Why Join PTA

Dozens of research studies show that when parents get involved, children do better in school.

that our PTA provides for your child here at Crescent by

When parents get connected to the school, children get better grades, do better on tests, and have fewer discipline problems. It will also give you a better chance of getting to know school staff, which helps you and your child!

Our PTO helps out in so many fun ways. And because we work together towards one goal, we have a great time doing it.

Parent/Teacher organizations are a way for you to more effectively effect change at your child’s school. You can be at the meetings and have a say in important decisions being made.

The PTA knows what’s happening with the school, who’s involved, and usually plans many of the events. You will have a much stronger connection with your child’s daily activities..

The common bond all parents of school-aged children share is that we care about creating the best possible educational experience for our kids. We are neighbors and peers and as a result, many friendships are forged via this connection.

By getting involved at your child’s school you can help make positive changes. Local PTOs play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs, and social events.

Being part of the local PTO will, in most cases, make your kids proud of you. They may not admit it (they may even grumble), but they will feel proud that their parents are involved in improving their school’s well-being.

PTO functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, to build rapport and discuss issues that are on your mind. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences to make the school year better for everyone.
