become a member join today graphic

The Parent Teacher Association’s (PTA) main goal is to support our school and our students. We do so by raising money for class field trips, educational assemblies, scholarships, classroom supplies and family nights that benefit our children and our school.

Everyone is welcome to join, including parents, relatives, teachers and staff. We need volunteers to help with book fairs, food drives, school/community events, and appreciation days for teachers and staff.

Reflections Program

Accepting Imperfection  Reflections: Explore the arts and express yourself!

“The Reflections Program provides students with the opportunity to create works of art for fun and recognition. Reflections can also serve as an outlet for students to creatively explore what they are learning in the classroom. When children express themselves through words, pictures, music, dance, film, and other art media, they grow intellectually; they learn to analyze their thoughts and feelings. The Reflections Program helps parents encourage the creativity, self-discovery, and lifelong learning of their children. Supporting the PTA Reflections Program is one way you can increase student achievement, foster student talents, and promote the arts.”

More About PTA Membership

Is PTA membership only for moms?

The PTA is for everyone! Parents, guardians, students, teachers, grandparents, administrators, school board members, aunts, uncles, community members, etc…

Do I need to have a child at the school to join the PTA?

PTA membership is open, without discrimination, to anyone who believes in and supports the mission, purposes and principles of PTA.

Myth: I do not need to join PTA this year, my child is remote or hybrid learning.

You do still need to join because just like schools, PTAs are moving to a virtual space and continuing to connect families, teachers and administrators and supporting critical school needs.

If I join the PTA do I need to volunteer?

If you want to volunteer, that’s great, but your support as a member is enough.

Is it true you can only join PTA in-person at an event or at the school?

No. Many PTAs now offer an online option to make it quick and easy for people to join.

Can I only join at the beginning of the school year?

You can join a PTA anytime!

Can I join more than one PTA?

There is no limit to the number of PTAs or PTSAs you can support.

Does PTA membership expire?

You need to join every year. Even though membership generally runs annually July – June, you can join anytime during the year.

Myth: The PTA is only a social club.

PTA is a membership-based advocacy association. Local PTAs build community between schools and families. Join to have your voice heard!

Do all PTA activities have to happen at school or on campus?

PTAs can host their meetings, events, programs, etc. anywhere! For example: libraries, community centers, recreation centers, outside, virtually, etc.
