On behalf of the PTA, we would like to welcome everyone back to school. You ask what is PTA? PTA stands for Parent-Teacher Association, consisting of parents and teachers working together to support and enrich all students. We support school staff, help promote student self-esteem, and assist in efforts to solve school needs through volunteering and funding.
What is the PTA and who can be a Member?
The PTA is made up of several executive board members: Tracy Heck is President; Jamie Phillips is Treasurer; Jill Eversole and Christina Hurley are co-vice presidents for Fundraising; Cassie Casale VP of Programs; Kenda Blackwood, membership; and Ashley Padgett, Secretary, and not to mention our wonderful school staff and volunteers. So, who can be a member? Are you a father, mother, protector, guardian, and/or a person who teaches or instructs at Piney Grove? If you answered YES, then we would like you to become a member.
PTA Programs & Fundraising
Our primary objective as a PTA is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources, and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child and to benefit the school. To meet this important objective, we fundraise. Here are a few programs that we sponsor and/or support: Spirit Nights, Parents Night Out, School annual Fall & Spring Book Fairs, Holiday Market, Masquerade Ball Spring Dance, Teacher and Staff Appreciation, Awards Day, Field Day, and various other programs throughout the year.
Become a Volunteer….Why YOU should get involved!
As you can see, we are a busy group. This is where you come in! We need your help, and so do your child(ren). A special thanks to all of our volunteers from last year for all their hard work and dedication. Here at Piney Grove, we strive for excellence and what better way to help than to become involved today. We are in need of growth and are seeking volunteers to continue re-establishing the organization. We have planned some exciting events this year in hopes to get more parents involved in their children’s education. The PTA is a team effort in which we cannot succeed on our own. Please come and join us by signing up or contacting one of the board members today at firstname.lastname@example.org.
