Laurel School

Confident, Passionate & Involved

Join the PTO

  • INSPIRE! Laurel PTO plays a vital role in supporting and enriching our students' academic curriculum and social development opportunities. Your contribution will help us provide programs and support in the areas of the PTO's Five Cs: Curriculum Enrichment, Classroom enrichment, Campus needs, Community building, and Communications.

     The investment of your time in the classroom and on campus with the PTO is meaningful. For volunteer opportunities, click here and attend the Back-to-School Coffee on the first day of school each year to sign up for the opportunities that interest you.

    INVEST! The cost of providing our programs is approximately $250 per child. Contributions of any amount are greatly appreciated. We encourage those who can to include an extra contribution to help sponsor the cost of additional students.

    are you in?
    The PTOs for Encinal, Laurel, Oak Knoll and Hillview, along with the Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation, are working together to make our schools the best they can be for all of our kids. When you support your PTO, you make possible curriculum enrichment, field trips, community building events, and well-supplied classrooms. When you support the MPAEF, you are putting more teachers in our schools – both in the classroom and in specialized areas such as art, music, drama, library and science. All of this makes a real difference in your child’s day and, ultimately, in their education.
    Please support these organizations today. Start by clicking here PTO, MPAEF, and the District.
