About our School

Its a fact! Kids perform better in school when parents are engaged in their learning.

Get connected! Joining the PTA is great way to know what’s happening.

Joining does not mean you are signing up for a volunteer position.
While the PTA welcomes and encourages volunteers, membership does not
mean you have volunteered for any specific activity.

Grown ups benefit from their involvement, too! Joining the PTA is a great way to get to know the
teachers and administrators. It also connects you to other parents like you
who are committed to our school’s success.

FAQ

Can anyone come to a PTA meeting?

Yes! We encourage every parent or guardian to come to meetings. We discuss PTA events and Committee Chair provides a school update. You can learn a lot at a PTA meeting! PTA General Meetings are held September 6th, January 31st, and March 27th at 6:00 pm.

If I attend a PTA meeting, will I automatically get “volunteered” to do something?

No! We promise we will not assign you a job, but you might want one after you hear the exciting things that we’re doing and how much of an impact you can make on the school. We also want to hear voices from all grades, new and old families…everyone!

Why do I have to renew my PTA membership every year?

Your PTA membership dues are crucial to maintaining quality educational and enrichment programs at Northlake Park Elementary. PTA dues help fund computer lab purchases, cultural events, classroom materials, staff development, and many other worthwhile projects.

My son/daughter came home from school without her jacket. Where is the Lost and Found?

The Lost and Found is in the cafeteria and it is usually overflowing! Your son/daughter can check the Lost and Found during lunch (with the Front Desk’s permission) and take the jacket back to class with her. Or, you can stop by NorthLake Park’s cafeteria and check the Lost and Found .There are sweaters, jackets, books, lunch boxes and more so if your child is missing something, you should check it out!

Can I give my child’s teacher a gift for the holidays?

Sure! Teachers love gifts! Some class parents do a class-wide collection for a gift. In some classes small groups of families go in together, some families go it alone, and some just say, “Enjoy your time away from us!” Whatever you do, know that our teachers are grateful…but that it won’t change your child’s grades!
