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:
There's no better way to know what's happening in your school.
Discover Great Resources
The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents and students.
Tap into a Network
PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, build rapport, and discuss 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.
PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child's school.
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.
Enjoy Substantial Benefits
Individuals and local units can take advantage of a host of benefits from PTA membership including discounts and offers from member benefit providers and sponsors, magazine subscriptions, leadership training, e-newsletters and much more.
