ABOUT PARK GLEN PTA

WELCOME FROM OUR PTA PRESIDENT

As your newly elected PTA President serving Park Glen Elementary, I wanted to take a moment and reach out to our Park Glen Elementary Community. It is an honor to be able to serve you, the students, and the school!

I, along with our PTA Executive Board, are uncertain of what our school year will look like and how we will be able to support the needs of our students. What we do know is that the need for support is still present - more than ever, our students need PTA advocates in their corner.

When joining Park Glen Elementary PTA, you are joining an organization whose mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. How we accomplish this is by joining together with you as advocates for laws that further the education, physical and mental health, welfare, and safety of our children. Each day at the local, state, and national level PTA members are advocating for all children. When you join Park Glen PTA you join that collective voice. Our goal this year is provide opportunities for all families to be included and engaged in PTA.

As you weigh your decisions about the return of school, know that Park Glen PTA will be here to support you through the year. Regardless of the learning option that works best for your family - whether in person or remote - you are part of our community and we will be there every step of the way to support our students and families

I hope that you will join us as we all navigate the new normal together! Thank you for the opportunity to serve you this year!

WHY JOIN PTA?

 ​​Joining the PTA is so easy and rewarding.  Memberships cost $7 and there are NO minimum time commitments. Whether you want to organize an event, join a committee, or simply help out as you have time -  involvement level is completely up to you. 

We have PTA General Membership meetings one evening a month. These meetings are held in conjunction with a PTA sponsored family engagement program or grade-level program. Meetings are an opportunity to stay in the know regarding current PTA endeavors and the programs allow you to spend time with your family and connect with the PGE community

We will have membership sign-up available at most school events so you can learn more about how to join and how you can help make Park Glen Elementary the best it can be.

Get Involved

You are your child's most important role model and by joining the PTA, you are showing them that you value their education and will teach them to value it as well.  As a PTA member, you become an advocate for our school and assist  in contributing to a positive learning environment.

Build Relationships

The PTA is comprised of parents, guardians, teachers, administrators, and students.  By joining the PTA, you build relationships with other parents, teachers, and PGE community members through volunteer opportunities and various PTA sponsored events.

Advocacy

PTAs advocate for public education at the local, state, and national levels. In addition to promoting initiatives that directly affect our school, we also participate in state lobby days to promote student focused legislation and policies.

2020 - 2021 PTA Board

The Park Glen PTA board is comprised of elected volunteers who want to use their personal and professional expertise to help further the PTA through the various responsibilities that the position requires. If you want to volunteer or help out with any of these positions, we would love for you to join a committee!
