WHO WE ARE

The Lebanon Trail PTSA is a member of the Texas PTA and National PTA. The Parent Teacher Association (National PTA) is the largest child advocacy volunteer organization which speaks for the interest of all children and their safety, health, welfare, and education. PTSA is a partnership at the high school level between parents, students, and educators who strive to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of the students within the school. It is also a forum for parents to obtain knowledge and voice their opinions about what is happening in their school. 

The Lebanon Trail PTSA's mission and purpose align with the Texas PTA's.
