WHY JOIN PTA?
There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
PTA functions provide opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, build rapport and discuss parenting issues that are on your mind.
By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences and personal confidence. It’s an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause.
Because PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions and more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
PTA fosters parent involvement which has been proven by three decades of research to be the greatest predictor of student success.
PTA plays an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs, social events – all vital to a school’s success.
By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
A strong PTA needs the support of parents, family members, teachers, school staff, and community members. Anyone who cares about children belongs in the PTA!
The PTA appreciates everyone’s membership, whether or not a member volunteers. You will not be sucked in to ta black hole of volunteering.
You do not have to serve on the PTA board or chair a committee to join the PTA. Your wonderful support will suffice!
Your PTA membership will be good for the entire school year and will need to be renewed when the new school year begins.
If you are unable to volunteer your time, please consider becoming a member of the PTA which helps us financially. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that your support helps fund events and activities for the children throughout the school year.
There will be opportunities to get involved, but there is no pressure. Just pass along the signup sheet if you are unable to participate. No judgement here!
Your fellow PTA members are family and community members who want to support the kids and the school. Most members are juggling bills, household chores, kids, sports, and homework, just like you!
Not only does membership put you in direct communication with other parents and teachers, it shows your child that you are interested and invested in their educational experience.
The PTA always wants and needs more volunteers and members. If you choose to volunteer, you decide your time commitment.
New ideas are always welcome! It is important to keep our PTA fresh and exciting!
