What is PTA?
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a partnership between parents and educators
who strive to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of the students within the
school. It is also a forum for parents to obtain knowledge and voice their opinions
about what is happening in their school.

The Role Of PTA
The role of the PTA is to build strong relationships among parents, teachers, and the
school community. This can include recruiting and coordinating volunteers, providing
special recognition in awards ceremonies or through other activities,
organizing parent education events, planning teacher appreciation activities and much

Thank you for taking an active part and supporting Memorial Middle School PTA.

What Is My Responsibility As A Parent If I Join PTA?
In a world where everyone's time is precious getting people to join a PTA can be
difficult. As a parent, you decide to what level of participation you want to have….
Whether you are volunteering some of your time at a school sponsored PTA event or
perhaps you want to be a member of PTA without any obligation to volunteer at
school events. Although PTA would welcome any parents that have the availability to
volunteer, PTA recognizes that not all parents have time to do so.
PTA will never pressure you to volunteer.
