PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATION

 

One of the most rewarding jobs you will have is parenting. Research has proven that a connected, actively involved parent group is directly related to student success in the school environment.  We encourage our parents/guardians to be actively involved in their children’s education. At Lake Forest Charter School, we have the best “Eagle Parents!”  Parental involvement is synonymous with our success at Lake Forest.

Our parent-teacher organization is passionate, motivated, and dedicated to work in collaboration with the students and Eagle Leaders in many different avenues. The connection between student, parent, and Eagle Leaders sets a positive tone and lends itself to common expectations and goals.

PTO Executive Board

The PTO Executive Board is open to all parents/ guardians. The board is responsible for planning all PTO sponsored event & activities, broadening the base of parental involvement, and fundraising efforts to supplement the cost of the schools’ needs.
