ABOUT PARK GLEN PTA
WELCOME FROM OUR PTA PRESIDENT
My name is Lindsey Carlegis, and I am honored to serve as your PTA president for the 2022-2023 school year. I have been a proud cheetah parent for the last seven years. On behalf of the PTA membership, welcome to Park Glen Elementary! Whether you are supporting a first-time student or one who has seen many children pass through the halls, rest assured they are in a wonderful place full of supportive teachers, administrators, and staff.
Through collaboration, commitment, diversity, respect, and accountability, the mission of the Texas PTA and all of its local associations is to “To make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.”
Our PTA organizes special programs and events, provides Academic Enrichment programs, such as Cheetah Math and Reading Olympics, encourages the creativity of our students through the annual Reflections program and Park Glen Press, and supports our teachers, administrators, and staff with different hospitality events throughout the year.
Membership in PTA is open to anyone who supports the PTA mission and wants to be involved in making a difference in the education, health, and welfare of children. Along with Texas PTA, our goal is to have one voice for every child on our campus. We thrive on the participation of the school community! There are many ways to get involved, from simply purchasing a membership to joining a committee, volunteering your time and resources, or attending the membership meetings held throughout the year, there is a place for you here! If you care about our community’s schools and students, #YouCanPTA!
I look forward to a fantastic year and welcome your questions and input!

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.
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.
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.
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.
