Welcome to the Lyon - Pleasant Ridge PTA! The LYPR PTA is typically comprised of over 400 parents, teachers and administrators. Our primary objective is to enrich our children's educational experiences by providing our schools with funds, programming, and resources. We believe that parent involvement in the schools is critical to helping us meet that goal. PTA meetings are an excellent opportunity to learn what's going on in your children's school and find ways to get involved to help made a difference. All parents and staff of this great community are encouraged to support the PTA by registering for membership. Membership to the PTA helps support the following initiatives such as:
PTA Grants (purchase Audiovisual equipment for both gyms, garden at PR, Book closet at Lyon, Soft Starts at both schools)
Book Fair/Literature Alive
Virtual Community Nights (both Family and Parents) NEW this year
Assemblies at both schools
Parent Connect (district wide parent education)
Scholastic magazine subscriptions
5th Grade Picnic
