Now is your chance to join:

We are aiming for 100% membership. Everyone is an essential part of the Mark Keppel community. Joining is easy and only costs $10! You can join online at

This Thursday your child will also be bringing home a PTA membership envelope that you can complete and turn it into their teacher or the front office.

Membership is not limited to parents. Students, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors, friends, and community members are all welcome and encouraged to join!

***PTA Membership DOES NOT mandate any time commitment to the Keppel PTA, however you are always welcome to attend PTA meetings to provide your valuable input or stay informed

Tuesday, September 7th is the beginning of our PTA's first ever Sneaker Drive! Families can gather up any sneakers that are gently worn, used, or new and bring them to our collection boxes in the school lobby or next to the Virginia gate.

The sneakers that we collect will help raise money to support the Keppel community AND will help our environment by keeping sneakers out of landfills.  So, take a look in your closets and ask your friends, neighbors, and social media circles to see how many pairs of shoes you can find.

Please note: we will happily accept shoes in kid or adult sizes, but we CANNOT accept dress shoes, or shoes with holes in them. If you have any questions, email them to:
