Join PTA For Your Child

Notes from the Backpack Podcast

Today, PTA’s role is more important than ever... connecting parents, teachers and administrators, and supporting critical school needs. We want every family in our schools to join PTA, because we can do more together than apart.

There are many ways and reasons to join—check them out below!

PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
