The PTA at our school works to promote the welfare of our children in the home, school, and the community. It is a combined effort of all parents, teachers, and administrators. Membership is open to all parents, staff, and any adults who are interested in the objectives and activities of the PTA Association.The PTA has two major fundraisers, one in the fall and one in the winter. In addition, they sponsor two Scholastic Book Fairs, a Holiday Shoppe, a Mother/Son night, a Father/Daughter dance, Cultural Arts programs, Spring 5K Color Run and help support our students and staff through many other various things throughout the year. A PTA information board is in the front hallway of the school that will list current events and other important information for our parents. The PTA also utilizes a Facebook page under "Matapeake Elementary School PTA" to update our parents about upcoming events or volunteer needs.
It is through the generous support of our parent volunteers that our PTA is able to accomplish all they do. All volunteer help is greatly appreciated throughout the year. PTA meetings are monthly and all are welcome to attend.
