WCCS Parent Teacher Association
Helping to make every child’s potential a reality
by engaging and empowering families and communities
to advocate for all children.
The #1 reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child.
In doing so, you also help your school and community, 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.
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. By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution.
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.
Be a Role Model—By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
