MEMBERSHIP IS FOR EVERYONE AND IT'S YEAR LONG
PTA is a membership driven association! People join PTA to show support of the work you do locally and the work we do collectively to help children, families and schools. We rely on our members to contribute their time and skills.
Every individual who joins PTA helps not only his or her own child, but every child. Imagine how strong your community could be if every parent, every teacher, staff and administrator of your school, and every community member and every business leader, got involved in PTA!
WHY JOIN PTA?
PTA is a grassroots association working exclusively to improve the education and well-being of all children and youth at home, school and in the community. PTA membership is as diverse as Broward County Council PTA/PTSA is in culture, education level, and parenting style. By joining a PTA, a member automatically becomes part of the largest child-advocacy association.
The number-one reason to join the PTA is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school, but there are many more advantages.
HERE ARE JUST A FEW REASONS.
Get connected. There's no better way to know what's happening in your school.
Discover great resources. The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
Tap into a network. PTA functions provide opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, build rapport, and discuss parenting issues that are on your mind.
Watch yourself grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences and personal confidence. It's an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to use for a good cause.
Speak up. Because PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions and more effectively suggest a change at your child's school.
Help your child succeed. PTA fosters parent involvement. Parent involvement has been proven by three decades of research to be the greatest predictor of student success.
Witness Improvement. By getting involved at your child's school, you'll be part of the solution, helping to make positive changes. Local PTAs play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs, and social events - all vital to a school's success.
Be a role model. By becoming a PTA member, you'll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
