ABOUT PARK GLEN PTA


WELCOME FROM OUR PTA PRESIDENT

As your PTA President serving Park Glen Elementary, let me be one of the first to Welcome You to Park Glen. All of our PTA Executive Board are excited about the upcoming school year and that we are able to meet our PGE Community of families, businesses, staff, and students.

The biggest role that PTA plays is to support our school in a variety of ways. However, the most important role we have is to advocate for our children. We encourage you all to take a few minutes and learn more about PTA.

There will be a number of chances to join PTA and that is a great first step in learning more about PTA at Park Glen. PTA's Mission is to have a Voice for Every Child. In doing that we want to have programs and events that include all our families and are engaging you to participate.

It is my honor to be able to serve you, the students, the staff, and the school. I look forward to meeting many of you throughout the school year.

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.

2021 - 2022 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!
