What is PTA? Why join PTA?
Your membership money is split between the Uintah, state and national Parent Teacher Associations. The money goes towards advocacy for students and education, as well as support and training for local PTA leadership. The backing of the National PTA is what lets us be tax exempt, connects us to new ideas for the school, and lets us do all the things we do at Uintah, from Fundraising to Fish Tank and everything in between. Here's some more good reasons to join up:
Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
Discover Great Resources. The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
Tap into a Network. PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences.
Watch Yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause—your child and all children in the community.
Speak Up. PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
Witness Improvement. By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. Local PTAs play an important role by supporting building improvements through advocacy and play an important role in fundraising for curriculum-based programs and social events.
Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
