What is the PTA?

  • What is the PTA?
    PTA stands for Parent Teacher Association.

    Our mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

    OUR PTA is:

    • A powerful voice for all children,
    • A relevant resource for families and communities,
    • A strong advocate for the education and well-being of every child.


    • To promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school and community;
    • To be the connection between teachers, families and our students.
    • To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of children and youth;
    • To develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for all children and youth the highest advantages in physical, mental and social education.
