Our PTA has a three-part mission:
• To facilitate communication between parents, administrators, teachers, and other groups.
• To fundraise in support of teaching and learning, which includes academic enrichment for students and professional development for teachers.
• To build a supportive, positive, healthy community for all the students and their families at LeConte.
PTA meetings are your “one-stop-shop” to learn about issues that are important to you and directly affect your child: programs and curriculum, school funding, and plans for special events and celebrations. They are a way to find out about volunteer needs and meet other LeConte families.
The LeConte PTA holds meetings on the second Wednesday of each month from 6-7:30pm. Dinner and childcare are provided for all meetings. Dinner is served at 5:30pm, right before the meeting begins.

• October 9th
• November 13th
• December 11th
• January 15th
• February 12th
• March 12th
• April 16th

After-School Enrichment Classes
The PTA offers after-school enrichment classes for LeConte students. We offer classes in art, music, chess, cooking and more. The PTA funds class scholarships.
What does the PTA do?
The PTA raises money, rallys volunteers and organizes many school programs and events, such as: field trips, tutoring, facility improvements, book distributions, after-school class scholarships, literacy and math nights, latino heritage celebration, graduation, and student performances.
Why should I join the PTA?
More than 30 years of research has proven that children do better when their parents are involved both at home and at school. Grades are higher, test scores rise, self esteem grows, and schools improve. There is a simple way to make these outcomes a reality for your child: join our PTA and get involved at LeConte.
How do I join the PTA?
Ask the secretary for a form, fill out the form online, or fill out this membership envelope. Be sure to include your email address if you have one so we can add it to the LeConte mailing lists. Suggested dues are $10 per person. If you can include more than $10, please do so and help another family’s membership.
