Why Join the PTA?

The LHES PTA is a collection of parent volunteers who want to make a difference in their school community and be actively engaged in their child’s education.

The 2017/2018 goals of the LHES PTA are as follows:

  • To increase parent engagement and student access to educationally enriching programs and events.
  • To support our teachers and demonstrate this by promoting appreciation and providing classroom support.
  • To advocate on behalf of the National and NC PTA for strong public schools and ensuring educational access for all children regardless of race, gender, ability, or socio-economic status

Studies have shown, the more engaged parents are in their child’s school and education, the higher the performance of that child and that school.  By being engaged, you are actively showing your child that you value education.

Elementary education sets the foundation for more advanced learning.  The gains in elementary schooling are VITAL towards ensuring a child’s success throughout their educational career
