What is PTA? It is a non-profit 501c3 organization that advocates for the improvement of our children’s lives, particularly in their education.
Why belong to the PTA? History has shown that a strong PTA is an important component of a healthy school. The Ashley PTA works to help fund and/or provide volunteer support school programs that benefit our student body, staff and families. Do you have an idea to improve our community?
