Lee-Scott Academy Families – As parents/guardians of a LSA student, you are a member of the PTO! The success of the PTO depends on parent support and involvement, as it is an organization that works solely based on volunteers.
There are many opportunities that take just a few minutes a month, to some that are more challenging or require work only during a particular season. It is our goal to provide parents with many diverse opportunities to get involved, make new friends, and support their child’s overall experience at LSA.
Parents interested in volunteering throughout the year, please submit the Willingness to Serve Form, available HERE on the website.
