LMPS PTO News: Fundraising and Homecoming Week


The new Lakeland school is hoping to raise $20,000 for school projects, according to Cindy Davis, LMPS (Lakeland Middle Preparatory School) PTO president.

“We are very excited to be part of the very first PTO to support LMPS, and we are requesting your support for several initiatives at the school:  funding grants for teachers, stocking up our Makerspace with art and STEM supplies and providing special programs and events at the school. As a new school, we still have great need for new materials.  As a PTO, our goal is to raise $20,000.”

Mrs. Davis noted the fundraiser does not involve any selling, organizing or even to run laps. And she encouraged all to give to the fundraiser, even those without children at LMPS.Donate in the following ways:
