Gates PTA Membership drive runs August 28th - September 14th but you can join at anytime.
Join Gates PTA
Everyone – parents, educator, students and other citizens active in their schools and communities - are invited to join our not-for-profit organization.
Gates PTA is committed to making this school year the most memorable year ever! With your help, we can make it happen.
PTA Membership is open to ALL staff, faculty, parents’ grandparents, uncles, aunts, spouses, friends’ neighbors and even students. By joining Gates PTA you will enable us to continue with several events and programs for our students as well as help us launch a few new ones.
WHY JOIN PTA?
The number-one reason to join Gates PTA is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school with the administrative funds to run the PTA. But there are many more advantages. Here are just a few:
Get Connected. Get up to date information regarding volunteering and becoming involved by receiving PTA emails.
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.
WHY DO WE HAVE A PTA?
We are fortunate at our school to have a PTA that is and has been an integral part of the school community for many years. In its time the PTA has raised thousands of dollars, which has spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s experience and the school’s facilities.
All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available.
Not all of our events are run as fundraisers. The PTA tries to help the school fund events with the aim of giving the children a good time and as a way of thanking families for their continued support for the PTA.
This year’s PTA Membership Drive runs from August 28th – September 24th. Of course you can join anytime during the year but by joining during the drive we can take advantage of additional membership benefits only available during the PTA drive.
