PTSA Membership: Why Join Now?

A Message from our PTSA Membership Chair:

Thank you so much for your terrific response to our Early Registration Membership drive!  The Fall Eaglewear order containing our gift t-shirts has been submitted and will be coming to classrooms in late October.  If you submitted your membership fee by 9/21 but did not submit a youth T-shirt size you will have another opportunity when we order Eaglewear again in Winter.

After the back to school period ends, PTSA membership registrations usually slow down.  However, we still welcome new or renewed members at any time of the year.  By joining the PTSA you show that you support our goal to build a strong school community through educational programs and family involvement events.  Every membership we get adds weight to our efforts.  Our student count is 462.  Can we achieve 462 members, one adult to stand for each child?  Your membership matters.
