Parent Teacher Student Association

PTA Vision:

  •  "Making Every Child’s Potential A Reality"

    The PTA was established in 1897, over 100 years ago. The PTA represents a force in the nation that speaks for all children- a unified voice on major issues, a unified push for improved legislation, an opportunity to act as a forum for ideas, and a chance to meet with others and discuss mutual concerns.
