Why is PTA Membership so Important?

We get it. As parents, we know it's another form to fill out, another check to write or cash to dig out of the wallet. But why join PTA?

You are not only supporting vital programs at our school, but you are also telling your local, state, and federal lawmakers that Our Children Are Important!

When you purchase the basic $6 membership to Dowell Elementary PTA:

$2.25 goes to National PTA, who has been instrumental in working with the United States Congress for more than 100 years to implement programs, such as:

  • Juvenile Justice System
  • Vaccinations program
  • School lunch programs
  • Keeping arts in the schools

$1.50 goes to Georgia PTA, who works with the Georgia Legislature to implement programs, such as:

  • Keeping food purchases tax free
  • Adequately funding Georgia’s public schools
  • Increasing Georgia’s graduation rates
  • Employing a full time nurse at every school
  • Using multiple methods to measure student success instead of relying solely on standardized tests

$2.25 stays at Dowell Elementary to support all areas of our school, including:

  • Grants for every grade level, specials, and administration
  • Family engagement activities and special events for our students
  • Community outreach programs that directly impact our students
  • Recognition/appreciation for both our staff and students

Enjoy the Intangible Benefits As Well!

The number one reason to join PTA is to benefit all of our children. But there are many more advantages:

  • Get Connected.  There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
  • Discover Great Resources.  The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
  • Tap into a Network.  Parenting is not easy — it helps to share ideas, concerns and experiences with other parents and educators in the community. PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, build rapport and discuss issues that are on your mind.
  • Watch Yourself Grow.  By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences. It’s an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause — your child and all children in the community.
  • Speak Up.  Because the PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions. PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
  • Witness Improvement.  By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. Local PTAs play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs, and social events — all vital to a school’s success.
  • Be a Role Model.  By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
