IMPACT OF THE PARENT TEACHER FELLOWSHIP
The Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) Board Members take on varied responsibilities focused on creating a richer environment for staff and students. Such endeavors have included the renovation of the gymnasium/lunchroom and library, the addition of a new Middle School science lab and classroom, the installation of playground equipment, and new restrooms. These efforts serve to enhance learning opportunities while creating a nurturing and safe environment for our School Community.
The PTF Mission: The PTF is designed to support LACS in various ways, including Service Projects, Support Programs, and Capital Needs.
Service Projects include events that enhance the community of the LACS family. The PTF hosts fundraising events, such as the annual Walk-A-Thon and Spring Auction. Festivities such as the Backto-School Barbecue, Parent Coffee Socials, Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast and Year-End Graduation events, are funded by the Parent Teacher Fellowship. The Fellowship also runs the Father/Daughter Dance and Mother/Son Adventure, which are wonderful bonding experiences for LACS families.
Support Programs keep the LACS educational experience current. This year, the PTF will support school-wide assemblies, such as Mad Science and Middle School cultural experiences. The Annual Season’s Givings Offering for faculty and staff, which is an essential piece of upholding the School’s vision, culture and community, is managed by the PTF every December.
Capital Needs are expenditures funded by PTF that fall outside the school’s operating budget. These enhance both learning opportunities and capital improvements. PTF funding includes things such as computer and technical enhancements, playground improvements and classroom upgrades.
