support


Our thanks to all of the families who have reached out to express support for the Lufkin Road Middle School community, especially those who helped out during the faculty’s Thanksgiving lunch on Nov. 22. 


The holidays are always an important time to express our appreciation for teachers, staff, bus drivers, and other school personnel. In light of Mrs. Sinders’s tragic passing, we know many of you are eager to help. We’ll keep you posted about efforts that the PTA will be coordinating, and if you’d like to help us plan, please reach out to a member of the PTA Board, or our Staff Appreciation co-chairs, Beth Lavin and Rae Jobe.
