If you have specific questions related to vaping that you would like to hear addressed, please email them to Jenn Wright at no later than 5pm on Thursday, October 25th so that we can be sure our speakers can answer them on Monday.

Join the PTA
Have you joined the PTA for the 2019-2020 school year? Just by joining you help provide resources for academic and student programs at Lanier. Although we welcome all parent participation, volunteering and attendance at meetings is not required. Go to and select "memberships". 
No Fuss Fundraiser
Participate in our No Fuss Fundraiser! We know our families have busy schedules, which is why we won’t ask your student to sell anything to raise money for our school through the PTA. Instead, we are asking each family to consider making a $20 donation on top of their membership dues. 100% of your donation is TAX DEDUCTIBLE and 100% of your contribution goes to support the Lanier Community. **Please note, any amount big or small is welcome and appreciated ($20 is not the required amount)** While on the website joining the PTA, just click "donations" on the left side of your screen.
