Top 10 Reasons to Join
#10 It’s good for your child.
Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their school make better grades and have fewer disciplinary problems at school. When parents get plugged in at school, their children do better.
#9 You’ll get connected to North Polk.
There’s no better way to know what’s going on in the school than to be on the school’s parent teacher group. At each West PTA meeting, we have scheduled teachers to update us on what is going on in their classroom. How great is that?!
#8 You’ll be part of a network.
Meetings and volunteer events are opportunities to meet other parents in the same situation as you. It’s a great way to meet families with children the same age as your own.
#7 You’ll get to know teachers and staff.
Better understand their needs and ideas.
#6 It’s for every parent.
#5 It’s fun!
You can help plan fun events, socials, and events that the whole family can attend.
#4 It’s flexible.
The NP West PTA is an easygoing group, ready to meet the changing needs of teachers and parents. There are a variety of small ways parents can help and be involved. If everyone does a little, no one has to do a lot.
#3 You’ll help raise necessary funds.
PTA fundraisers provide more educational services for children. Last year, the NP West PTA purchased $6,000 worth of books for the elementary library, sponsored field trips, held monthly family events, and much more.
#2 You’ll be a role model.
You are showing your children that not only are they important to you, but so is their education.
