What is a PTA?
The PTA, or Parent-Teacher Association, is an organization composed of parents, teachers and staff members that is intended to facilitate participation in a school. The main role of the PTA is to build strong working relationships among parents, teachers and schools, in support of students. This includes recruiting and coordinating volunteers, providing special recognition in awards ceremonies or through other activities, organizing parent education events, planning teacher appreciation activities and much more.

Let’s give back.
