PTA Involvement Ideas

The National PTA states that whether you spend three hours or three months volunteering in a way that works for you, remember that you're not just helping your child for the year, but you're setting your child up for success throughout their entire academic career. Below are additional ideas for parental involvement in schools.

1. Participate in PTA's Teacher Appreciation Week by organizing a breakfast or lunch.
2. Get to know your child's teacher by introducing yourself and scheduling a brief meeting.
3. Create a community bulletin board at the school to post information or ideas.
4. Participate in PTA's Take Your Family To School Week, celebrated each February.
5. Participate in American Education Week, sponsored by the National Education Association by visiting the school and classroom.
6. Record yourself reading books onto tapes so children with reading challenges can enjoy them.
7. Host a block meeting at your home with other parents to discuss/share school issues and information.
8. Offer to drive other students/families to school-related events they wouldn't otherwise be able to attend.
9. Invite other parents to join you when you volunteer at school.
10. Join your local PTA.
