The truth behind why millions of parents and students join their local PTA year after year is simple: children do better when their parents are involved both at home and at school. Grades and test scores climb. Self-esteem grows. Schools improve. There’s a simple way for you to help your child succeed: Join Franklin PTA!
When you and your family join PTA, you should know that you are part of something big -- larger than our school campus, our school district, or even our state, something that even transcends generations. You are part the great experiment of public education toward building a stronger social fabric and safety net, bound together and finely woven of diverse threads, each playing a critical role and contributing to an outcome more robust and enduring than the sum of its parts.
For more than 100 years, the Parent Teacher Association has worked toward bettering the lives of every child in education, health and safety. Founded in 1897 as the National Congress of Mothers, PTA is a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education.
Today’s PTA is a network of millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of family engagement in schools.
What?! For eight bucks a year?!
Come on and get a membership, and then if you like, find out how you can volunteer at an assembly, at a social, at an association meeting, as a room rep, as part of teacher and staff appreciation, as part of the Green Team, and more! Joining the PTA helps each of us embrace the present, shape the future, and wrap our families in the finely woven cloak of community.
