• PTA

    The Lakeville Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a non-profit organization composed of parents and staff members who together strive to create an optimum learning environment. Our mission is to work with Lakeville's faculty and staff to support educational opportunities, to enhance the lives of our students, and to encourage parental involvement in our child's school life.

    PTA meetings keep the Lakeville community informed of current school concerns and developments and offers presentations on timely topics. PTA officers and calendar of events can be found on our website.

    PTA Dues
    PTA dues are contributions made by Lakeville families to help the PTA provide many needed items and programs for our students. For the past years, the PTA has purchased an auditorium projector and screen, drinking water filtration fountains, numerous cultural art performances, musical instruments, gym equipment, iPad keyboards, STEAM indoor recess kits, computer robots, 3D printers, books for the library, and more.  

    PTA dues are collected each year at Open House in September in cash or check (payable to Lakeville PTA). Online payment via PayPal or credit card (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=QJMR4H6XFXXLY)  is accepted any time throughout the school year.  

    Volunteering with PTA
    PTA Executive Board members attend PTA meetings every 2-3 months and are responsible for organizing fundraisers and recreational activities at Lakeville. Each Spring, nomination forms are sent to parents. If anyone is interested in participating on the Executive Board or would like to nominate someone else, please fill out the nomination form and submit to PTA.
