Join the PTA!
First and foremost, if you want to be a part of our PTA - Sign up as a member.
As a member of the PTA, you can vote on measures at our General PTA meetings and have a voice in how our funds are used to support our school and community.
You do not have to be a parent or a teacher to join. Students, grandparents, aunts/uncles, or simply community members who want to invest in our school are eligible to join.
How is money from memberships used?
$4 of every membership goes towards the National PTA and the NC PTA.
Any additional dollars go into our general fund which may be used for a variety of events or activities at our school. When you join the PTA, you have a vote on where that money goes.
Join a committee.
If you want to be more involved in how our dollars are put to use, you can join one of our many committees to help with the planning and execution of activities. Below is a list of our committees and how you might fit in. Click on the headings to email the committee chair to learn more!
