About the PTO


Dear Lakeshore Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the PTO, I would like to say THANK YOU to all of our Lakeshore families for your support throughout the year, whether it was donating your time to volunteer or by participating in our fundraisers and our Family Fun Nights and events! Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

As we finish out this school year, we look ahead to what opportunities we can offer to Lakeshore students and families in the 2024/2025 school year. Next year there are several open positions available for PTO officers and committee chairs. Please consider volunteering to be a part of the Lakeshore PTO leadership. If you are interested in hearing more about an open position please email us at fdllakeshorepto@gmail.com.

We appreciate any amount of time you are able to give to support our organization, which supports Lakeshore students and staff. We are only able to provide opportunities for our children through the support and volunteering of our families. If we cannot fill the open spots listed, we will need to re-evaluate the need for each program to continue at Lakeshore in the 2024-2025 school year. Your ideas, time, and talents truly are needed to make Lakeshore PTO a success. Thank you for your consideration!

Thank you,

Tamm Waidelich
