About

The Seven Lakes High School Parent Teacher Student Association (SLHS PTSA) is an organization dedicated to serving the entire SLHS community, including the faculty, staff, parents, and, most important, our students. We support and enhance the education of our students through volunteer service, teacher appreciation, parent involvement, and educational and student programs. By providing financial and volunteer resources, we are able to help supplement the educational experience at SLHS.

As the Education Booster Club for Seven Lakes,

we encourage all parents, teachers, and students to get involved!
