10 REASONS TO GET INVOLVED WITH OUR PTA:
1. It’s good for your child.
Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their school make better grades and have fewer disciplinary problems at school. When parents are plugged in at school, their children do better.
2. It’s important to the school.
Schools are becoming more and more dependent on parent groups. The parent groups are responsible for almost all of the school’s fundraising revenue. They provide support to teachers and administrators, and they create a caring and supportive environment in the school.
3. You’ll get connected.
There is no better way to know what’s going on in the school than to be involved with the PTA. You’ll be first to hear about the important decisions and changes the school is thinking about making, and you will get to know the teachers and administrators on a familiar basis.
4. You’ll be part of a network.
Every PTA function is an opportunity to meet other parents in the same situation as you. You will be connecting with a group of parents who share a common goal of improving the school for their children.
5. You’ll make a difference.
By volunteering with the PTA, you’ll be able to use your skills for a noble cause. The PTA works to establish a supportive and encouraging community for the entire school. The goal is to create the most engaging environment possible for our children.
6. It’s fun!
You’ll connect with a fun group of parents who are all concerned with creating a better environment for their children. You will help plan fun events and programs that the whole family can attend.
7. You’ll be a role model.
You will show your child that not only are they important to you, but their education is as well. They’ll see you taking a stand to make education better for them and their peers, and chances are, they’ll do the same.
8. You’ll help raise necessary funds.
The PTA fundraises to provide more educational services for children. Fundraisers remain important to improving the quality of the school overall, and the PTA makes it possible.
9. It’s flexible.
The PTA has progressed to meet the changing needs of parents. There are a variety of small ways parents can help and be involved in the PTA. Project responsibilities are flexible and can be adjusted to fit with your time constraints.
10. It’s for every parent.
Your voice and opinion matters! It makes a difference when you speak up. Your voice and ideas can help improve the quality of education for your children and their peers. You’ll see the smiles on their faces and know you’ve played a part in making the school a warm and inviting place.
