Why Join the PTA?

The #1 Reason to Join the PTA

is to Benefit Your Child

In doing so, you also help your school.

Guidance to Run Your PTA

Running any parent group can be challenging and sometimes overwhelming. Only PTA offers a Back-to-School Kit and an e-learning webinar library to help PTA leaders become trained and prepared to serve their communities and manage local PTA units. Unaffiliated parent groups do not have this vast set of guides, sample templates and tips to use in their school.



PTA offers email newsletters that keep members up-to-date on the latest grant offers, program updates and advocacy alerts. PTA members know and are prepared for what’s happening in education around the country.


Need help figuring out a problem at your child’s school or want to spread a great idea around? PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences.
