What does PTA do at Mathews?
Mathews PTA is a member organization of the National PTA,
the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation.
As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child and the best tools to help their children be safe, healthy, and successful – in school and in life. The vision: To make every child’s potential a reality. The mission: To be a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for the education and wellbeing of every child.
Being an involved parent is the best thing you can do for your child’s education –
and joining Mathews PTA is the easiest way to get involved.
Children whose parents participate in their school have higher grades and test scores and better attendance, and are more likely to be well adjusted and enjoy school, according to a report from the National PTA and the National Coalition for Parental Involvement in Education (NCPIE). The U.S. Department of Education and the National Committee for Citizens in Education also report that children of involved parents achieve more in school.
The number one reason to join Mathews PTA is to benefit your child. You will also help the school and all Mathews students. You’ll get connected – there’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school. You’ll tap into a network, meet other parents and teachers, and discuss what’s on your mind. You’ll watch yourself grow as you put your skills to use for a noble cause: your child and all children in the community. You’ll raise your voice to effect change in the school. You’ll be a role model, demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
