Membership Drive

Each year, the Laurel Lane PTA will have membership tables set-up at the Open House and the Back to School events since the beginning of the school year is generally the time that parents think about joining the PTA.  However, you may join at any time simply by filling out the attached Membership Form and paying your dues.  We want to personally invite all parents, guardians, grandparents, teachers, staff members and community members who are interested in supporting Laurel Lane Elementary School to join the PTA for the 2017-2018 school year!

The Laurel Lane PTA 2017-2018 annual dues are $6.00 for an individual membership or $11 for a family membership (two adults in same household).  This includes the required $2.00 National PTA and the $1.75 Virginia PTA dues as well.
