The overall purpose of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
PTA Addresses issues that are important to parents and public school administrators. As a PTA, we help to:
Leverage Volunteer Power. PTA organizes hard-working, dedicated volunteers.
Improve Communication. The production of informational flyers, general meetings, and updates on our facebook page help to keep the entire school community informed about current events, issues, and accomplishments.
See Measureable Results. More than 85 research studies conducted over the past 30 years prove that kids do better when parents are involved. Grades are higher. Test scores improve. Attendance increases.
Create Informed Parents. Involved parents understand the challenges schools face and become part of the solution.
Fulfill NCLB Obligations. PTA helps Sterling Park Elementary fulfill the parent involvement requirement of the No Child Left Behind Act.

Founded in 1897 as the National Congress of Mothers by Alice McLellan Birney and Phoebe Apperson Hearst, PTA is a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education.
Not Your Mother's PTA
Today's PTA is a network of millions of men and women, families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of family engagement in schools.
