About PTA

Parents supporting teachers to enrich our children’s educational experience.

It’s what we do as PTA members.  From providing beautification support for the schoolyard and indoor common areas to supplying the Math Excel and Accelerated Reader programs for our students, PTA gives families a chance to be involved in nearly any way that suits them.  It takes a lot of funding to make all these efforts a success.  Monetary funding from family contributions, fundraisers and support from local business partners make these programs possible.  At least as important as the funding, is the army of family members who volunteer to help.  It takes people like YOU sharing time and talent.  Thank you for your interest in PTA and in enriching our children’s educational experience.
