Membership in the PTA affords you the following great benefits:
- An opportunity to get involved with your child’s school experience
- An opportunity to save on everyday purchases via:
- Voting rights at general PTA meetings
- The privilege to chair a committee
$15 for one parent, $20 total for two parents.
Almost $12 of your membership dues goes into our operating budget to help fund a variety of programs for students and families. The remainder goes to state and national dues.
All PTA members must renew annually to receive benefits. Join anytime, it’s never too late!
If I join, do I have to attend the monthly meetings?
No! Meetings are a great way to make your voice heard, but attendance is optional. Most PTA meetings consist of the PTA Board members, active committee chairs, certain staff, a few other parents, and a smattering of young siblings.
Of course, we’d like to see more members at the meetings to get more feedback and suggestions for the direction of our PTA, but we understand that people are busy.
If I join, will you hassle me to volunteer?
We prefer to call it ‘strongly encourage’ and, realistically, we’ll do that whether you join or not. Our great programs only happen with the help of our active and diverse parent community.
We want you to be involved, get in the school, meet other parents, build a network, share your talents, and deepen relationships. Parent engagement is a key indicator of student success, so let’s make it fun! The more, the merrier – so volunteer already!
