Duties at a Glance:

Thank you for volunteering your time to lead your PTA/PTSA. You are in an incredible position to help kids and families succeed! We welcome you to the PTA family.

As a PTA leader, you will focus your community on the needs of your members and their children. Your leadership will motivate volunteers and persuade local decision makers. You and your team will communicate with teachers and administrators, collaborate with community partners and associations, raise funds and awareness, provide much-needed programs for students and families, encourage reading and the arts, and much, much more.
