ABOUT PARK GLEN PTA

WELCOME FROM OUR PTA PRESIDENT

Welcome Cheetahs and Cheetah Families! Park Glen PTA is excited to partner with Park Glen Elementary (PGE) and all of our amazing families and community supporters for another wonderful year. 

We encourage you all to join PTA as we help our students become cheetah strong.

Park Glen PTA has a mission to help every child reach their full potential. We do this by providing programs that encourage students in many areas. We offer academic enrichment programs, leadership programs, family engagement opportunities, and so much more. We also support our teachers and staff at PGE. We strive to connect our cheetah community because we believe in the Park Glen Elementary Family.

Please take a minute to browse through our website to see details on the exciting year ahead and like our Facebook and Twitter accounts to stay up to date on all of the happenings. We can’t wait to share the year with you and look forward to getting to know you and your precious cheetahs!

WHY JOIN PTA?

 ​​Joining the PTA is so easy and rewarding.  Memberships cost $7 and there are NO minimum time commitments. Whether you want to organize an event, join a committee, or simply help out as you have time -  involvement level is completely up to you. 

We have PTA General Membership meetings one evening a month. These meetings are held in conjunction with a PTA sponsored family engagement program or grade-level program. Meetings are an opportunity to stay in the know regarding current PTA endeavors and the programs allow you to spend time with your family and connect with the PGE community

We will have membership sign-up available at most school events so you can learn more about how to join and how you can help make Park Glen Elementary the best it can be.

Get Involved

You are your child's most important role model and by joining the PTA, you are showing them that you value their education and will teach them to value it as well.  As a PTA member, you become an advocate for our school and assist  in contributing to a positive learning environment.

Build Relationships

The PTA is comprised of parents, guardians, teachers, administrators, and students.  By joining the PTA, you build relationships with other parents, teachers, and PGE community members through volunteer opportunities and various PTA sponsored events.

Advocacy

PTAs advocate for public education at the local, state, and national levels. In addition to promoting initiatives that directly affect our school, we also participate in state lobby days to promote student focused legislation and policies.

2019 - 2020 PTA Board

The Park Glen PTA board is comprised of elected volunteers who want to use their personal and professional expertise to help further the PTA through the various responsibilities that the position requires. If you want to volunteer or help out with any of these positions, we would love for you to join a committee!
