2016-2017 PTG EVENTS

To learn about this year's currently scheduled PTG events and activities please visit our PTG Google Calendar on the Welcome Page

We also share information through Back Pack Mail, PTG Monthly Meeting Minutes, the Lapham LookoutMarquette's School Newsletter, PTG Email List, PTG Facebook Group and occasional robo calls.

Join the PTG Email List and/or PTG Facebook Group to stay in the loop! 

To get an idea of the kind of events we have done in the past, please see the event archive below. The events we host each year depend entirely upon volunteer involvement, so please contribute in whatever ways you possibly can, whether it is by attending PTG's monthly meetings, joining a PTG committee, participating on the PTG Board, or volunteering as a "helper bee" as your schedule allows. If you've got more money than time, that works too – keep an eye out for our fundraisers and contribute what you can. It's all important and it all adds up! 

Thank you in advance for your interest and participation in PTG!
