Why Join PTA?
At school — Family-school partnerships equal academic improvement. It’s a powerful strategy for achieving whole-school goals, such as reading at grade level, closing achievement gaps and motivating students for long-term success. Teachers and administrators can strengthen efforts by involving families in two-way, regular and meaningful conversations about students, giving parents good information about supporting our children and how grade-level expectations affect kids’ academic progress.
- At home — Families and caregivers become partners in success by creating a culture of authentic engagement in school life. Keeping kids focused on school readiness, learning and homework shows commitment to our children’s academic growth and development.
- Together! — Sharing ideas. Setting goals. Initiating activities. Monitoring efforts. These investments of time and effort pay huge dividends when we all work together for our children’s success.(From CAPTA.org website)
