Special events round out a PTA calendar by supporting your community in connection, appreciation and education. Some of the most popular PTA programs include:

  • Back to School Week
    It’s the most wonderful time of year for PTA! The beginning of the school year is an unofficial holiday season and teachers, parents and students are filled with anticipation and excitement for the school year ahead.
  • Healthy Lifestyles Month (November) The Healthy Lifestyles program offers educational resources and engagement opportunities that inform students and families on ways to make better-informed health decisions.
  • Take Your Family To School Week
    Encourage families to get more involved in their child’s education! Celebrate National PTA's Take Your Family to School Week by hosting an event at your school centered around Health & Safety, Literacy, Digital Learning, or STEM.
  • Safer Internet Day
    Safer Internet Day is an international education and awareness-raising effort, celebrated in over 100 countries. The day brings communities together to address online issues such as cyberbullying and social networking for a safer and better internet.
