Why Join PTA?

■ The #1 reason to join PTA is to directly benefit your child and their classmates.

■ Get connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school, or to develop a relationship with your child’s teacher and principal.

■ Discover great resources. The PTA offers a variety of programs and materials for students, parents, families, schools and communities.

■ Speak up. PTA gives you a “seat at the table” when important decisions are made about your child’s school.

■ Be a role model. By becoming a PTA member, you’ll demonstrate to your child the importance you place on education.

■ Enjoy substantial benefits. PTA members enjoy exclusive member perks including discounts on school supplies, rental cars, and more.

■ Make a difference! By working together, PTA members have helped advance local, state and national laws and policies to improve the education, health and safety of all children.
