The Parent Teacher Group is a support system that is structured to offer a social atmosphere to St. Leander School. The parents work together to create a spirit of community within the school and parish. The PTG provides a social atmosphere through various gatherings to incorporate new families into the school and parish community, to assist the school through the implementation of fundraising events, and to provide opportunities for as many parents as possible to participate in school activities.
Open Parent Teacher Group (PTG) Meetings are held in the Computer Lab as noted on the school calendar. Parents are encouraged to attend.
