Welcome to the website of the Lebanon Trail Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA)!

This is a year of many ‘firsts’ for Lebanon Trail High School! It is an exciting time for the first class and I am honored to serve as the first PTSA president. The PTSA Board and I look forward to laying a positive foundation as we work together to begin a legacy that makes LTHS an exemplary school!

Our aim is to bring families together at school to build collaborative relationships and support student success, all while enriching children's education and overall well-being. Simply stated, we want to create the best possible learning experience for our students and provide outstanding training programs for our parents and teachers while advocating for every child.

As the name suggests, we are an organization made up of parents, teachers and students! We welcome and need your involvement to make LTHS a great place to learn and develop. We can’t do this without active involvement from all stakeholders.

I want to personally extend an invitation for all parents and students to join the LTHS PTSA. Principal Padavil has challenged the LTHS staff to accomplish100% participation; I challenge all families to do the same. That would truly be a remarkable first! I especially encourage our students to get involved. What better way to embrace the LTHS spirit of ‘self-advocacy’ than to join the PTSA and let your voice and needs be heard! Join today at http://www.joinpta.org.

In addition, for families who are able to make an additional monetary donation, we ask that you contribute to our “Write-A-Check” Fundraising campaign. We are hoping to keep our fundraising efforts as simple as possible for our families. We're asking for a one-time, tax-deductible donation of $50 per family to help fund our college scholarship endowment and educational enrichment programs for the students. If that's beyond your budget, please don't hesitate to send in a lesser amount. Any donation is appreciated! Please send your check payable to LTHS PTSA to the school office. Envelopes are also available in the school office.

Families, teachers, and staff are the backbone of our community at Lebanon Trail. We want family involvement to become a long tradition at our school and one of its greatest strengths. PTSA is a place for your ideas and we look forward to your collaboration and support this year. We encourage you to look for opportunities to volunteer and share your experience and talents. Small or big commitment – there is a place for you!

We hope that you will commit in making a difference in the lives of children by getting involved and joining today.

Rose Crayton
