    Lakeland Elementary Volunteers Rock!!

    The Lakeland PTA supports our school's staff and administration by working hard to help them achieve their goals.  It takes volunteers like you to make these wonderful programs happen, so take a look at the PTA event descriptions below and see where you might fit it!  You will love volunteering, your child will love seeing you, and the PTA will give you tons of kudos and thanks!  We really appreciate our PTA volunteers and want to thank you in advance for your support!   


    Listed below are brief descriptions of activities sponsored by the PTA.  Hopefully this will help you understand the different opportunities that are available at Lakeland Elementary.  You may print the form at the bottom of the page to register as a volunteer.  Just fill out the form and send it in to your child's teacher - they will forward it to the PTA and we will contact you about the opportunities you are interested in!  Here are the current list of opportunities:
