Within the PTA, we like to share different perspectives, ideas and experiences.
As PTA members, we want what’s best for our children and their school experience - that’s our common ground.
Within the PTA, we enrich our organization and the work we do through our differences and the diversity of ideas.
As PTA members, we all have something unique to bring to the organization - well, that’s the power of our association and the power of the PTA difference.
Power of PTA
Research shows that schools with well-structured, consistent parent involvement programs - like PTA - are more likely to experience profound benefits for parents, students, teachers and overall school quality.
It’s a known fact that when parents are involved, their children do better in school.
Who Makes up PTA?
The Mt. Pleasant Elementary PTA is made up of people just like you – caring and energetic parents.
We gain strength and have support from dedicated teachers and school administrators as well as generous contributors and sponsors.
The PTA is a great way to get involved with other like-minded adults and influence what’s going on in the schools.
PTA Keeps You Informed
The PTA connects you with what’s happening at school and with like-minded people too. You’ll get to meet and work with the parents of your children’s classmates and friends, with other parents you wouldn't otherwise meet, with teachers and with school personnel.
The PTA helps open doors to information about school decisions that can affect your child’s school experience such as what programs will get funded or what cuts are possibly going to be made in the schools.
PTA Gives You A Voice
The PTA is not only an information source but it is also a way you cam influence what’s going on here in our schools.
The PTA members have a vote and can decide what PTA events and projects we’ll fund here at our schools.
When school board or district level decisions are being made, the PTA is there as the parent voice to speak up and take action on important school and community issues.
When you join the PTA, you also became a member of our state PTA and national PTA where your voice is magnified as it combines with the voices of6 million other parents and teachers who also care about children.
Our PTA’s Top Accomplishments
The PTA’s first priority is to help more parents get involved in our school because it benefits the whole school.
The PTA also works to help the teachers, school personnel and the students themselves by funding and conducting special Events and projects throughout the year.
