PTA Meetings

Family Involvement | McKinley PTA

Join the PTA (Parent Teacher Association)

What does PTA do?

PTA raises money and organizes volunteers to enrich our children's experience at McKinley Elementary School.
PTA funds many things, like:

  • buses for field trips
  • art, curriculum garden, & classroom supplies
  • educational assemblies
  • library books, and more

PTA organizes families to help in the classroom and around the school, fund-raise, and put on events that bring our whole community together (and that our children quite enjoy!).

You are vital to our PTA efforts to provide McKinley students exceptional opportunities. The more who volunteer, the more vibrant our community becomes!
