Oak Lawn Parent Teacher Group (PTG)
The Oak Lawn Parent Teacher Group (PTG) is a forum for parents and teachers of Oak Lawn’s students to come together and help our Eagles Soar! The PTG works together to raise funds, enrich student education, and build a sense of community.
With the recent changes in the district, as well as within Oak Lawn, it is an exciting time to join the PTG. Oak Lawn’s faculty and staff is motivated to find new programs and initiatives that can target the younger grades remaining at Oak Lawn. It is our hope that this enhanced focus will also inspire others to bring their energy and ideas to the PTG. Below is an overview of the various committees within the PTG as well as general membership information.
Ideas and assistance from outside the committees are encouraged and appreciated. These can be shared at the meetings occurring throughout the year, Oak Lawn PTG on Facebook, or via email. Communication and participation are the keys to reaching our goals! There are many opportunities to help and volunteer, and all effort is appreciated. Please friend the Oak Lawn PTG Facebook page for periodic notifications and updates. You voice can also be heard by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The fundraising committee is dedicated to finding and executing ways to raise money for the school. Some favorites from last year were: The Eagle has Landed, the Fall Walk-a-Thon, Book Fairs, Holiday Shop, Paint Night, and various company sponsorships. One quick way you can help raise funds is by registering your Stop & Shop card with the A+ Rewards page (our code is 07565).
The Grant Committee is a great opportunity for those who want to help, but are not available during school hours. Since many of the available grants are dependent on specific programs, it is a great way to stay in touch with programs and initiatives planned by the school. Members will spend time researching possible grant opportunities for Oak Lawn. Did you know, many corporations offers grants for schools in their community, or the communities of their employees? Does your employer offer volunteer grants?
As the name suggests, the mission of the Sunshine Committee is to brighten Oak Lawn School. This team works to spread joy, show appreciation, and build community. These are the members that plan and execute social events, and look for opportunities to show appreciation for the hard work of the faculty, staff, and parents.
Education enhancement and enrichment are key aspects of the Enrichment Committee. Childhood is a time to explore the world and spark curiosity. Enrichment Committee members will look for opportunities to provide increased exposure to various disciplines including the cultural arts, STEM, and the social sciences. This exposure can take many forms including, but not limited to: speakers, in-school activities, and field trips.
