Parent Teacher League (PTL)
This organization tries to establish closer cooperation between the home and school. The role of the PTL is to support Faith Lutheran School, communicate and interact with the teachers, organize and work to achieve successful fundraisers and activities, and to establish a resource/network group of parents to help Faith Lutheran School reach its goals.
The mission of the PTL is to support the school and keep parents informed and connected while providing an opportunity to further develop a positive, family-friendly Christian community. Our main objective is to foster Christian education. We do this by bringing the home and the school into a close relationship, with parents and teachers cooperating in educating the children.
The purpose of the PTL is two-fold: first, to support the school through a parent volunteer system. The PTL helps manage and coordinate some of the various volunteer opportunities that truly help the school function on a daily basis. Secondly, the PTL supports the school by providing incremental funds and monetary support generated through select events. The events are organized by the PTL volunteers and all of the events/initiatives are in support of the overall mission and vision of the school.
In addition to the PTL officers, each event has a leader. Event leaders are identified to coordinate specific plans and needs with each event. All parents in the school are encouraged to participate in activities that would interest them and volunteer their time on that committee accordingly. Time commitments vary greatly and each event leader would welcome any amount of support. The school relies on parent volunteers to provide the support for students and staff.
How do parents get involved?
Parents are encouraged to attend the PTL meetings. However, parents can get involved any time throughout the year, although most committees encourage parents to sign up at the beginning of the year so that plans can be made and responsibilities can be determined.
What should parents do if they have an idea or concern they want to address with the PTL?
Parents can provide input, questions, or ideas to any PTL officer throughout the year. At the PTL meetings parents are encouraged to attend and address any question, concern, or suggestion. Please feel free to contact the school office in advance of any meeting.
