    Lakeridge Middle School PTO

    Stay informed
    ​Get involved

    The Lakeridge Middle School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) welcomes all LMS students and their families to school this year. The PTO is a volunteer-based organization that provides resources, programs, and support to Lakeridge Middle School students, teachers, and staff.

     
    All LMS parents are automatically members of the PTO, and we define a parent as anyone who shares responsibility for the well-being of a student, including but not limited to: guardians, grandparents, a parent’s partner or siblings, extended family members, neighbors, friends, mentors, or a combination of the above. 
     
    As a PTO member, you have access to the PTO online directory and voting privileges on general PTO decisions. Your volunteer time and donations support enrichment opportunities for LMS students, resources for teachers, and support for LMS families.
     
    Check this website, or follow PTO @lakeridgemiddlepto on Facebook and Instagram, for news and updates. ~ Let's Go!

  • Invest in our Learning Community

    Lakeridge Middle School families (returning and new), we want to let you know how much you are appreciated. These first few weeks of school have been challenging, yet you are making it work. We also are doing our best to provide support to our LMS students, teachers, and staff. Because of COVID restrictions, PTO operates a little differently this year, especially when it comes to fundraising and financial expenditures. PTO membership for LMS families is now automatic (no dues are required), but your donations support the evolving needs of Lakeridge Middle School. If you are able to make a donation to PTO this year, please consider a $100 gift or any amount that is meaningful to you. Questions? Please email PTO fundraising coordinator Sarah Howell.

  • Student Clubs General Info C

    It is time for our after-school clubs to start. We hope to have several fun options for students to choose from. Research shows that kids who are involved and connected to school activities outside of class do better in class. In the past, our clubs have included Robotics, Arts & Crafts, Dungeons & Dragons, Queer Straight Alliance, Anime, Card Game Club, Jr. Thespians, and more! If there is not a club that matches a student's interest, they can start one by filling out our Club Application. Watch this space in the next few weeks as our returning clubs start-up and as we add new ones. Encourage your child to choose a way to connect that is right for them!
