Parent Teacher Organization


The Parent Teacher Organization at Leland Public School is a volunteer organization that is dedicated to supporting teachers, engaging parents, and enhancing our school community in pursuit of a world class K-12 education for our children.


We wish to support Leland’s teachers by promoting and coordinating both acts of kindness and active volunteerism in and around the school.

We strive to strengthen and advance a sense of school community by encouraging parent, guardian, and family participation and collaboration.

We seek to encourage effective communication between the school and student families.

We aim to honor and endorse the menu of channels that are available to Leland families for delivering ideas and addressing issues.

We aspire to pursue only modest fundraising efforts and encourage our members to work with the main fundraising vehicles for Leland Public School, which include the Leland Educational Foundation, the Leland Comets Legacy Fund, the Verdier Circle of Friends, and others.

We are committed to an inclusive, diverse, equitable, and apolitical organization.
