The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is a national organization that works to promote the welfare of children and youth in home, school, and in our community. Our PTA organization is run 100% by volunteers working to build a sense of community to make a positive difference for all children and families. The PTA doesn't work without you! 🐾
Welcome to Palmetto Elementary School! We are happy to have you as a part of the #PESpride. As we work toward creating the future of PES we invite you to join us in making it a great one! Become a member of our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) today because together we are #PAWsitivelyunstoppable!
Your PTA Membership dollars help provide academic resources and enhancements for programs like Accelerated Readers and our Science Enhancement Curriculum. In recent years, our impact has also been seen in very tangible ways, ranging from water filters, new technology, new basketball and PE courts, a complete overhaul and upgrade to our Media Center and ran a successful fundraiser to bring air purifiers and filters to our classrooms. Together with the district, our PTA also installed a new walking track in our PE field. Last year, our PTA began funding updated outdoor spaces for our students to learn, recharge and engage with each other in new ways. These spaces are being filled with new trees, foliage, tables and benches with the intention of providing a safe, natural environment for our teachers and students. We also launched and will continue to fund the Teachers Pay Teachers Program to provide school access to online and digital enriching resources for teachers to use with our students. We continue to work on increasing school pride by bringing new spirit wear and spirit items to our school store. Our PTA does amazing things! Our success is only possible because of how the community comes together and because of its continued support.
Your PTA membership also includes you in our country’s largest volunteer child advocacy association, National PTA, which reminds our nation of its obligations to children and provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child, while providing parents tools to help their children be successful students.
Don’t miss your chance to become a supporting member of this wonderful organization! Anyone can be a member – parents, grandparents, community members and alumni. Membership is not tied to any volunteer commitments, but rather a way to show your support for the programs and events the PTA provides.
