Join the 23-24 Lawrence PTO Board

There is still time to join the Lawrence PTO Board for the 2023-2024 school year. There are still some important positions that need to be filled. Our events are only made possible by our amazing volunteers! Without a Family Events coordinator, there may not be a Trunk or Treat, Snow Day, Family Dance, or Spring Picnic! Without a Missoula Coordinator, we may not be able to continue with our annual musical performance! For more information, visit, or email President Kristina Plattner at with your questions! We would love to have you join us!

”Thank you PTO for the wonderful Tuff Shed for the school garden! It is going to be such an asset to our garden and school community! Just one example of how our student's hard work fundraising this year paid off! Thank you to all! On a side note if anyone has garden tools they want to get rid of let me know! I’ve got lots of storage now!” – Mrs. Higgins

Action Required by Parents--PLEASE

As you know, Lawrence Elementary is implementing the Leader in Me, which teaches 21st-century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. Surveys are conducted to learn more about key areas of strength and areas of needed growth in our school. The data from these surveys will also help us track the impacts of the Leader in Me process and implement key practices more fully. In order for us to have a holistic picture of what is going on in our school, we are asking all parents/guardians to participate.

Parent participation is completely voluntary, but we do hope to get feedback from one member of every household. The parent/guardian survey takes about 12 minutes to complete and will ask questions about your child and about his or her experience in our school. If you have more than one child attending the school, you will be asked to think about the oldest child’s experiences as you answer questions related to his or her growth.

Thank you in advance for completing the parent survey. Please use this link to complete the survey.
