Community Connect Program "The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members." - Coretta Scott King Introducing our Community Connect Program: In light of the COVID-19 situation, our LCTA PTA board is brainstorming on how we as a community can best strengthen and encourage one another as we balance work, distance-learning, childcare, and self-care while keeping worries — both our children’s and our own — under control. We don’t have to do it alone. This program is designed to connect LCTA community members to each other to provide support and foster relationships. And also a way for parents to connect and share ideas regarding home schooling, fun projects, etc. Our hope is that this program will provide a means through which we can truly be there for each other and we highly encourage you to participate! Enrollment: Feedback During this unprecedented time we welcome any feedback you have for the LCTA PTA. Feel free to visit our feedback survey at any time. It will remain up on our website and continue to evolve. General Membership Meetings Thanks to all who attended our April General Membership meeting.
