There are a number of ways you can be active with PTC, and you choose the level of involvement that works best for you:
Attend PTC meetings. Your feedback is very important and quite influential on funding decisions. We hope you'll join us at PTC monthly meetings to be part of the discussions. Plus, attending meetings is the best way to learn about PTC, and how it supports Lake Forest and its students.
Volunteer your time. Behind every PTC event is a team of parent volunteers. Whatever your availability or interests, we have a volunteer opportunity for you!
Serve as an executive board member or chair a committee. Elections are held each spring.
Who can join PTC?
Any parent or guardian of a Lake Forest student may become a voting member of PTC.
When does PTC meet and what goes on at meetings?
PTC meets the third Wednesday of every month. Check our calendar for exact dates. We meet at 5:30pm in room F-9.
We have a "Team Huddle" catch up the following morning, Thursday, from 9-9:15am by the stage or in the gym, to recap.
Who can participate in PTC meetings?
All parents and guardians of Lake Forest students are invited to participate in all PTC meetings and encouraged to express their views on relevant issues before the board.
How do I volunteer?
All current PTC volunteer opportunities are listed on our Volunteer page. We're always adding new opportunities, so check that page often or look for calls for volunteers in our newsletter.
If you're looking to volunteer in the classroom, please check directly with your child's teacher.
Am I required to volunteer my time?
There are no volunteer requirements but it's only through the volunteer efforts of our parents and guardians that we can continue to enrich Lake Forest with PTC-supported programs.
How can I take a more active role by chairing a committee or running for a position on the executive board?
With new faces comes fresh ideas. We're always looking for people who want to assume a leadership role. If you're interested in serving as an executive board member or committee chair, look for election announcements in the spring.
