PTSA and Academic Support

Parent support is a key ingredient to delivering a rich, well rounded experience for Las Lomas students. WCEF and Las Lomas PTSA share a common goal: To help provide an exceptional educational experience for our students. We work collaboratively with the school's administration to best utilize financial contributions in accordance with the priorities of the school. As funding responsibilities change and grow, the PTSA investment in academics has increased by $45,000 to include funding of academic courses in math and history. Please consider contributing the requested fair share of $200 through the webstore or by check to Las Lomas PTSA.

Thank you,
Mary Vanderpan and Tricia Murray
Co-PTSA Presidents

PSAT Information


The PSAT will be administered on Saturday, October 18th at 8:00 AM at Las Lomas. It is a practice test for the SAT Reasoning test. The PSAT is highly recommended for juniors, especially those who plan to attend a 4 year college. It is the qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarship Program, when taken in the junior year. The PSAT measures critical reading, math problem-solving (including Algebra and Geometry), and writing skills. Sophomores and juniors should register for the test on the Las Lomas Web Store. The cost of the exam is $25.00.  An official Student Guide, including practice tests, is available in the College/Career Center when you register for the exam.   Register early, as tests are limited. Registration ends Wednesday, October 8.


A PSAT preparation course is offered by Ames Seminar, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the College/ Career Center. Specific information is available in the College/Career Center, or by calling 937-2280.
