Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does the PTA just host fundraisers?
    The PTA is focused on being a resource for students, parents, and teachers. Though it is essential that we raise funds each year to achieve our goals, fundraising makes up no more than one-third of the activities we coordinate. We host a variety of activities that are both fun for families and engaging for students that are either free or low-cost to all participants.
  • How much time do I have to commit to being a member of PTA?
    Membership in PTA can involve as much or as little time as you have to offer. There is no wrong or right way to be involved – anything you can give, whether it’s time or money, will support your child’s potential.
  • Isn't PTA a social club for stay-at-home moms?
    PTA is for everyone! Parents, guardians, students, teachers, grandparents, administrators, school board members, aunts, uncles, community members, etc. PTA membership is open, without discrimination, to anyone who believes in and supports the mission, purposes, and principles of PTA. While some of the work done by PTA may appear purely social - including family engagement events that are organized to strengthen the school community - much of PTA's work focuses on funding essential school resources and curriculum needs, as well as advocating at the local, state, and national levels, impacting decisions affecting your child's health, safety, and quality of education.
  • How does PTA ensure it represents every child and family at the school?
    We encourage every family in the school to become a PTA member to support the success of their child. We want a diverse membership base that reflects all of the families and needs of students at the school. PTA strengthens connections between your family, your child’s classmates and their families and teachers to build a thriving and inclusive community for everyone.
