Why PTA?

The #1 reason to join PTA is to benefit your child.  There are many ways to accomplish this.

Financial Support
Your PTA Membership and/or donation provides the school with the valuable extras that regular funding does not provide.  By pledging your financial support and raising our membership, you are showing your child that you value his/her education. Part of the PTA membership price does go to State and National PTA.  They are the ones that advocate for our children at higher levels in the nation. Many of the benefits that our children receive today, such as universal kindergarten, school lunch programs, child seat laws, and a juvenile justice system were accomplished as a result of the PTA mission.

Volunteering is a great way to show support to students, teachers, and the school.  It is also a great way to get to know other parents and to know what is going on at the school.  You will get to know the teachers and students who interact with your child everyday, all while helping to provide a necessary service to the school.  Whether you are a Room Representative, a PAL, or a volunteer at certain events, your help is needed and appreciated!

Participate in Activities
Just attending any of the activities at the school greatly benefit students.  Helping them get ready for Bike Rodeo, attending the class parties, coming to Carnival etc. all show that you think they are special!

Provide a Service
Do you have a green thumb?  Are you good at carpentry?  Are you gifted at asking for donations?  Your PTA can find just the right project for your talent
