Other Reasons to Join Portola Springs PTA

Joining the PTA is an important way to support our school and the efforts of the State and National PTA. Getting involved at the local level of your community is the most impactful way to make an immediate and significant impact!

Your membership with Portola Springs PTA will strengthen our ability to provide the best learning environment for our children. This is especially important as we work to build our new PTA and during these times of budgetary uncertainty. Help us by joining forces!!! Among all, the number-one reason to join the PTA is to benefit your child.  In doing so, you also help your school.  But there are many more advantages. Here are just a few:

Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
Discover Great Resources. The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
 
Tap into a Network. PTA functions provide opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, build rapport and discuss parenting issues that are on your mind.
 
Watch yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences and personal confidence. It’s an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause.
 
Speak Up. Because PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions and more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
 
Help Your Child Succeed. PTA fosters parent involvement. Parent involvement has been proven by three decades of research to be the greatest predictor of student success.
 
Witness Improvement. By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping to make positive changes. Local PTAs play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs, social events – all vital to a school’s success.
 
Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.

Membership Perks.  PTA members can take advantage of local discounts at amusement parks and aquariums which you receive once you become PTA member.
