    Why Join the PTA?

    Just by joining PTA, you show your children that school matters and you are invested in their success – and their future. Here are just a few of the good things about joining PTA:

    Get connected.  There’s no better way to know what’s happening in schools or to develop relationships with teachers and principal.

    Speak up.  PTA gives families and community members a “seat at the table” when important school decisions are being made.

    Tap into a network. PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind. It gives you a forum to discuss/share ideas, concerns and experiences.

    Watch yourself grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause - your child and all children in the community.

    Witness improvement. By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes.

    Be a role model. By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.

    Be A Part Of Something Bigger. The PTA plays an important role in generating much-needed funds for a number of critical requirements including providing building improvements, social events and curriculum-based programs (Technology, Environmental Education, Visual and Performing Arts, Library Services, etc.).
