The East Lansing High School Parent Council:


  • Assists with the communication between parents/guardians and administrators.  Our high school principal or one of his assistants,  attend the parent council meetings to share updates and gather feedback on current school-related issues.
  • Smooths the transition from middle school to high school and beyond.  Many of our monthly meetings  include speakers on topics useful to parents such as college admission information, vocational training opportunities and mental health.
  • Assists in volunteer support for general all-school needs.  We have a number of volunteer opportunities and will provide a link to a sign-up genius in the weekly e-bulletin.
  • Assists in funding educational enhancements outside the school budget for teachers, such as technology, equipment and traditional learning materials.  This support ranges from purchasing graphing calculators and projector document cameras to providing art supplies and travel expenses for class field trips.

In addition to your time and service, please support Parent Council by making a $25.00 donation now.  So that we can continue to help support our incredible teachers and hard working students in ways that school budget can not.


If you prefer, checks made payable to the ELHS Parent Council may be delivered to the office by your student or through the mail:  Attn: Parent Council, East Lansing High School, 509 Burcham Drive, East Lansing, MI 48823

For more information and a volunteer form which can be printed, filled out and returned to the office, see our Welcome Letter.
