Step 3: Celebrate Success
PTA’s process for building successful partnerships is grounded in the National Standards for Family-School Partnerships and consists of three basic steps. The third step is celebrating success as your school sees increased involvement and its impact.
Your successes—big and small—are your PTA’s best form of advertisement. Publish stories in school and district newsletters, send press releases to local media, and post pictures and outcomes online to give stakeholders real-life proof of involvement’s power to improve schools and benefit students. Success stories will show school leaders and current and potential members, donors, and partnering organizations why their involvement and collaboration is critical to student success.
The more you promote your successes, the more people will want to get involved—and the more your children will succeed!
