Why should I join the PTO?

LCA has the reputation of being an involved and close community. We are an organization you can be proud to be a part of. The PTO strives to continue to enhance and enrich our childrenís educational experience, and make a difference in our familiesí lives! Itís also a great way for busy families to get together socially ó both kids and parents have begun lasting friendships at PTO Family functions!

Does it cost anything, where does the money go?

There are no dues for membership! The use of funds derived by this organization shall be for the benefit and improvement of the school and teachers and to support school activities as approved by the PTO Board.

What can I do for our PTO?

Our programs and events are organized, funded and run by our members. We invite you to participate by volunteering. A great variety of volunteer opportunities are available. We have everything from leadership roles to set up/clean up at events. Many events require manpower at tables, baking or just assisting other volunteers with their projects inside the comfort of your own home! The more volunteers, the easier the task!

What happens at meetings?

Meetings are held at LCA. There is an agenda that includes a report from our principal, a treasurerís report, and updates on upcoming events and fundraisers. Itís also a forum to discuss new issues and propose new ideas. All parents, teachers and staff are welcome and encouraged to attend. Itís a chance to not only get involved in your childís education but to also have your voice heard.

This year we have developed a website to help you keep track of your LCA volunteer hours. Please click here to submit your hours: http://lcafamily.com/ . Prior to going to the website please review the Family Portal Tutorial for detailed instructions. If you have questions, please contact rosa_hartman@yahoo.com.

Each family is required to volunteer a minimum of 40 hours per school year. It is our volunteers that help make our school successful. Every family has a place at LCA whether it be in the classroom helping out our teachers or at every PTO event helping other families to connect. There are a wide range of opportunities available for all. If you are looking for an opportunity please check out our PTO Sign Up Genius page for all available volunteer positions.

Building and Grounds - In order to keep our school in tip top condition there are a number of tasks that need to be completed as often as possible.
