Myth #1: “Only moms and teachers need to join PTA.”
A strong, PTA needs the support of parents, grandparents, family members, teachers, school staff, and community members. Anyone who cares about children belongs in PTA!
Myth #2: “Joining PTA means I have to volunteer.”
You do not have to volunteer to be a member of PTA! The PTA appreciates everyone’s membership, whether or not a member volunteers, because each member increases PTA’s ability to advocate for children.
Myth #3: "I'll get roped into volunteering if I come to a meeting!"
We love a full house for meetings, and would love to see you, and hear your ideas and opinions! Attending meetings is a great way to keep up to date on PTA news and goings on within the school, but they are completely optional and there is never any obligation to do anything more! We are a super laid back group; no cliques, no pressure, no judgement!
Myth #4: “I don’t have the time to join PTA.”
Your time committment in the PTA is completely up to you! If you are not able to support the PTA with time, please still become a member and give your financial support knowing that your support helps as we develop programs and activities that benefit not only your children, but all children.
The PTA is the oldest and largest child advocacy association in America; it's mission is to make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for children.
