Join your PTA

Becoming a member of the PTA gives you a vote on PTA matters, including how to spend and allocate our funds. Your membership dues also help to fund insurance for events hosted on school grounds outside of school hours, such as the Spring Faire.

  • Make a connection: Form bonds with other parents, the principal, teachers and faculty.
  • Help our community: The PTA is a great forum for exchanging ideas, affecting change in our school and community, and moving innovative ideas forward.
  • Grow from your involvement: Gain valuable experiences and use your skills for a good cause.

How do I join?

Join the PTA by filling out the form that goes home at the beginning of the year and returning it to Mary in the office (she has additional copies if you need one). Email us with questions here.

How much does it cost?

A PTA membership costs $10/person.

As a member, what do I have to do?

The time and energy you devote is up to you—from simply voicing your opinions at a meeting, to taking on any of our small or larger jobs. Here are all the ways to get involved:

  • Attend Monthly PTA Meetings: Each month we have in-person and Zoom meetings where we hear updates from our principal, the steering committee, and coordinators. Look for announcements of times/locations via ParentSquare.
  • Be on the Steering Committee: Leadership meets weekly via zoom to discuss current items.
  • Be a Coordinator: The PTA does a lot because of all the great coordinators. As coordinator you are responsible for organizing a PTA event or program, and reporting at the monthly PTA meetings. Coordinator terms are typically yearly. When you are ready to finish your term, we ask that you document your position and train the next volunteer coordinator. Check out our volunteer section to learn more about ways for you to get involved.
  • Volunteer at an Events: If you’d rather just volunteer when you can, then a great way is to volunteer for a PTA event. Announcements for volunteers get sent our in the lead up to events and usually use SignupGenius for registering for a volunteer time slot. This is an easy way to volunteer some time when you have it.
  • Donate what you can: All donations go directly to the Manor PTA. See our donations page for more details.
