See the "PTA Membership Form" section below to find out just how easy it is to become a PTA member.


Why Join?

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a organization that brings parents and teachers together so they can work towards improving the lives and education of students.  With your membership, it enables the PTA to provide each student with art, music, literacy and enriching cultural art assemblies, as well as the benefits of all the other enhancement programs the PTA provides.
 
We meet once a month and encourage all members to attend, but it is not required.  Additional volunteering opportunities are available in the classroom, around the school, and sometimes activities or events outside of the school day if it better suits your schedule.  Your involvement is ultimately up to you - but please keep in mind that a meaningful contribution to a PTA project does not have to be time-consuming. 
 
The GOOD thing is, you have the option to become involved on whatever level you choose.  Join the distribution list on our Home Page to receive emails about PTA events and participate in as many as you like! 
 
The GREAT thing is, your child sees your time spent as a commitment to both them and their school!



Where Is Your Money Going?

The Cedar Fork Elementary PTA works hard to make sure your money is spent wisely on programs, activities, events and technology that will enhance your child’s school experience and help build a family-community environment.  Some items of note are:

  

Grant Programs
Funds available for Teachers and Staff to start/continue a program or club during the school year.  Some of the projects funded in the past are:  Reading Challenge, Chess Club, Boys and Girls Running Clubs, Reflections Art program, GROW club (Stingray Gardens), science olympiad and the Spelling Bee.

Cultural Arts Programs
This year we will have Ronald McDonald, Einstein Alive by Marc Spiegal, Anansi to Zeus by Donna Washington, a workshop residency by Hobey Ford (5th grade) and Tony Peacock for writer in residency (4th grade.)

All-Pro Dads’ Breakfast
This once per semester event provides an opportunity for students and their father, grandfather, uncle or other father-figure to attend breakfast together.  They discuss topics relevant to school-age children and take part in fun bonding activities.  

Staff Appreciation Week Activities
We will have a parent provided lunch opportunity one week during the month of October.  In May, we will celebrate Staff Appreciation week with daily treats for teachers and staff.

Technology 
Last year, we provided $31000+ in funds towards the purchase of 40 iPads for classroom use and 30 laptops for discovery cove.
