Why join the PTA
What is PTA? Why Join PTA?
The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more PTA advantages:
Get to go to School: When you sign up, you get the first opportunity as a member to volunteer at school events hosted by the PTA. Make sure you join our Volunteer list.
Participate in programs and win prizes: During the year, we may run special programs, prize draws and other opportunities for members.
Get Connected There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
Discover Great Resources The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
Tap into a Network PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences.
Watch Yourself Grow By volunteering with your PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause—your child and all children in the community.
Speak Up PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
Witness Improvement By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. Local PTAs play an important role by supporting building improvements through advocacy and play an important role in fundraising for curriculum based programs and social events.
Be a Role Model By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
Donate to PTA
At Mattos, our pledge drives work a little different from some of the other schools. Here instead of parents bringing in supplies year-round to the classrooms, we make it a little simple by taking care of that year-round. For this reason, we do one fundraising at the start of the school year.
To allow us to cover everything from school supplies to programs, events, field trips, and much more we recommend a donation of $150 per child for the school year.
We launched Blossoms in 2020, an enrichment endeavor that aims to inculcate and cultivate varying skills in students by means of bi-monthly themes, with a vision to engage them in learning beyond school.
Just as blossoms on a tree denote their future fruition, our Blossoms Program symbolically represents our students with many hidden talents and skills, only awaiting their bloom!
Check out some of our past blossoms events
Phoenix Bazaar is a PTA sponsored program run in partnership with the School where kids are awarded points for all good actions they take throughout the year be it for helping another child, showing qualities like unity, courage, perseverance, respect, peacefulness, confidence, kindness, justice, generosity, thankfulness, determination to name a few.
PTA welcomes you to 2022-23 school year
Our PTA is made up of so many important pieces - parents, teachers, grandparents, guardians, school staff, and others in the community that want to improve the educational lives of our children.
The PTA provides a variety of activities, fundraisers, and services throughout the year. It is our hope that every family can participate, so we can better serve our children and their needs – which includes enhancing their school day and giving them memories they’ll always treasure.
We aim to be the bridge between parents, kids, and their teachers and school. If there is any area you feel PTA can help out please send us an email at email@example.com. We would love to hear back from parents and work with them for solutions, innovations, complaints, feedback, and ideas.
2022-23 is our 4th year at Mattos and the 1st year at full capactiy after the school construction completed early this year. We are just getting started. We look forward to all parents joining us and our kids in this journey !!
Already a Volunteer? Please do submit your hours. Submitting hours can help us track the work you do, ensure our hour logs are up to date, get company matches in some cases, and raise funds.
Thank you for a wonderful 2021-22
We, at the Mattos PTA Board, truly appreciate our volunteers from last year for all that they have done to support the PTA in its every effort to help our children bloom!
