Why become a Member?
PTA connects families and schools. By joining the PTA you show your children that school matters, and that you are invested in their success. Three decades of research proves that students achieve higher grades, have better attendance and more consistently complete homework when parents are involved – and just the act of joining PTA is a great way to get involved. PTA helps ensure that parents have a seat at the table when important decisions that affect schools are made. PTA works together to improve the education, health and safety of all children.
How do I become a member and/or renew my annual PTA membership?
Complete the attached PTA Membership envelope and turn it into the school office or to your child’s teacher.
What is required to become a member?
Nothing - other than completing the membership form & paying the minimum dues of $10.
Do I have to attend PTA Unit Meetings?

Do I have to Volunteer?
No, but if you would like to, we have several opportunities in which you can. Whether it’s helping with concessions and handing out popcorn at a Family Movie Nights or helping plan our Fall Harvest Festival, big or small, we have the right size volunteer opportunity for you!
Do I have to attend PTA sponsored events?
No. We understand in today’s world that we all have busy schedules - so come to the events that make sense for your family’s schedule. I want to help, but I can’t volunteer or attend meetings.
Can I make a donation to the PTA?
Yes, you can make a direct donation to the PTA anytime and turn it into the school office. You can also include the donation when paying your membership dues. The PTA is a 501c3 non profit charity so donations are tax deductible. Please contact us if you need a receipt of donation or download it from the online portal. Your membership and donations make the activities of the PTA possible. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
If I don’t attend meetings, events or volunteer, why become a PTA member?
No matter your level of participation, your membership is still valuable. Whether it’s participation at an event/meeting or simply the membership dues you paid - all these things allow your PTA to enrich our children’s experience at school. PTA speaks out for all children at many levels; both locally and nationally.
