AtoZ Connect is the web based system that Lakewood ES PTA uses to maintain online family, student, staff and membership information. A printed copy of the directory will be distributed to PTA members! It is critical that you sign-up and verify the accuracy of your family information to be published in the online and printed directory. (Note: The preference and information that you set in AtoZ Connect will override any previous request that your family has submitted to MCPS. Hence, this is your last chance to verify if there is any typo and/or omit certain info to be released!)
In the 2021-22 academic year, AtoZ Connect has a new platform and requires EVERYONE to create a new account (even if you have done so in past years). Please follow these steps below:
