Welcome to the LaSalle II PTO page! The PTO at LaSalle 2 is made up of teachers, staff and all parents and guardians of our students…if your kid goes to LaSalle 2 congratulations, you’re a full voting member of the PTO.

The PTO facilitates communication in our school community via the Google Group, Facebook group and at our meetings and monthly coffees. The PTO takes parent concerns or big ideas to the administration and or the LSC, and through our committees has made real change for our LS2 kids and contributes greatly to our school culture.

To help augment the school’s budget, the PTO and many generous donors have helped support our annual fundraising activities.  Past funds raised at these events have helped pay for a complete replacement of our school public address system and clocks as well as COVID related masks for students, outdoor planters, playground and murals were all parents driven, community initiatives that help offset the school’s sports programs and clubs.  This year we’re aiming to raise funds to make major improvements to our outdoor playfield.

Additional Accomplishments to date

  • We created a Parent Room for all parents to have a place to meet to conduct committee meetings, have coffee, or just hang out before or after chaperoning a field trip.
  • The PTO supports our teachers with monies for supplies and professional development. We also purchase additional school supplies to reduce the costs for parents.
  • The PTO takes parent concerns and helps bring real change to issues as varied as recess, homework, testing and bullying.

The only thing missing from the PTO is you. Your voice, your talents, your insights are vital to making the PTO a partner in the education of our children. Please feel welcome to bring any ideas or feedback to our meetings-you’ll be glad you did!
