• Ida B Wells High School PTA

    The PTA strives to keep parents informed, advocates for the entire parent community, and provides you a way to make a difference in your child’s school and educational experience. We all want our children to have a high school experience that prepares them for their next adventure in a safe environment where they can learn and grow. Parent participation is a very important piece of this equation.

    PTA is one of three major parent organizations at Ida B. Wells.  The other two are Boosters and Foundation.  Over the course of this year, all three organizations will be working collaboratively.  We will also be evaluating the range of activities that PTA has supported in the past, and could support in the future, with the objective of providing maximum benefit for students, parents, teachers, and the community.  We want your input in this process!

    Here are a few things PTA fundraising supports: classroom support, staff recognition, scholarships, Portland Council PTA Clothing Closet, Portland Council Student Aid Fund, and more.

    Below are some ways you can get involved today:

    • Dues are $30.00 individual, $50 couple, and include an electronic copy of the Ida B. Wells Student Directory.
    • There are many ways to pitch in, and volunteering is great way to get to know staff and other parents.
    • Above and beyond your membership dues, PTA needs your financial contributions to provide support for programs school-wide. Donations are tax-deductible. Your employer may provide matching funds for time or money you contribute—be sure to ask!
    • PTA has three or four meetings a year. Meeting dates will be posted on the school calendar and reminders will be included in the weekly informational emails. In addition to our PTA meetings we offer Parent Education Nights throughout the school year on topics relating to the high school experience. 

    We look forward to meeting and working with you this coming year!
