Emmet D. Williams (EDW) Parent Teacher Association is a volunteer organization in Roseville, Minnesota. Our community members work together to support our students in the best way possible. We promote a strong and supportive school community.

What does the Emmet D. Williams PTA do?

The main role of the PTA is to build strong working relationships among parents, teachers and the school, in support of students. This includes recruiting and coordinating volunteers, organizing parent education events, planning teacher appreciation activities and more. The PTA is also responsible for community building and fundraising events throughout the year to assist our staff and community in offering our children more opportunities.
