Our school had PTA 52 members in the 2017-18 school year with an average of 15 individuals attending our monthly PTA meetings, which include free dinner and childcare. (All PTA members are invited to attend meetings although attendance is not required.) There is always a business component to each meeting wherein the Treasurer provides an update on our income, spending, and overall financial position. We also discuss upcoming events, recap recent events, and frequently feature a guest speaker on a school or family related topic. Meeting agendas and minutes are available to the public and posted on this website.Aside from monthly in-person gatherings, PTA members stay involved and are updated about coming events and volunteer opportunities via email and our public Facebook page.Our PTA members are parents, grandparents, teachers, students and administrators who care about the school. We all believe that schools succeed when parents are involved. Please join us!What does the PTA do?
We plan fun things! We raise money! We work with administration, teachers, and parents to identify the needs of the school and fill the gaps where we can. This past school year, the PTA organized a back-to-school Ice Cream Social, Fall Catalog Fundraiser, Fall Harvest Festival, a Family Movie Night, Holiday Bazaar, a school dance, a family "Restaurant Night," Trivia Night, Teacher Appreciation Week, and more, including having had a presence at our neighbor Kenton Street Fair. We also maintain an on-site clothes closet for any student at school who may have a daytime accident of any kind that requires a change into clean clothes.
Where does our money go?
We give about half of our yearly budget to our teachers and staff to support their classroom needs in the form of "Teacher and Staff Grants." Every teacher and staff member is eligible to apply for a specific dollar amount which may be used for class projects, field trips, technology, specialty classroom furniture, supplies, academic subscriptions, books and more. Remaining funds are used to produce PTA-sponsored events at the school.
