MESSAGE FROM THE NEW OC PTA PRESIDENT: JOCELYN PALAGANAS
I believe strongly in working very closely as a family, as a school,
and as a community. We can make a difference in our children's lives
by involving ourselves in their everyday education and activities.
Research has shown that parent/teacher involvement in children's lives:
- earn better grades
- score higher on tests
- have better social skills
- show improved behavior
- show more positive attitude toward school/family
- graduate and continue their education on a higher level.
Please be a part of my campaign in "Together Making a Difference".
This will not be a success without your help, love, dedication,
and support in making it become an accomplishment to be proud of. I welcome
and appreciate any ideas regarding your children's
current and future endeavors. My Executive Board and I are
committed to make a difference in your children's lives. Hopefully, I will
meet some of you or all of you in the coming months.
Once again thank you for your love and support,
A powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families, teachers, and the community, and a strong
advocate for the education and well-being of every child.
Collaboration: We work in partnership with a large array of organizations to accomplish our goals.
Commitment: We are dedicated to promoting children's health, well-being, and educational success through parent,
family, teachers, and community involvement.
Accountability: We acknowledge our obligations. We deliver on our promises.
Respect: We value our colleagues and ourselves. We expect the same high quality of effort and thought from ourselves as we do from others.
Inclusivity: We value and seek input from a wide spectrum of viewpoints and experiences as possible.
Integrity: We act consistently with our beliefs. When we make an error, we acknowledge the mistake and seek to make adjustments.
We serve, in conjunction with the National & State PTA, as a forum in which parents and teachers can discuss ways "...to promote quality education, strive to expand the arts, encourage community involvement,
and work for a healthy environment."
We promote the welfare of children and our community in the hopes of raising the standards of home life.
We strive to bring into closer relation the home and the schools, so that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of our children and youth.
We derive our strength from members who represent a diversity of cultures, a variety of religious and political beliefs, and many ethnic backgrounds.
We support and sponsor, in collaboration with the Ocean City School Faculty and the general public, curriculum-based programs, cultural arts performances and many family social events.
Our goal is to encourage parent involvement, increase PTA membership through families and teachers, and improve community awareness
of the wonderful programs and successes taking place in our schools.
