Parent Teacher Organization

The Lawrenceburg Primary/Central Elementary School PTO has a very successful relationship among parents, students, and staff in the two buildings. The PTO works to provide opportunities for students and for parents to be involved in many ways. We welcome involved parents and thank you for the ways you help us enrich our students’ educational experience at Lawrenceburg. Our PTO is not membership-based and there are no dues. Our success depends on parents’ willingness to volunteer any amount of time that works with their schedules. Day and evening volunteer opportunities are available to fit anyone’s calendar. 

Volunteer Opportunities*

Are you interested in getting involved? We invite you to contact us and/or fill out this brief form to be added to our e-mail list. 

All PTO hosted events and other school events require volunteers to help make them successful. The calendar of events listed below is a sampling of the ways you can get involved. PTO also offers classroom/staff support such as making copies, making flashcards, assembling binders, tie-dying field trip shirts, etc. Let us know if you would like to be added to our e-mail list to receive information regarding volunteer opportunities.

*All volunteers must have a background check on file with the school corporation, which can be obtained at the school’s front office.
