Dear Business Owner,

Thanks for your interest in becoming a business member with the Rochester Community PTA Council. As a PTA business partner, you are linked with 15,000 Rochester Community Schools (RCS) students and their families, including 8,500 active PTA members. These are powerful and beneficial collaborations.

You can also take pride in being part of a PTA Council that was recognized for the following accomplishments:

• 2016-17 Healthy Lifestyles Award from the Michigan PTA for caring about the wellness and success of the “whole child.”

• 2016 Outstanding Local PTA Advocacy Award from the National PTA for improving the well-being of students in our 21 schools and for providing leadership for children’s issues across the state of Michigan. Our influence extends beyond our own district lines.

• 2015-2016 Award of Excellence from the Michigan PTA for the valuable relationships we’ve nurtured with the business community.

To join us in supporting more exciting opportunities for students and families, we are asking you to consider a business membership with the Rochester Community PTA Council. For a $100 annual membership, your business will have the following opportunities:

  • Meeting sponsorship: Business members can sponsor one PTA Council meeting during the 2016-17 school year. Here, we read a promotional piece about your business, you can set up a tabletop display and be at the meeting if you choose (but if not, we will represent you well!), and you can hand out promotional materials, flyers, or giveaways. You are able to meet personally with 50-60 PTA leaders from every school throughout the district, as well as RCS executive-level leaders. This is a very influential group that represents the interests of local families.
  • Social media mentions: Throughout the year, we are happy to promote our partnerships by linking followers of our Facebook pages and/or websites to your own business pages.
  • Advertisements: Two times a year, your interactive logo or ad will be featured in our monthly Council Connections newsletter, which is distributed electronically to all the families in the district. We are expanding our capabilities and will add a hyperlink from your logo or ad to any spot you designate: a special promotion coupon on your web page, your Facebook page, or any other landing site you choose. View archived newsletters here: http://www.rochester.k12.mi.us/pages/5290/council-connections-newsletter but know that a re-design is in the works.
  • Program sponsorship: Your support will be recognized in programs and promotional materials for our annual community-wide events, such as Founders Day and the STEAM Career Fair.

And, most importantly, your business is recognized as a good neighbor for contributing to our most valuable community asset, our students and schools. You can find a membership form and instructions in the attached document.

The economic vitality of the Rochester area is linked to its schools, which heavily influence home values, the “quality of life” in our community, and the ability of local businesses to attract and retain talent. With state funding to our schools being cut, we need your support more than ever.

The Rochester Community PTA Council looks forward to your participation in making a difference in the lives of our children. In other words, thanks for helping to put the “community” in Rochester Community Schools.

Thank you for your consideration,

Lisa Roscoe

PTA Council Membership Chair
