Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA)



Parent Teacher Student Associations (PTSAs) provide youth members with the opportunity to make a difference by developing leadership skills, learning about the legislative process, increasing their self-esteem, and contributing to the school and community. In turn, adult PTSA members gain a new perspective for program development and youth leadership development and acquire a better understanding of the youth of today. 

  • Joining PTSA does not mean you need to volunteer your time, certainly if you have time we would love to have you volunteer. 
  • Joining PTSA is giving you and your student a voice and the ability to participate and help with student and teacher initiatives throughout the 2023-2024 school year. 

We would love for everyone to become a member and be an advocate for our students.
