Mission Statement

PTA_2003_BVoice

If you picture the PTA as just a small crew of parents who meet now and then to plan bake sales, you may be in for a big surprise. The Parent Teacher Association, or PTA, is a huge and very influential nationwide organization with state and local affiliates throughout the country. The national PTA is headquartered in Chicago and promotes parent involvement in school communities. It is also a powerful lobbying organization in state legislatures and in Washington, D.C..

 

National PTA Mission Statement:

The overall purpose of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
