Enjoy the Benefits. The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Student Association is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more advantages. Here are just a few:
Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
Discover Great Resources. The PTSA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
Tap into a Network. Parenting is not easy—it helps to share ideas, concerns and experiences with other parents and educators in the community. PTSA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind.
Watch Yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTSA, you gain valuable experiences. It’s an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause—your child and all children in the community.
Speak Up. Because the PTSA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions. PTSA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
Witness Improvement. By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. Local PTSAs play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs, and social events—all vital to a school’s success.
Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTSA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
If you say that you do not have time for PTSA, please know that we are not asking for you to volunteer. Simply by becoming a member you empower the PTSA to do more for your child, it is that simple. If you would like to volunteer we would be honored to have you, but that is not what joining the PTSA is about.
We thank you and your child thanks you!
