What is the PTA?

The Parent Teacher Association is made up of parents and other caregivers, teachers, school administration, and staff.  The members of the PTA help to provide and support educational programs, assemblies, and events for the students throughout the school year.  The PTA is a great way to be a stronger presence in your child’s education, and to support and work with the teachers, school administration, and staff at our school.

How do I become a member?

To become a member of the PTA is very simple.  You will fill out a quick registration form and then pay a yearly membership due of $6.50. This payment of cash or check (made out to McClellan PTA) can be submitted to PTA board members at events, or sent into school with your child and dropped-off in the office. By joining the McClellan Elementary PTA, you are also automatically a member of both The Pennsylvania State PTA, and The National PTA. For further information on the benefits of this, you can visit their websites at:  www.papta.org  and www.pta.org .

Where does my dues money go?

The money from your dues is split 3 ways:

$1.50 goes to your local PTA (McClellan Elementary)

$2.75 goes to the State PTA

$2.25 goes to the National PTA

How can I become more involved?

The best way to get involved is to join the PTA and sign up to be on a committee. PTA committees are responsible for numerous PTA-related functions. From decorating the school, running events, or conducting fundraisers, there are plenty of opportunities that could benefit from your talents. Committees also need chairs to organize fellow volunteers and lead their efforts. Even if you choose not to become a member at this time, you can still support your school, and the PTA, by attending events and participating in fundraisers. We always value your contributions.
