Parent Teacher Student Association

The Lakeridge Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) enriches the educational experience of our students and supports the Lakeridge Junior High School community. To do this, the PTSA runs a number of programs throughout the year and helps the students with character development, arts programs, and community involvement.
