Back-to-School, Back to PTA

Celebrate Back to School Week September 12–16, 2022. National PTA’s Back-to-School Week will celebrate a reimagined school year for families and school communities across the nation. Throughout the week, the association will share information and resources to help PTA leaders, parents, and teachers plan their school year, engage their communities and support for student wellbeing and learning. Our teachers and students are mostly back in the school building this year—albeit masked up and socially distant. And while health and safety are top of mind, National PTA wants to help make sure you have the tools you need to rock this school year!

We teamed up with Office Depot OfficeMaxBAND and Xplora to make sure you get a great start to the school year. This Back-to-School Week, we’re offering yearlong solutions, resources and program opportunities to help plan your school year, engage your school community and get support for students and families.

The connections PTA creates in our school communities are so necessary. With social distancing protocols in place, PTA’s role is more important than ever as we connect parents, teachers and administrators and support critical school needs. Learn how to lead your PTA virtually.

Our PTAs will ensure that our families and schools have the tools to best support every student’s learning and development. We also want to make sure to care for each child’s social and emotional needs as they adjust to new routines and being back in the physical classroom. Every family in our schools should join PTA, because we can do more together than apart.
