 Why Join PTSA?

 Today, more than ever, schools are challenged to provide every child with the best education despite growing limitations.  Budgets are tight—in most cases, shrinking—while government requirements are growing.  The Number One reason to join PTA is to benefit your child.  In doing so, you’ll also help your school.  Here are five reasons you shouldn’t let the school year go by without becoming a member.  

  1. Get connected.  There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school than by joining PTSA.  Through our PTSA email system, you will be kept in the loop on information pertinent to McEachern, and find out what you can do to help make a difference for your child. See other side for information on how to register for e-News.
  2. Discover great resources.  As part of the National PTA, we have access to a wide variety of resources to assist with everything from help with homework to learning how to talk to your child about difficult topics such as bullying and alcohol and other drugs. The National PTA website is http://www.pta.org/.
  3. Watch yourself grow.  By volunteering with our PTSA, you put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause—your child and all children in the community.  You can try new things and gain confidence, whether you’re coordinating a college/career center, writing a newsletter article, organizing a fundraiser or assisting with a faculty dinner. Please send email to mceachernptsa@earthlink.net.
  4. Witness improvement.  By getting involved, you’ll be part of the solution.  Over the past 100 years, PTA has been the driving force in establishing school lunch programs, after-school programs, immunization programs, school bus safety, TV rating standards and much more!
  5. Be a role model.  As a PTSA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.  You’ll be teaching your child about giving back to the community, and you’ll feel good knowing that what you do through PTSA is helping not only your child but all children receive a better education.

 To become a member of McEachern’s PTSA, print the membership form found on this page and send it to school with your student in an envelope.  Please include $5 for each membership you purchase.  All senior students wanting to apply for a PTSA scholarship need to be a member by the end of first semester.  PTSA awards four $1,000 scholarships each year.


Keep investing in your children's future

         Communicating with local and state decision makers on issues and concerns facing today's children.

         Growing personally and professionally through leadership development.

         Obtaining valuable resources and materials on parenting, education, health, and safety topics.

         Uniting with a national association that advocates exclusively on behalf of all children.
