About Us


All parents and caregivers of Lapham-Marquette students are members of the Lapham-Marquette Parent-Teacher Group (PTG). Welcome to our wonderful school community!


Lapham-Marquette PTG promotes educational, enriching events and activities for Lapham and Marquette students; offers parents a forum to learn about and discuss education and school-related matters; promotes community building activities; and provides support to Lapham and Marquette teachers, staff and families. 

Why participate in the PTG? 

  • Inform yourself about what’s going on at school

  • Voice your opinion about our children’s education

  • Improve and expand our children’s educational opportunities

  • Connect with other parents and staff

  • Build a stronger, healthier community!


The easiest and best way to stay connected is to join our PTG Email List and/or PTG Facebook Group. Facebook is especially good for quick questions. Try attending a PTG Meeting too! It's a great way to meet engaged families, teachers, principals, and staff.

We welcome you all to our community!
