Lakeridge Middle School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) provides educational resources and support to LMS students, teachers, and staff. PTO welcomes engagement from all LMS families and all LMS parents (anyone who shares responsibility for the well-being of a student, including guardians, grandparents, a parent partner, or siblings, extended family members, mentors, or a combination of the above) are automatically members of the PTO. As PTO members, parents receive access to the PTO Online Directory and have voting privileges on general PTO decisions. The PTO supports LMS with Back-to-School events, athletics, Science Fair, OBOB, Outdoor School, Art Literacy Program, and organizing the 8th Grade Celebration. These programs and events depend on parent volunteers and financial donations to offer during the school year.
