Wondering why it’s important to join the Douglas PTA? Not sure why your single membership matters? Here are a few reasons:
We make a difference.
The National PTA aims to “make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.” We are dedicated to creating the kind of school community where children can thrive and teachers and administrators can do their best work.
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.
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.
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 a child feels 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. We appreciate any support you are able to give.
