Please Welcome Lisa Tigert!

Lisa Tigert will join the Findley family as our new Professional Assistant! Her first day is Monday, March 7. Here is a short bio.


I was born and raised in Southern California and have lived in Alpharetta for almost 7 years. My husband Randy and I have been married for 22 years and have 3 adult kids: Kyle, Madison & Alyssa. We have 2 dogs (a 17 year old Beagle & a 2 year old mixed-breed rescue) and a few fish.

My work history covers the banking, architectural and staffing industries, as well as helping a friend out with her dog walking business in Alpharetta!

I have always wanted to work within the school system in a supporting role and am so excited to work with the staff and faculty at Findley Oaks Elementary!

It’s Almost Here!


The time for Findley Oaks’ Fine Arts Night is almost here! On Tuesday, March 14th you will be able to view a VIRTUAL art show (a link to the website will be sent out a few days before to all families). This VIRTUAL show will feature an artwork from every student at Findley Oaks and will run until midnight on Friday, March 25th. During this VIRTUAL art show, you have the option to purchase your child’s framed artwork and reproductions of his/ her work for $25 each from the website. You can choose to either have the artworks shipped to your home (or any home in the United States,) or you can pick the artwork up from Findley Oaks at a time and date to be determined in the future. If you do not wish to purchase your child’s artwork framed, unframed artwork will be returned to students at a time after March 25th. A portion of all purchases go toward purchasing special supplies needed to create Findley Oaks’ 5th grade legacy projects, all grades’ clay projects (Japanese tea bowls, Claes Oldenberg inspire clay sculptures, clay mask sculptures, etc.), and all grades’ weaving projects (loom weaving, paper plate weaving, cup weaving, yarn, etc.). We cannot wait for you to see what we’ve been up to!

School Nutrition to begin accepting Meal Eligibility Applications to support P-EBT Benefits

To support P-EBT eligibility benefits for students, the School Nutrition Program will process Free & Reduced Price Meal applications.

There are several businesses that have already committed to donating and the role of the chair will be to upload the donations to the auction website, work with volunteers to organize items for pick up, and work with the VP of Business Partners for any direction or support.
