2023/24 PTA Membership

Please join us! The price of membership is only $5! This amount will cover the costs of your membership that are required of us by Ohio & National PTA, both of which constantly advocate for our children at the state and national level through lobbying for our public schools, our teachers, and most importantly, our children and families. We appreciate your membership, as this information will allow us to keep in touch with you and keep you updated on PTA happenings.

If able, a donation to the PTA would be greatly appreciated and utilized to help support our students and staff, and enable us to provide fun family friendly events throughout the school year. Donations also allow us to fundraise less, and spend more time and energy on enrichment and fun! Thank you for donating, we really appreciate you!
