10 Reasons to join PTF


#1 Your Child Benefits

When parents get connected to the school, children do better. Research shows children whose parens are involved get better grades, do better on tests, and have fewer discipline problems at school.

Core Values

#2 We Make a Difference

Our mission is to create the kind of school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work- and so can our children. We provide support for teachers in and out of the classroom. We provide resources they need. We help create learning opportunities for children. And we try to build the kind of supportive, caring atmosphere that makes school fun.

Core Values

#3 We Pledge to Honor your time Constraints

People are often reluctant to participate because they're afraid they'll get pulled into a black hole of never-ending time commitment. That won't happen here. An hour or two a semester really makes a difference. And we won't push you to commit more than you want to or are able to.

Core Values

#4 We Have Fun

Volunteer work shouldn't be drudgery. We accomplish a lot, and not everything we do is easy. But we know we are not balancing the national debt, either. We don't take ourselves too seriously, and we try to enjoy ourselves along the way whenever possible.

Core Values

#5 Meet Nice People Who Share Your Concerns

We all have a common bond. We care about creating the best possible educational experience for our children. We are neighbors and peers who share many of the same experiences. And many friendships have developed as a result of those connections.

Core Values

#6 There's A Lot To Be Done

These days, schools are asked to do more with less. Our help is needed more than ever to fill the gaps.

Core Values

#7 We Can Match Jobs to Your Interest and Abilities

The work we do covers a broad spectrum: filing and photocopying, planning and executing events, writing and editing, working directly with children, managing a budget and cash flow, and lots more. We encourage creative ideas, and we are thrilled to have people take on tasks that meet their skills and interests.

Core Values

#8 We Are Welcoming

To us, there are no "outsiders". We are people who have come together to work toward common goals. We couldn't be happier to have ou join us in working toward those goals.

Core Values

#9 We Are About Parent Involvement, Not Fundraising

In these times of tight budgets, parent groups everywhere are having to fill in the gaps, and so are we. But our number one goal is to get more parents connected to the school. That's because more than 300 independent research studies show that building parent involvement in education is the number one thing we can do to create a great school and improve student performance.

Core Values

#10 This Work is Very Rewarding

It's seeing the bright light of learning sparkle in a child's eye. It's seeing the smile that shows we are making school a little more fun - and a child feel a little more comfortable in a learning environment. It's learning that test scores have risen and knowing we played a role. There are lots of rewards, both big and small, for those who get involved. Won't you join us?
