Why should I join PTA?
- Be in the Know. PTA helps you keep up with what is happening in your school and how you can support your child’s education.
- Build Relationships. PTA connects you to other families through meetings, events, and communications, and helps build a sense of community.
- Support a great cause. By volunteering to be a room parent, committee member or PTA volunteer you will have the opportunity to use and expand your skills and talents to benefit children and the school. Whether you have a little time or a lot, your help is always welcome.
- Speak up. Because PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, we can help you effectively suggest change in your child’s school.
- Help your child succeed. PTA fosters parent involvement. Parent involvement has been proven by decades of research to be the greatest predictor of student success.
- Be a role model. The most important reason to join the PTA is the impact you will make in your child’s life and educational experience!
