Our organization works to support the teachers, staff, students and families of JLS, through financial assistance, program support, community-building events and communications. Each year, the PTA assists with student programs, organizes staff appreciation events and parent education opportunities, publishes the JLS eNews newsletter, and collaborates with staff on activities that enrich the school experience for students, families and staff members.
