Welcome to the Lake Harriet PTA page.

Parental involvement has been shown to positively affect students’ success in school and brings numerous benefits to parents, teachers and the school in general. Did you know that an active PTA is a best practice for parent involvement in their children’s education?
 
 
 
Benefits of PTA Involvement
  • Students know their parents are involved in school decisions.
  • Students benefit from the policies enacted by parent groups.
  • Parents have input into the policies that affect their children’s education.
  • Parents have shared experiences and connections with other families.
  • Teachers and administrators have parent perspectives that inform policy development and decisions.
Membership month might come in the Fall but it's never too late to join the PTA! Visit the PTA page to sign up (or click here) and for $10 you will experience the above benefits and have the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping to make LHCS the greatest school it can be!
 
PTAs are valuable assets to their school communities by providing educational and parent involvement information, resources, events, and activities. They are linked to the Minnesota PTA and National PTA, forming a nationwide network of members working on behalf of all children and youth.
 
Research shows that schools with well-structured, consistent parent involvement programs—like PTA—are more likely to experience profound benefits for parents, students, teachers, and overall school quality.
 
We look forward to seeing you at a meeting!
