Meet Our Lawson PTO Members

We're just a group of parents and caregivers working together toward a common goal: Creating a better school and educational experience for our children and our teachers, administrators, and support staff.  We're a busy group with lots of initiatives and could always using more help! If you're interested in joining a committee or volunteering at an event, please reach out!
