Who is the PTA?

 

 The  PTA is a national non-profit organization that  dedicates itself to  advocating for the health, welfare, and safety of  children, youth, and  families for more than 100 years.  It's their vision to make every  child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and  communities. 

PTA Purpose - 

  • A powerful voice for all children.
  • A relevant resource for families and communities.

  • To promote the welfare of the children and youth in home, school, community, and place of worship.
  • To raise the standards of home life.
  • To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth.
