Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
Long Lake Elementary School PTO invites all parents to get involved in school activities and events and/or considering becoming a member of the PTO board. The PTO works throughout the year to bring quality enrichment opportunities to our students as well as raise funds for student programming.
The PTO could not run without you, our parent volunteers! Please consider donating just an hour or two of your time this year. Every bit of talent and enthusiasm you can share, every small block of time you can give…it all makes a big difference for our kids and our school!

Want an easy way to earn money for our school? Below is a list of simple but meaningful ways you can help make a difference. Many of these fundraisers involve things that we already do each day…like grocery shopping…and they’ve raised thousands of dollars for our students over the years!
- E-Waste Recycling - Recycling boxes are on-site at school and folks can send their friends/family to our site for free shipping labels at: www.planetgreenrecycle.com/longlake as well as our ink cartridge store: www.planetgreenrecycle.com/longlake
- Box Tops for Education - Clip the Boxtop label from qualified products (there are LOTS of them!) and send them in to your child’s teacher or drop them off in the collection drawer located in the office. Each label is worth 10 cents for our school! (Please be kind to our label counters and trim your labels. Go to the Box Tops for Education website for more information, bonus Boxtops, coupons, etc.
- ShoeBox Recycling – Bring in your paired, wearable shoes and drop them off in the cardboard boxes located in the lobby. Community Recycling will distribute them globally to those in need and, in return, Long Lake gets $.50 for each pound of shoes we donate!
