The Downtown School Parent Teacher AssociationWho/What is PTA?
"Parent-Teacher Association" and "PTA" are registered service marks of the National Congress of Parents and Teachers (National PTA). Only those groups chartered by the North Carolina PTA are entitled to use the name "PTA". The Downtown School PTA is a local unit made up of parents, teachers, administrators, local business owners, etc. who wish to participate in the overall development of the children in our community.
Each of the schools within the Winston Salem/ Forsyth County School System have individual PTA units which are guided by the WSFCS Council of PTAs.
Here at the Downtown School we pride ourselves in our ability to support both academic and cultural arts programs within the school. We work one on one with administration and the teaching staff to try to meet the needs of the school. In addition, we also promote the idea of family by hosting family evening programs such as Skate Nights and Restaurant Nights. The Book Fair, T-Shirt Sales, and Yearbook Sales have all been extremely successful in the past and continue to be a priority for us. We are planning many exciting programs for the coming school year.
We hope to see all of you at our Four general PM PTA meetings which are listed on the DTS PTA Calendar of Events. We would love to see you all, but we do understand that there are those of you who can not make the meetings due to other commitments. We will add our monthly meeting minutes and budget to this site to accommodate those of you who are unable to attend. Our hope is to reach out to everyone - if not in person, then in cyberspace.

If you would like to contact any of us, please use the e-mail links on the Officers page.

Thank you in advance for considering to join us and become an active member of the DTS PTA. We look forward to working with you!!
