PTA In Our Schools
What is the PTA? The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is an
organization that brings parents and teachers together so they can work
towards improving the lives and education of students. Over 6.5 million
people belong to PTAs nationwide, making it the largest child-advocacy
volunteer association. Simply, a PTA is a group of adults, both men and
women, affiliated with a school that have organized to work to help
children thrive and learn — whether that means fundraising for school
supplies, educating parents, helping teachers, or fighting for
legislation to ensure every child gets a high-quality education.
What kinds of things does the PTA do at Sylvan?
You will recognize many of the following programs/events that are supported and
funded through the PTA:
How do I join the PTA? Simply fill out the form at the bottom of the page and return it to school with your child. The membership fee is $10.00 per voting member and $14.00 for 2 voting members in the same household. (Cash or check written out to Sylvan Ave PTA) Return it in an envelope marked “PTA membership.”
Will I have to attend many
meetings and volunteer often? The PTA Committee would love for you to
attend meetings and volunteer WHEN YOU CAN. The more hands on support we
have, the more all of our children benefit. However, it is not
mandatory for you to do either. Many of us work full time jobs and have
other responsibilities. By simply joining the PTA, you will be showing
How can I get more involved? Our monthly meetings are posted in our school calendar and reminder notices are sent by e-mail or home in school folders. You can also check the box at the bottom of the form stating that you are interested in volunteering. We have many committees and events that could use your input and support.
We are looking forward to a great school year!
