Who is PTSA and what does PTSA fund at Leawood Elementary?

PTSA is You…

The PTSA (Parent-Teacher-Student Association) is a private, non-profit organization of parents, teachers, students and community members who strive to better the lives of children. We are part of an association that is organized at the local, state and national levels. By joining our local PTSA, you are automatically a member of the state and national associations, which is the largest child advocacy volunteer organization that speaks for the interest of all children, their safety, health, welfare and education. PTSA is you … communicating, parenting, learning, volunteering, decision making and collaborating!

Be an informed Parent! Visit the sites below for more information and resources!

What is the cost to become a PTSA Member?

Annual dues are $8 for a single membership and $14.50 for a couple membership. If you are interested in joining PTSA you can include your payment (check or cash) to the main office, in an envelope labeled PTSA membership, along with your name and contact information. Checks must be made out to Leawood PTSA.  There is a form available and an online option on the membership tab.

What do I get with my membership and when are the PTSA meetings?

Your membership ensures your meaningful involvement and vote in PTSA related activities. We encourage your attendance at our general meetings and hope that you volunteer on a committee or event that speaks to you!  Meetings are the 3rd Wednesday of the Month.

"Research shows that parent involvement in schools has multiple positive impacts: student success increases, along with teacher morale and overall school quality. It's like the secret ingredient in the recipe for educational success!"
