    Parents are one of Lusher’s greatest strengths and greatest resources. The families in our diverse community bring the extra energy and creativity needed to push Lusher’s mission even further by staying involved in a variety of activities on our school campuses and within the larger community.

    Every parent and teacher affiliated with Lusher is automatically a member of the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA).

    With help from our PTSA, new fundraising and volunteering ideas are brainstormed and refined to consistently improve life at Lusher. Any PTSA member can attend PTSA meetings and sign up to work on various fundraising activities.

    Although fundraising is a vital function of the PTSA, our support reaches beyond to assist the school in many other ways, including:

    • Community building
    • Parent work days
    • Help in the classroom/tutoring
    • Office help
    • Creation of the Lusher Letter
    • Room parents
    • Tech support

    Money raised by the PTSA built the Goldring Performing Arts Center at Lusher Lower School and helped with several renovations at the Fortier campus. In addition, money raised by the PTSA aids in providing professional development to faculty.

    For more information on how to get involved, contact Emily Palit, PTSA President at
