What is the PTA?
The Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) is a collaborative organization comprised of parents, teachers, and staff working together to enhance the educational experience of students within a school community.
What do we do?
PTAs play a vital role in supporting schools by organizing events, fundraising, advocating for educational policies, and fostering a sense of community among families and school staff. We have recently raised money for a new stage and lighting, and we are now on a mission to resurface and upgrade all three school playgrounds!
