PTA membership supports vital programs at Douglas that enrich your child’s education and support our talented teachers in delivering the best classroom experience for your child.
Why join the Douglas PTA? Here are a few reasons:
We make a difference. Our mission is to create the kind of school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work—and so can our children. We provide support for teachers in and out of the classroom. We provide resources they need. We help create learning opportunities for children. And we try to build the kind of supportive, caring atmosphere that makes school fun.
We pledge to honor your time constraints. People are often reluctant to participate because they’re afraid they’ll get pulled into a black hole of never-ending time commitment. That won’t happen here. An hour or two a semester really makes a difference. And we won’t push you to commit more than you want to or are able to.
You’ll meet nice people who share your concerns. We all have a common bond. We care about creating the best possible educational experiences for our children.
There’s a lot to be done. These days, schools are asked to do more with less. Our help is needed more than ever to fill the gaps.
We can match jobs to your interests and abilities. The work we do covers a broad spectrum. We encourage creative ideas, and we’re thrilled to have people take on tasks that meet their skills and interests.
We’re welcoming. To us, there are no “outsiders.” We are people who have come together to work toward common goals.
This work is rewarding. It’s seeing the bright light of learning sparkle in a child’s eye. It’s seeing the smile that shows we’re making school a little more fun—and a child feel a little more comfortable in a learning environment. There are lots of rewards, both big and small, for those who get involved.
You can help even if you don’t have time. Just by paying your $12 membership fee, you can make a difference. Both your dues and any donations you choose to make are 100% tax deductible. Some parents offer time and some offer resources. We appreciate the support you are able to give.
Thank you for your support!
