Paulding Co. Council of PTAs
Who can join the PTA?
Anyone and everyone who cares about children can join PTA. Our membership includes parents, stepparents, grandparents, teachers, staff members, administrators, friends, neighbors, and community members. Everyone can be and should be a stakeholder in the education process and the future of all children.
I’d like to be involved, but I can’t afford the time.
Many people think belonging to PTA means they have to volunteer dozens of hours each week. You can be a PTA member and not volunteer. PTA appreciates everyone’s membership, whether or not that member volunteers, because each member increases PTA’s ability to advocate for children.
Why should I join PTA?
The main reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit children. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more advantages...
Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
Discover Great Resources. The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
Tap into a Network. Parenting is not easy—it helps to share ideas, concerns and experiences with other parents and educators in the community. PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind.
Speak Up. Because the PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions. PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
Witness Improvement. By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. Local PTAs play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs, and social events—all vital to a school’s success.
Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.Type your paragraph here.
