What is the PTA

  • What is PTA? Why Join PTA?

    The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more PTA advantages:

      • Get Connected

        There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
      • Tap into a Network

        PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind. You can 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.
      • Speak Up

        PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
      • Witness Improvement

        By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. Local PTAs play an important role by supporting building improvements through advocacy and play an important role in fundraising for curriculum based programs and social events.
      • Be a Role Model

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

    For less than 3 cents a day, you can become a PTA member, joining more than 4 million other people who share your interest in issues affecting children. Everyone—parents, educators, students and other citizens active in their schools and communities—is invited to join our not-for-profit parent association.
