At LFM, family involvement is highly encouraged and plays a critical role in the lives of LFM students and community. Parents who support LFM, with whatever time and talent they can offer, provide a priceless enhancement to the school’s efforts to meet the needs of each child.
We support and encourage variety and flexibility from year to year if that’s what works for you. Our motivation is not from obligation but from enthusiasm and a desire to support the school and the development of our children. Find the area(s) and amount of involvement that is right for you, and jump in!
