South End PTA Membership Drive
What? This year the South End PTO decided to change to a PTA. By joining with the NC PTA Organization, our PTA is able to take advantage of programs and services not found in a PTO. It also gives us a non-profit status allowing all contributions made to your PTA tax deductible. It has taken the Board time this school year to get everything together to make this changeover happen. It may seem late in the year to hold this membership drive but we need you!
Here are some PTA Member Benefits:
• Name recognition as part of a national organization • Access to grant opportunities • Teacher scholarship Opportunities • Training for local leaders • Publications and 24/7 website resources • Information on pending legislation and policy • Volunteer education advocates • Conferences and workshops • Recognition and awards for outstanding local programs and individuals • Networking opportunities • Resources for exceptional children. •Resources on health and nutrition • Special Programs • Unified voices influencing public policy and legislation.
NCPTA is proud to carry on the tradition and purpose of PTA by advocating for all children in North Carolina. Membership is open to anyone who believes in helping children succeed. Every person who joins a local PTA automatically becomes a member of both the state and national PTA’s.
