Welcome to the 2023-2024 School Year!
Our meetings for the 2023-2024 school year will be on third Tuesdays of the year, starting with Tuesday September 19th after school. Like last year, we will likely be alternating doing meetings at 4:15pm in person (in the school library, come at 4pm for social time - also feel free to join late, leave early, bring your kids etc; we are truly very flexible) and virtually (7-8pm; via zoom link) to accommodate different parent schedules.
You don't need to join PTA to help out and volunteer, and you don't need to volunteer when you are on PTA - make the commitment that feels right to you.
We want to meet you, and help all families enjoy their time at Evergreen Heights Elementary!
What is PTA? (from the WSPTA website)
Founded in 1905, the Washington Congress of Parents and Teachers, now known as the Washington State Parent Teacher Association (WSPTA), is the largest non-profit, volunteer organization in Washington. As the premier parent organization, with over 100,000 members in more than 875 local PTAs, the association is an innovative, forward-thinking, and effective advocate for children.
Our vision is that every child’s potential becomes a reality.
Our mission is for PTA to be:
- A powerful voice for children,
- A relevant resource for families, schools and communities, and
- A strong advocate for the well-being and education of all children.
When you join your local Parent Teacher Association (PTA) or Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA), you become part of our state association and the larger National PTA. Your voice joins tens of thousands across Washington and millions across the United States, including the U.S. Virgin Islands, Europe and Puerto Rico, as advocates for children.
