LCHS 9-12 PTSA President
The La Cañada High School 9-12 PTSA is happy to welcome families, students, teachers and staff to the 2022-2023 school year.
The start of the school year brings many opportunities for us to reconnect with friends and meet new families by attending events like the Tailgate Party, scheduled for Sept. 16 before the home football game, the PTSA meetings and the many other events and volunteer opportunities that support our students and staff.
The mission of the PTA organization is “to positively impact the lives of all children and families.”
We encourage all parents to become involved by joining PTSA and working collaboratively with our wonderful administration, led by Principal Jim Cartnal, to help support our students in their education and overall sense of well-being and belonging.
LCHS PTSA has launched the new LCHS Spartan website and online order form, lchsptsa.org, where families can join PTSA, purchase Spirit Wear, tickets to the Tailgate event and the annual fundraiser, the Spring Home Tour.
Parents can also donate to important elements of our school such as the Library/IRC, Technology and the Wellness Center. Most importantly, parents can volunteer to assist with some of the many fundraising and spirit related programs hosted by the PTSA. Without this support, LCHS cannot fund and run the many important programs the school and students depend upon.
I am honored to serve as this year’s PTSA president. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
