About the SKES PTA

The Strawberry Knoll PTA is a nonprofit, volunteer organization established to benefit students at Strawberry Knoll Elementary School.

The PTA's goal is to bring the staff and parents together to enhance our children’s school experience. We work to achieve this goal in the following ways:

  • Volunteering our time for school events and projects
  • Hosting fun family events
  • Fostering communication between parents, staff, and MCCPTA
  • Fundraising and/or advocating to help meet unfunded school needs

We need lots of SKES families to make this happen. It's our school. Get involved and join the PTA today.
