What is the PTA?  Why join PTA?  The number ONE reason to join the Parent/Teacher Association (PTA) is to benefit your child.  In doing so, you also help your school.  But there are many more PTA advantages including:

Get Connected
      There's no better way to know what's happening in your school.

Discover Great Resources

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
