Welcome, NLE PTA! 



Hello Northlake Families, 


I’m so excited to get the 2021-2022 school year started. Last year was hard! And,  the things I’m most looking forward to will be welcoming all of our students back to school in person this year and getting back to some of our in person events. I missed not being able to see our virtual students and I missed connecting with our parents and families at events like Back to School Night, Fall Carnival, etc. While RISD continues to monitor COVID numbers and is working closely with local health authorities to be sure we have the most up-to-date safety protocols in place, I’m optimistic that we will be able to have some of these events. Please keep in mind that some things may look different, but we’ll try our best to have families included and engaged as best we can, while being as safe as possible. Our theme this year is Good Better Best. We know we have lots of work to do this year and we are going to focus on growth for all students. We’ll be working with students to set goals for themselves and then we’ll monitor those goals and celebrate growth! I cannot wait to see all of you at our Back to School Night on August 12th.

Getting started: Membership Directory



As parents sign up, a database of information forms. If you choose, you can allow members to see this information online— via your online directory. Privacy controls are important, so everyone involved determines how much information is shared:

You control:

  • who has access to your directory
  • who is included in the directory
  • which information from your database should be published
  • preamble for the directory

Parents control:

  • their own passwords
  • can update information at any time
  • choose which information will be published


 This information can also be accessed through our optional app:



Parents love the added convenience of accessing the directory from the Membership Toolkit App. The app includes your directory and calendar —and links to your site through their internet browser.


The app is available free in the Apple Store and in Google Play. Download it one time for all of the organizations that you are affiliated with that are using Membership Toolkit. If you belong to 4 organizations that are using Membership Toolkit, when you log in to the app you will see all four organizations presented and you can toggle between organizations.
