The Parents’ Council is a part of the LSMSA Foundation and exists to support LSMSA by organizing and sponsoring events throughout the year for current students and faculty.
Students enjoy an annual picnic in the fall, a senior banquet to honor and celebrate the graduating class, and a graduation extravaganza for the entire student body.
Additionally, the Parents’ Council sponsors faculty and staff appreciation week each year to show their gratitude for the employees who teach, coach and mentor their students during their time at LSMSA.
