  • It is good for your children!  You are your child’s most important role model. Your involvement in the PTA shows that you value their education and research shows that students with involved parents have higher test scores and fewer disciplinary problems.
  • It is good for you! As a PTA member, you have a voice in how we support the school and you have an audience with school officials.  You will meet like-minded people and make new friends, you an use your skills and hobbies and you will know what is going on!
  • It is good for the school!  With cutbacks in school budgets, the PTA provides a supplement to the school budget
