What does it mean to be a PTA member? It means you are interested in staying informed and involved in your child's educational experience. Do you have to attend the PTA meetings? No. Do you have to volunteer your time? No. While those things are helpful, the only requirement is your interest in creating the best environment for your child and the Meadow Brook community.
How can you participate?
- Talk with other parents about what is happening in our school - field trips, curriculum, school culture, assemblies, etc.
- Read the information and articles provided by the state and national PTA organizations. Their websites include family engagement strategies, homework help, child safety tips and much more.
- Attend PTA meetings. Ours are held monthly, on a Tuesday, from 6:30-8:00 p.m., in the media center. Our meeting calendar is available below for your reference.
- Read the PTA newsletter (sent via email on Fridays).
- Attend Meadow Brook social events to encourage a cohesive Meadow Brook community.
- Volunteer to help with a Meadow Brook event.
- Follow local and statewide legislative news regarding our schools. Talk with your senators and state representatives. Attend school board meetings.
