Volunteering at PTA events throughout the school year is a wonderful way to get plugged in to our terrific Landels community…where else can you meet other involved families, have fun and do good things to support our kids, teachers and staff at the same time!? If you are interested--or know of others who might be-- please contact Claire (PTA President) or Laryssa (Vice President). If you have ideas for other events and programs that you'd like to see happening at Landels, we would love to hear about them. It’s a team effort to keep Landels running smoothly—we need you! Everyone is welcome to get involved.
