What is the PTSA?

YOUR voice in YOUR school. The letters PTS stand for parents, teachers, and students because the PTSA is a partnership of parents, teachers, and students dedicated to strengthening the school community. The PTSA strives to better the lives of all of our children. We are part of an association that is organized at the local, state, and national levels.

The number one reason to join the PTSA is to benefit your student. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more PTSA advantages:

PTSA provides the opportunities and structure for all individuals to become an advocate for children and families in your own communities.

We are all volunteers committed to working on issues that affect children and families. Your voice is so important to us, and we need your help.
