Lincroft Elementary School PTA
What is the PTA

What is the PTA:


The PTA is a partnership between parents and educators who strive to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of our students within Lincroft Elementary School. Most importantly, it is a forum for parents to obtain knowledge and voice opinions on what is happening in your school.


It's not just about writing a check or sending in money. Yes, fundraising is an important and integral part of the PTA. The funds raised by the PTA help support the enriching in-school programs, field trips, sports equipment, state of the art technology and supplemental educational materials we all want for our children. Fundraising enables the PTA to provide what the school district does not provide. But there are many ways participate in "free" fundraisers that earn money for our school.

The PTA is about so much more than fundraising. It's about being a part of your child's fleeting elementary school experience.
