What if I don't have time for the PTA? 

  • We understand that not everyone can or wants to volunteer their time. As a member of the PTA, you will never be required to donate your time . 

  • The simple act of paying your family's $20 PTA membership helps us offer programs to your student and all students at Lester. 

  • Your membership keeps you connected to PTA updates and events.   

How can I stay updated on Lester PTA fundraising efforts and how funds are spent?

  • All are welcome at PTA meetings to hear budget updates and provide input.

  • Review the 2023-24 PTA Budget and find links to Treasurer's Report updates in PTA Meeting Minutes

What else do I need to know?  

  • Memberships do not auto-renew so be sure to join every year you have a student at Lester. 

  • More than 85 research studies have shown that when parents are involved in their education, kids' grades and test scores improve. Together we are creating smarter kids!
