Go Back2School w/ PTA


Our PTAs help provide the foundation to welcoming, supportive school communities to ensure that every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential. The connections PTA creates between families, teachers and administrators in our school communities are vital to support learning and development.

Many of our children are struggling to return to achievement levels reported before the pandemic. Now more than ever, PTA’s role is necessary to bridge the gaps between school communities and families to help students have the most successful school year possible. Every family in our schools should join PTA, because we can do more together than apart.
