Texas PTA NE Council PTA Canyon Ridge PTA
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 who benefits the most is your own. You also are taking a major step toward improving your child's school, your community, and your state and national education and health policies.
PTA is the largest parent involvement organization in the United States, with nearly 6 million members. PTA was created to better the lives of children, and it continues to flourish because we never lose sight of that goal.
PTAs get 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.
PTA 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 improve children's well-being. PTAs focus on what students need to be successful in their learning, including proper nutrition and safe, healthy environments.
PTAs benefits everyone. Strong schools mean stronger communities. PTA membership is open to anyone concerned with the education, health, and welfare of children.
