The Value of PTA Membership
PTA connects families and schools. By joining PTA you show your children that school matters, and that you are invested in their success. Three decades of research proves that students achieve higher grades, have better attendance and more consistently complete homework when parents are involved – and just the act of joining PTA is a great way to get involved.
PTA helps ensure that parents have a seat at the table when important decisions that affect schools are made. PTA works together to improve the education, health and safety of all children.
Become a member of the nation’s largest and most powerful children’s advocacy association in the country.
There are other types of parent groups out there, but there is only one PTA! Connecting families and schools for more than 115 years,
PTA is the largest children’s advocacy organization in the country.
Here are just a few reasons to join PTA:
- Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school, or to develop a relationship with your child’s teacher and principal.
- Discover Great Resources. The PTA offers a variety of programs and materials for students, parents, families, schools and communities.
- Speak Up. PTA gives you a “seat at the table” when important decisions are made about your child’s school.
- Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
- Enjoy Substantial Benefits. PTA members enjoy exclusive member perks including discounts on school supplies, rental cars, wireless services and more.
- Make a Difference! By working together, PTA members have helped advance local, state and national laws and policies to improve the education, health and safety of all children.
In addition to supporting the PTA mission of advocating for children, promoting parent and family involvement in schools, and improving the lives of all children and families, membership also offers a few perks available exclusively to PTA members, including Legoland discounts, Enterprise Rental car discounts, STAPLES discounts and more!

How your dues are used
Your Dues make possible all the State National and District activities that affect the welfare of virtually all children throughout our entire land. They also help supply the materials which the officers and members of your unit need to become better informed and efficient Parent-Teacher workers.
Joining PTA is a great way to support your school. PTA membership shows your children that you care about their education and helps support critical needs at your school site. As a member, you have a vote in how PTA funds are spent. Please remember that if you have children at multiple schools, you must join each school PTA separately.
And when you join PTA you can feel proud that you are part of the largest volunteer organizations in the country dedicated to improving the well-being of children and youth!
