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 advantages. It all begins with the community coming together and working for a common cause. Local schools depend on the support and fundraising provided by the PTA each year, more so now than ever before. Here are just a few benefits:
There is no better way to know what is happening in your school. Discover great resources – the PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
Tap into a Network
PTA functions provide opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, build a support network and discuss parenting issues that are on your mind.
Watch Yourself Grow
By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences and personal confidence. It is an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause.
Because PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions and suggest change more effectively at your child’s school.
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.
By getting involved at your child’s school you will be part of the solution, helping to make positive changes. Local PTAs play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs and social events – all vital to a school’s success.
Be a Role Model
By becoming a PTA member, you will be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education!
