Still on the fence on joining the PTA? There are many great reasons – here are some!
As a parent, the number one reason to join your child’s PTA is to help your child. In doing so you also help the school and your community. PTA membership offers great advantages such as staying connected to the school, access to great resources for parents and students, networking/ volunteer opportunities and effective ways to suggest change for your child’s school.
We are happy to report that over the last two weeks of September alone we added 51 members comprising of both parents and teachers to the RPMS PTA community. That is great news and thank you for joining!!! … yet it is only part of the story.
Did you know that our PTA membership numbers also tell us that there is an opportunity for you to remain involved in your child’s PTA? Compared to the number of enrolled students at Rosa Parks Middle School, we are happy to see a 36% involvement from 6th grade parents, 21% involvement from 7th grade and about 16% involvement from 8th grade parents. That could be because most parents do not know that you must re-join your child’s PTA every year!! We understand – September is a busy time for parents and teachers, and it is so easy to forget to renew your membership. That is why we are kicking off a membership drive to reach out to you in October through mid-November and invite you to join or re-join and continue to advocate for your child and support the RPMS community.
Let’s make a difference in our children’s and student’s education! Whether you are a parent or a teacher of Rosa Parks Middle School, demonstrate to your child and student the importance you place on their education by being a great role model. Join us today and don’t forget to share this story and spread the word with your friends, family and co-workers.
Your friends at RPMS PTA
