A big thank you to those who have contributed to the Lowrie PTA in many different ways. If you have not yet joined the PTA please do consider being a member and make our school a memorable place to be in with your support. The rewards outweigh the efforts by far.
One can contribute at a number of levels and yes many hands make light work! Contribute in ways that suits you…join simply to be a member or join in to take minor responsibilities or become a part of the executive team. We hope you have enjoyed various PTA sponsored events throughout the school year. If you are on the fence then stated below are the reasons why the PTA is necessary.
What is PTA? Why join PTA? The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more PTA 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. PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences.
Watch Yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause—your child and all children in the community.
Speak Up. 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.
Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
