Gift Wrap


The gift wrap sale is held in the fall, before the holidays. Students bring home catalogs full of high quality wrapping paper, housewares and other gifts. Orders can be placed online or via order form.

Dance Party


Born from a dance tradition at Laurelhurst, formerly known as the Sock Hop, the new and improved Dance Party allows students from all grade levels to come together with their parents and friends and dance to some loud music in the gym. Food and drink are served, and a fun time is had by all.

Playground Improvement


Covered structure city and PPS permits are complete, and contracts have been signed! Construction can take place during the school year, and the target for installation is spring 2022. We are taking donations now to cover increased costs and will update with any remaining fundraising gap in early January. Thank you to everyone who donated their time, money, and support to get us to this point!

Fill your bag (about 75-100 containers, if filled with glass, about half full, 20 lb. limit). Once full, take your bag (limit of two at a time) to a BottleDrop Center. The closest centers are the Hollywood and Hawthorne Fred Meyer. Scan the barcode on the bag to unlock the BottleDrop door, drop you bag in & you are all done!
