Giving back is something we ALL should do! And what better way to do it then by getting involved with our schools and contributing to the education of the next generation. Schools are always looking for quality help to enhance programs and get more done. Becoming involved is a way to give back while helping to improve the quality education students receive.
, and Community
collaboration has been long documented as an essential partnership to improve schools and elevate student learning and development. According to the Center on School, Family and Community Partnerships at Johns Hopkins University, family and community involvement throughout the various grade levels had a positive impact on student performance.
So, we invite
you to join usand become engaged. Here is how:
Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA)
The PTSA is a grassroots association made up of parents, teachers, students and community members
who have a special interest in children, families and schools. PTSA is the “fan club” for children. PTSA members network and collaborate, support teacher and school goals and initiatives, volunteer for programs that benefit kids, have access to parenting workshops, education and tips and become more informed on issues regarding children and youth. As a result, PTSA members become better parents, teachers and citizens. With PTSA you can improve the quality of life and education in the community. PTSA is the link between home and school. As a PTSA member, you are part of the largest child-advocacy organization in the state –with more than 500,000 members across Texas.For more information on the PTSA visit http://www.txpta.org/

You can volunteer to read to the children, become a chaperone for school events, or help the faculty with special projects.
