    What does the PTA do?

    The PTA is a membership organization. We encourage all parents and teachers to join. We sponsor fundraising events such as Boosterthon and Fall Festival. We host teacher appreciation luncheons and provide funding for teachers for professional development. The PTA has funded building benches and gardens at our school. We fund the end of the year reading celebration and the Mile Maker and Field day.  We coordinate vision and hearing screenings for students and hold parent and volunteer social events. We work side by side with FAME to provide additional funding for programs at our school.
