The LES PTA has established a Scholarship Fund for Field Trips in order to allow every child to attend or participate in class-wide programs such as in-house or off-campus field trips. The child's teacher will determine if the scholarship is warranted based on the teacher's knowledge of the child's financial need. The scholarship may only be used for educational purposes, and may NOT be used for school pictures, yearbooks, or any other optional expense that is not incurred by all students in the class. Requests will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis and are dependent upon PTA budgeted funds being available. The LES PTA reserves the right to deny any scholarship request.

Whenever possible, requests should be submitted at the grade level, not by individual class.

The Scholarship Fund Request Process:

  • The Grade Level Chair completes the PTA Scholarship Fund Request Form for the entire grade level if it is for a field trip or grade-level experience. In other situations, a teacher may complete the form. Forms must be completed 1-2 weeks prior to the need.
  • Place the completed and signed form in the Treasurer folder in the PTA file cabinet in the front office.
  • The PTA Treasurer will determine if funds are available for the request.
  • If the request is approved, the PTA Treasurer will send an email to the grade level chair and the school secretary. The Treasurer will cut a check to Leesville Elementary School for the amount approved and attach it to a copy of the form given to the school secretary.
  • If the request is not approved, the Treasurer will note the reason in an email to the grade level chair or teacher. The Treasurer will also inform the PTA President of the denial and the reason.

For questions or last-minute requests, email the Treasurer at
