You have chosen your child's school with care-now give your child more of your support by joining your PTA. Studies show that having parents actively involved in a child's schooling raises test scores and increases motivation and interest. Additionally, it assists in improving teaching conditions. In 1997, the PTA was 100 years old; it is the largest volunteer organization for child advocacy in the world. When you join the PTA, you get to know your child's principal and teachers, you learn more about the educational programs and services offered to your child, and you get YOUR voice heard. The PTA is made up of parents like you - people who care about their children and who want the best for them. You will make friends and learn new skills and you will be working for our most precious resources - OUR CHILDREN!
