Your membership in the PTA has a direct impact on your children and the quality of our school. The PTA has the ability to help make school a better place for children to learn, by providing financial and other resources to our teachers and staff, and programs and events for our students and families. By becoming a PTA member, you can help identify the needs of the school and develop solutions that include advocating for student needs, and bringing enriched educational opportunities to the school.
What is the PTA?The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is a national grass roots organization that brings parents and teachers together so they can work towards improving the lives and education of children. Simply, a PTA is a group of adults affiliated with a school that have organized to work to help children thrive and learn - whether that means fundraising for enrichment opportunities, educating parents, helping teachers, or fighting for legislation to ensure every child gets a high quality education.
