5 REASONS TO JOIN PTSA

1) Benefit your child!     
Research shows that children perform better when parents are involved both at home and at school.
 
2) Get connected!
There's no better way to know what's happening at school.
 
3) Be a role model!
By becoming a PTSA member, you'll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
 
4) Tap into a network!
PTSA connects you to other parents and teachers through meetings, events and communications, helping to build a sense of community.
 
5) Witness improvement!
By getting involved in PTSA you'll be part of the solution -- helping to make positive changes to your child's educational environment.
 
You DON'T have to volunteer. 
You DON'T have to come to meetings. 
All you have to do is care about your kids and making their middle school years the best they can be!
