The Larchmont Elementary School PTA is a local unit of the Virginia State PTA, which is in turn a branch of the National Congress of Parents and Teachers, also known as the National PTA. The Larchmont Elementary School PTA works in partnership with NPS teachers and administrators to support the school’s educational goals through fundraising and volunteerism. The association is structured according to the Larchmont Elementary School PTA Bylaws which define procedures for the election of PTA officers, the establishment of PTA committees, member voting rights, and budgeting and spending.
