2018 Lanier Parent Teacher Social

The annual Lanier Parent-Teacher-Staff Social is Thursday, October 11, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at The Phoenix on Westheimer, 1915 Westheimer Road, 77098. The Lanier PTO annually sponsors this adults-only gathering as an opportunity for parents to meet and mingle with the Lanier teachers and staff in a fun and casual setting. It’s also a great opportunity to meet and connect with other Lanier parents!

Tickets are $30 for one ticket, $55 for two tickets, and $80 for three tickets (if you’d also like to sponsor a teacher). Each ticket includes dinner and two drinks. Buy your tickets now!!


Also, we like to offer Door Prizes for our Amazing Teachers! If you have an extra gift card (or are willing to purchase one) to a local store that you are not going to use, please drop it off at the front desk and tell them it is for the PTO Social. A $10, $15 or $20 gift card to Starbucks or Target, for instance, is always a great pick me up for our teachers!

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Volunteers

The Lanier PTO hosts luncheons on the second Friday of each month for the teachers and staff of Lanier to recognize all that they do for our students.  The next lunch on is on October 12th.  To learn more, donate and/or volunteer, please visit the online sign-up sheet:


NOTE: All Lanier volunteers must be registered through VIPS: www.houstonisd.org/vips. However, if you had an active VIPS account during the previous school year and had registered as a Lanier volunteer, just present an ID at the front desk or in Office B to be re-activated this year.


Commitment to Excellence 2018-2019

Please consider donating to Lanier’s 2018-2019 Commitment to Excellence campaign.  “CTE” is Lanier PTO’s largest annual fundraiser, and your contribution will go a long way to help ensure the continuing success of Lanier by directly funding programs that benefit your child and Lanier’s learning community.  These programs include additional training and professional development for faculty and staff, campus improvements and beautification, and curriculum and classroom support.  Our goal is to raise $65,000 by October 26th!  Make an ONLINE donation today!
