Each year the PTA organizes and runs numerous events and raises funds to pay for field trips, art, music and many extras that Laurelwood Elementary School doesn't receive funding from the school district for. The PTA is completely reliant on volunteers for all of the events and for running its day to day operations. Moving into the 2017-18 school year we have some open positions that need to be filled.
