McKinley PTA

The purpose of the PTA is to build strong connection between school and home in order to support the education of our children. It is a very active group and we encourage everyone to join. The membership fee is only $20. You can download a membership form here. You do not have to join in order to participate/volunteer, but please note that you must be a member to vote. While often it seems that the PTA is synonymous with fundraising, our PTA also organizes and hosts many social and educational events.  We encourage 100% participation!
