Parent Teacher Association
Founded in 1921, the Laurelhurst PTA strives to strengthen the family-school-community partnership by providing opportunities to get involved in the education, health, and well-being of children in our community.
Studies show that parent and public involvement are essential to the successful education of our children. A first step in this involvement is joining the PTA — it’s a great place to share ideas, enthusiasm and expertise.
Also, check out the Laurelhurst Parents' Inside Scoop - a new parent handbook written to help answer your questions about the first days of school, all the fundraisers and events you'll start hearing about, and contact info to learn more. Please attend our monthly PTA meetings. The agendas for these meetings are published in our weekly email communication Newsnotes (sign up to receive Newsnotes).
