All the specific item requests and further program details can be found on the Turtle Lake PTA website.


We also greatly appreciate cash, check or online MemberHub donations! Checks made payable to Turtle Lake PTA. Our shoppers will use these funds to purchase remaining items.

Early end of day pick ups

In an effort to reduce classroom interruptions at the end of the school day, please call the office prior to 3:30 p.m. to make arrangements to pick up your child early. The office is very busy at the end of the day and classroom instruction is still happening. Thank you for your cooperation.

Spirit wear online ordering

Show your Turtle Lake pride by ordering school spirit wear t-shirts! Place your order and shirts will be distributed every Tuesday to your child's classroom. If you want your t-shirt to be a surprise, your shirt will be held at the front desk on the Tuesday after your order is placed. To order: https://turtlelakepta.memberhub.com/store?limit=21&live=true
