What is PTA?


The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is an organization that brings parents and teachers together so they can work towards improving the lives and education of students. Over 6.5 million people belong to PTAs nationwide, making it the largest child advocacy volunteer association. Simply, a PTA is a group of adults, both men and women, affiliated with a school that have organized to work to help children thrive and learn — whether that means fundraising for school supplies, educating parents, or helping teachers, to ensure every child gets a highquality education. 

Many parents are hesitant to join Wolf Creek PTA because they fear it will cut into their already over scheduled lives and stretched budgets. But not to worry! First of all, dues to join Wolf Creek PTA are $7 a year. Meetings are once a month— and you're encouraged but not required to attend. As for additional volunteering requirements, you will probably be asked to help with fundraising efforts, but your involvement is ultimately up to you. It's important to keep in mind that a meaningful contribution to a PTA project does not have to be time consuming. You can sign up to join a committee, or just volunteer one day/evening to help out at a fundraiser. Even if you don't have time to volunteer, you can help out with supplies or donate your time in other ways — there are many ways to help!

Together, we are a powerful voice for children. With your help, we can continue to work toward PTA's goal of a quality education and nurturing environment for every child.
