How YOU can support the Lake Harriet Community School PTA
Through your contributions and support, the LHCS PTA has year-to-year been able to achieve the goal of enrichment, education and experience for students, starting in Kindergarten right though 8th grade.
Each year, the PTA turns to YOU, our community of parents and friends, to achieve our goal of $200 in contributions per LHCS family.  All money raised goes directly to your student’s experience at LHCS. 
What does YOUR support of the PTA bring to LHCS? Many of the activities and experiences that make your student’s school day special are funded only by the LHCS PTA. Imagine your student’s school life without the activities that open their world. That’s what your LCHS PTA is here to do – make that difference.
Here’s a short list of activities supported by the PTA:
  • Field Trips                        
  • STEM Curriculum materials                        
  • UC/LC Media Center
  • Accelerated Reading                                       
  • STEM 
  • ALPHA                                                         
  • Classroom Stipend for each teacher - Increased this year to help with Distance Learning
  • Mid West Food Connection                              
  • Chess Club    
  • Math Counts                                                 
  • Science Fair
  • … and so much more
One goal, many ways to get there
In 2020-2021, the PTA has designed many ways for you to support the cause. The choice is yours. All we ask for is your support to reach our goal of $200 per family.
Annual Pledge Drive – 100% of Pledge Drive contributions go directly to the LHCS PTA. 100% tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Can be pledged many times – no limit to number or total of contributions. Additionally, your contribution is often multiplied through corporate/matching gifts. If you look for efficiency in your giving, this is for you. Find out how to contribute here.
Boosterthon Dragon Dance - Students collect pledges October 19th-28th. We will have a virtual dance to celebrate. 
Silent Fundraisers & Wild Rumpus Book Fair – There are opportunities to shop for a cause! Each of these fundraisers give friends and familiy the chance to support LHCS PTA from anywhere.
  • Scholastic Book Fair - cancelled this year. The Wild Rumpus Book Fair will take place in November.         


The Read-A-Thon - The Read-A-Thon gives students a chance to help their school doing what they do best! If you’d like to contribute in a way that celebrates LHCS students’ skills, this is for you.
Spring Carnival – The Spring Carnival is an event that all students look forward to. A fun night for our kids and our community. ALL are welcome. For more information click here 
Parties Galore – Ongoing during the school year – Members of the LHCS Community are invited to host events, with ticket sales and other revenue proceeds benefitting LHCS PTA.

Spirit Wear sales – Throughout the school year/silent fundraiser. 
We thank you in advance for the support we know you’ll give your PTA. Here’s to another great year at LHCS!
