  • This link is for UK Parent Teacher Groups which is now live http://www.onlinepta.co.uk/ We are developing a sister site for US groups called school Sparkle.
    What do groups get for their $59.99, the get comprehensive website, a members library, discount cornor listing companies offering discounts on fund rasing and last, but not least, a local business directory an effective way of generating income from promoting local enterprise.
    Parent Teacher Groups could get School Sparke for free if 10 large US businesses took out a slot in the Business Directory, they could have access to the largest volunteer and single consumer group in USA and Canada for about 50 cents per school parent teacher group; with each new intake in early years the potential customer base increases year and year. Interesting.

  • All ten reasons to join a PTA are valid, however there is one advantage that could be of value to the schools they support, they provide a direct link between the school, local and business communities.

10 Reasons to Join the PTA 10 Reasons to Join the PTA Presentation Transcript

  • 10 REASONS TO JOIN THE PTA Jay Moneta Hunter Thomson
  • Introduction The PTA is a recognized group of parents and teachers that work together for the benefit of their school. Taking an active role in your children’s school is critical to their success. We’ve compiled a list of 10 reasons why joining the PTA will greatly improve your child’s education experience.
  • 1 It’s good for your child. Research shows that children whose parents are involved in their school make better grades and have fewer disciplinary problems at school. When parents get plugged in at school, their children do better. 10 Reasons to Join the PTA © 2010 Believe Kids
  • 2 It’s important to the school. Schools are becoming more and more dependent on parent groups. The parent groups are responsible for almost all of the school’s fundraising revenue. They provide support to teachers and administrators, and they create a caring and supportive atmosphere in the school. 10 Reasons to Join the PTA © 2010 Believe Kids
  • 3 You’ll get connected. There’s no better way to know what’s going on in the school than to be on the school’s parent teacher group. Y ou’ll be first to hear about important decisions and changes the school is thinking about making, and you will get to know teachers and administrators on a familiar basis. 10 Reasons to Join the PTA © 2010 Believe Kids
  • 4 You’ll be part of a network. Every parent group function is an opportunity to meet other parents in the same situation as you. Y will be connected ou with a group of parents who share a common goal of improving the school for the children. 10 Reasons to Join the PTA © 2010 Believe Kids
  • 5 You’ll make a difference. By volunteering with the PTA, you’ll be able to use your skills for a noble cause. Parent groups work to establish a supportive and encouraging community for the entire school. The goal is to create the most educational environment possible for our children. 10 Reasons to Join the PTA © 2010 Believe Kids
  • 6 It’s fun! Y ou’ll connect with a group of people who are all concerned with creating a better environment for their children. Y will ou help plan fun events, socials and get togethers that the whole family can attend. 10 Reasons to Join the PTA © 2010 Believe Kids
  • 7 You’ll be a role model. You’ll show your children that not only are they important to you, but their education is as well. They’ll see you taking a stand to make education better for them and their peers, and chances are they’ll do the same. 10 Reasons to Join the PTA © 2010 Believe Kids
  • 8 You’ll help raise necessary funds. The PTA fundraises to provide more educational services for children. Fundraisers remain important to improving the quality of the school overall, and parent groups make them possible. 10 Reasons to Join the PTA © 2010 Believe Kids
  • 9 It’s flexible. The PTA has progressed to meet the changing needs of parents. There are a variety of small ways parents can help and be involved in the PTA. Project responsibilities are flexible and can be adjusted to fit with your time constraints. 10 Reasons to Join the PTA © 2010 Believe Kids
  • 10 It’s for every parent. Your voice and opinion matters! It makes a difference when you speak up. Y our voice and ideas can help improve the quality of education for your children and their peers. You’ll see the smiles on their faces and know that you’ve played a part in making school a little more comfortable and fun. 10 Reasons to Join the PTA © 2010 Believe Kids
  • Conclusion Being an involved parent can be as simple as helping your child with homework or even reading together. The more time you take out of your day to become more involved in your child’s education, the better. Y don’t have to make the PTA a full time job to make a ou difference. However, volunteering occasionally and attending school events really matters. Showing your children you value education will teach them to value it as well. The national PTA website is at www.pta.org
