THANK YOU to our generous friends who donated to

The Partnership Plan and Lake Elmo PTA

during the Pony Up for Kids! campaign.


With your help, we raised $2,165!


Thank You!

The Lake Elmo PTA online auction was a great success! With your help, we raised more than $4,200 that will put much-needed resources in our classrooms, gym and media center!


Winning bidders may pick up their items during a drive-thru event in the front parking lot at Lake Elmo Elementary on Saturday, October 24th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. If you paid online with a credit card, please bring your ID when picking up your items. You may also pay in person with cash or check (payable to Lake Elmo Elementary PTA). Any items not picked up at that time may be picked up in the school’s main office starting Monday, October 26th.


THANK YOU for participating and for your continued support for our school!

Despite having to cancel our spring carnival, the Lake Elmo PTA still had a successful 2019-2020 year, thanks to the generosity of our families and the community. 


In addition to providing stipends to teachers and specialists; funding programs and services, such as field trips and our artist in residence, Karron Nottingham; and providing free family events like the Back to School Block Party, movie nights, and Midwinter Madness; this year we were also able to provide:

  • More than $12,000 for technology, which includes a touch display monitor for the Media Center, Chromebooks, document cameras, as well as improvements to the movie projector in the gym.
  • $6,000 to replace and buy leveled library books for K-2nd grade classrooms
  • $1,100 for wobble stools for 5th graders 
  • $430 for reusable book bags for the Spanish immersion classrooms



When you shop and select Lake Elmo Elementary PTA as your charity of choice, a small percentage of your purchase price will go to Lake Elmo PTA.  It is the same as shopping on Amazon’s regular website and you may use your existing Amazon account. 

NOTE: You must be on in order for Lake Elmo PTA to receive the donation.
