PTA Affairs

The SLJ PTA strives to support and advocate for our children by partnering with staff, families, and the wider community to create a safe and healthy learning environment where students can excel and feel confident in themselves.


SLJ PTA Goals for 2016 – 2017

  • Provide support and resources to the school for the benefit and educational growth of the children.
  • Nurture and enhance the cooperative working relationship that exists between the parents and staff of our school.
  • Promote social activities that heighten school spirit, encourage family togetherness, and promote humanitarian efforts within our community.
  • Increase interest, involvement, and understanding of the PTA business by providing opportunities and training for parents to participate in school governance and decision-making. 
  • Conduct purposeful fundraising to support programs and events at SLJ.
