A message from the PTA

Do you have an opinion about funding for Texas schools? Your voice is key to our efforts to pass laws that protect and enhance the lives of the children of Texas, offering educational opportunity to all. 

Legislators are more likely to consider your opinions as a constituent than almost any other. 

Get in touch with your representative and let them know how you feel about funding for public schools. 

To find your Texas State Representative and your Texas State Senator visit

The most important thing to remember is that your voice is important. You CAN and you DO make a difference when you decide to use your voice.  Stay involved!
