Now more than ever, PTO funding makes a difference in our kids’ education. PTO grants furnish classrooms that inspire, curriculum that adapts, and the technology to help every student excel—whether they are learning in person or remotely. PTO funding takes our students’ experience beyond what the school budget can offer…and is success depends on you!
In a typical year, this funding comes partly from special events, after-school programming, fairs, fetes, and fun runs…but in 2020-21 the annual appeal may be our only chance to raise the necessary funds. Please give as generously as you can!
The Lawrence School PTO is a 501(c)3 organization. All contributions are 100% tax-deductible and eligible for company matching programs. Click here to request information about how to request a match from your company.
