PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association)

What does the PTSA do?

The PTSA helps organize many school events such as Stinger Night, movies, cultural arts assemblies, and dances. We also support teachers by providing classroom libraries and computer programs for daily use by students.

Who can be a PTSA member?

Everyone can be a member! Parents, grandparents, family members, students, teachers, and school staff are all welcome to join the PTSA.

I am not able to volunteer, so why should I join?

Your $20 membership helps support various programs, presentations and awards. You are showing your children that you are involved in their education.
