What are the benefits of a PTA?
The TX PTA offers resources that help us run our organization more efficiently. It offers resources that will help us better serve our campus and students. It offers accountability to ensure we remain transparent in our organization, and our operations.
We will have a 501c status that will facilitate donations from businesses. We will have access to guest speakers and other parent education programs, and MUCH more!
Who can join?
ANYONE can join the PTA. It does not commit you to volunteer. Joining the PTA is simply a way to show support of our campus. Even if you are unable to volunteer for events, joining the PTA is a show of support for the programs and events we host. If you would like to volunteer, GREAT! There will be many opportunities in many different capacities. To sign up to volunteer, please visit this link:
Some parents like to stay informed and show support by paying dues and attending meetings. Whether it is being an active participant, or attending meetings, or being supportive by paying dues…It is ALL helpful to the organization.
Why are there dues?
While the dues are nominal, they allow us to all of the above mentioned resources and support for our school. The dues are $10.00 for the whole school year. That is less than a dollar a month! The PTA is not a fundraising organization. There will be some of those, but the true mission is…To make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
We formally invite you…yes YOU, to become a member of the PTA! Being a member means you are supporting our campus and all we do for our school community. Teachers, Staff, and Students need to know we are here for them!
