“Together we are a powerful voice for children. With your help, we can continue to work toward PTA's goal of a quality education and nurturing environment for every child.” ~National PTA​

PTA's Mission:

The overall purpose of PTA is
“To make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.”

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 advantages. Here are just a few:

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

Watch Yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences and personal confidence. It’s an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause.

Help Your Child Succeed. PTA fosters parent involvement. Parent involvement has been proven by three decades of research to be the greatest predictor of student success.

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