What is PTSA?  (Parent, Teacher, Student Association)

A PTSA is a partnership between parents, students and educators who strive 
to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of the students within the 
school. It is also a forum for parents to obtain knowledge and voice their 
opinions about what is happening in their school.

A common misconception about the PTSA is that all they do is organize 
fundraisers and school events. Fundraising is an important and integral part 
of the PTSA. The funds raised by PTA help support many needed programs 
within the school. But, you don’t have to like or be good at fundraising to 
participate in the PTSA. By being a member of and attending PTSA meetings 
you provide a voice as to how the funds that are raised should be spent 
within our school.

Other benefits of being an active PTSA member include:
 
1. Keeping up to date on what is going on within the school and the district 
as a whole. PTSA members attend district meetings and participate in the 
school’s site council. These members share what they learn at the monthly 
PTSA meetings.

2. Meeting other parents. Often, a question or concern you have about your 
child’s education can be answered or shared by other parents. Other parents 
may have already faced an issue you are confronted with and can offer 
support and advice. By attending general PTSA meetings you have a forum 
where your questions may be answered or you concerns can be addressed.

3. Promoting family values. PTSA meetings may include speakers on various 
topics of concern or interest to today’s family. The PTSA plans events that 
bring families together throughout the school year. You can share you ideas 
and contribute in the decision making process.

4. Being an advocate for your child. Studies show that children who have 
parents that are involved in their education do better in school, are less 
likely to get in trouble and are more likely to go on to secondary education.
