PTA builds bridges between homes and schools, integrating the efforts of parents with those of principals and teachers. When you get involved in PTA, the child that benefits the most is your own; you are taking a major step toward improving your child’s school and your community, but also your state and national education and health policies. Plus, you are setting an example for your child of the importance of community involvement.
- PTA gets results. More than 85 rigorous research studies conducted over 30 years show that kids do better when parents are involved. Grades are higher. Test scores improve. Attendance increases.
- PTAs keep parents informed. Involved parents can understand the challenges schools face and become part of the solution. PTAs support education through active participation and advocacy.
- PTAs benefit everyone. Strong schools mean stronger communities. PTA membership is open to anyone concerned with the education, health and welfare of children.
Jefferson Elementary would not be the same without its amazing volunteers! PTA provides many opportunities to volunteer and we need your help, regardless of the amount of time you can devote!
PTA Membership costs only $5 per year (this money supports local, state and national offices and activities – all of which support member goals). Our goal at Jefferson is to have 100% membership - both parents and teachers. Children succeed when families, schools and communities work together, and PTA helps develop those relationships through resources, programs and advocacy.
PTA is much larger than just our local PTA at Jefferson. The Arkansas PTA and the National PTA work to ensure quality education and a nurturing environment for every child. National & State PTA work to influence the decisions of legislators and other organizational leaders, as well as working to ensure proper funding, leadership and instruction for all schools and school districts.
