2013 Take Your Family to School Week Grant Recipients

National PTA is proud to provide grants to 100 PTAs across the country to increase family engagement and safety awareness through PTA Take Your Family to School Week®, February 18–22.

The special week encourages PTAs to open its doors to families so that they are engaged in their child’s education and overall well-being. Local PTAs host family-focused events throughout the week with an emphasis, this year, on safety at home and at play.

In its eighth year, National PTA’s Take Your Family to School Week program focuses on Safety at Home and at Play. National PTA and Safe Kids Worldwide will supply parent groups with resources to help them raise awareness of dangerous safety risks, like riding a bike without a helmet, being exposed to dangerous toxins, and not knowing how to recognize concussions. The tools will also help parent groups work with the community to demonstrate and exhibit that awareness by educating them on avoiding these dangers and incorporating safe habits, like hand washing, being safer on the playground and cognizant of traffic when riding a bike.

PTA’s Take Your Family to School Week is sponsored by the AXA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of AXA US, and a Proud National Sponsor of PTA.
