    Join the PTA
     
    This year we are completely online.  You can join the PTA at by following THIS LINK.
    Your dues support our programming, teacher and facility grants, and include a physical school directory and access to the online directory.  Once you have joined, you can also download the Membership Toolkit app for easy access to the directory on your phone. 
     
    For the PTA to be effective and truly representative of the school, everyone's participation is essential. We still need room parents to help connect our classes and community.

    What is the PTA?
     
    The Parent Teacher Assocciation is a naional organization of families, students, teachers, and
    administrators devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of family
    engagement.
     
    The West Maple PTA is commited to providing an inclusive and collaborative environment that
    will enable the best learning and enjoyable experience for our children.
     
    We believe parent participation enhances our capability to make the biggest difference for our
    children.

    Why should you join PTA?
     
    • Be Involved! At PTA meetings and events, you can raise concerns, suggest ideas, and give
    input on how funds are spent.
     
    • Build community! Meet other parents and interact with their families at the many social
    events we hope to start having again someday, like the Welcome Back Carnival, Movie
    Night, Bingo Night, and tons more!
     
    • Benefit your child(ren)! When parents get connected to the school, children get better grades,
    do better on tests, and have fewer discipline problems. When you build relationships with
    your child’s teachers, administrators, and office staff, it will be far easier to communicate
    about any problem (or victory) that occurs throughout the year.
