About the PTA

At Carthay Center we believe that it is important for home and school to work together to help children successfully adjust to the early elementary grades and to fully benefit from new school experiences.

PTAs serve as a forum where parents, teachers, administrators and other concerned adults discuss ways to promote quality education, strive to expand the arts, encourage community involvement, and work for a healthy environment and safe neighborhoods.

Being involved in PTA allows parents to interact with the teachers and school administration.

We are all there for the education of our children and that gives us a respect for each other and the jobs we are trying to do for our students. The ultimate goal for everyone is to see our children mature in to productive and happy members of society. We all win when that happens. Your membership in PTA means:

  • 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.
