• Every Child. One Voice.

    PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

    Thank you for visiting our page! For over 120 years the PTA (Parent Teacher Association) has worked as an advocate for children and schools at the local, state, and national levels. Harrison Park has had a local PTA unit since its construction in 1950. 


    PTA is a great way to make a difference in the lives of students and teachers while meeting new people and making new friends. Come be a part of making Harrison Park a vibrant, fun community!  


    Harrison Park’s PTA, a 501c3 non-profit,  values diversity and aligns its work with Oregon PTA’s Mission & Values (link). All parents and community members are welcome. We value and need your input and help.
