Join the PTA



Research has shown that a major factor attributing to student success is parental involvement.  Sometimes it is hard to believe that your children actually want you to be involved when they try to convince you otherwise.  So, what can you do?  Get involved…


Join the Parent Teacher Association (PTA)


What:   The PTA is a child advocacy association that brings a closer relationship with home and school so that you and your child’s teachers may cooperate together in your child’s education.

Who:    Parents, teachers and community members are encouraged to join.

How:    There is a contact parent, usually the PTA president, for each school.  The school principal or office assistant will help you contact the parent.

Why:    PTA activities are specific to each school and support a variety of functions.


Join the School Site Council (SSC)


What:   Our school has a SSC.  It plays a crucial and active role in planning, budgeting and monitoring the educational program at the school

Who:    The School Site Council is comprised of parents, community members, the school principal, teachers, other school staff and students (when appropriate).

How:    members of the SSC are elected each year.  Even if you are not a member, you may attend meetings to provide support and voice your opinion.  Each SSC has a chairperson.  The school principal or school secretary will help you contact the chairperson.

Why:    Our school is required to have an active School Site Council that meets on a regular basis.  Without the SSC, the school would lose the help of many funding sources that provide programs and materials your child currently enjoys.
