What is “PTA”?
Joaquin Miller Elementary’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) connects Miller’s families, teachers, staff, and community in the common goal to help our students get the most out of their time at their school. From www.pta.org: “PTA’s mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.” At Miller, our PTA strives to provide educational opportunities through field trips and school programs, connect parents with teachers and staff to learn what is happening at Miller, as well as provide family experiences to encourage and strengthen the community at our elementary school.
We encourage all families to join the PTA and learn more about what is happening at Miller, to share your concerns, and to help make Miller Elementary the best school for our children. Our success depends 100% on the time, effort, and input of the amazing parent volunteers and staff, towards programs that benefit every child at Miller. To learn more about joining the PTA or attending a meeting, please email MillerElemPTA@gmail.com.
What does Miller PTA do?
Miller PTA raises funds to pay for buses for field trips, educational assemblies and money to buy books for our school library. Miller PTA also sponsors events to bring families and neighbors together, such as our fall picnic, spring movie night, and breakfast and books. We support our terrific teachers and superior staff by hosting Teacher Appreciation Week, Welcome Back to School Staff Luncheon, the Kindergarten Tea, as well as volunteering in the classrooms and around school. PTA sponsors programs like Ticket to Read.
