The MLK PTA is an inclusive organization that is open to all adults who care about children and schools.
We have learned that parents mainly want schools to help their child succeed academically, emotionally, and personally. PTA bridges the connection between home and school. By getting involved with the MLK PTA, the child who benefits most is one's own. We reach out to diverse communities to allow parents to more fully integrate their children into the life of a school. We actively invite all parents to be involved in their children's education through participation in the MLK PTA. We work hard to bring mothers, fathers, teachers, school administrators, grandparents, mentors, foster parents, other caregivers, and community leaders into the association. You can join the MLK PTA at any time during the year, although our annual membership drive is in September. Annual dues for individuals are $12.00 per person per year or $20.00 for family membership (2 persons same household) per year. We encourage every parent and every family member to join us in the MLK PTA. Any individual who wishes to volunteer in their child's class room must be the PTA member.
The MLK PTA is an active organization, providing many volunteer services to our children’s school as well as supporting other community organizations.
An important function of the MLK PTA is providing communication between the school and the home. This is accomplished through this website and group email. Monthly PTA meetings provide additional opportunities to learn about what is happening in the school and communicate with the school, voice concerns or ideas. Only PTA members can vote on decisions proposed by the PTA Board.
While volunteer hours of service are most vital, the PTA also finds it necessary to sponsor fundraisers to sponsor 3 learning assemblies, our annual author presentation and book signing, and various family activities, fun field day activities, Scholastic Book Fairs, funding for class trips, scholarships for former MLK students, our staff appreciation luncheon, and our contribution toward 5th Grade Project Graduation just to name a few.
We hope you will join the MLK PTA and become involved in our many activities!
REMEMBER, your child is the one who benefits most!
