Recently, we received a message from a new CRS parent who brought up a GREAT and very timely question: Why join the PTA?
Simply put, the $15 you spend on your annual PTA membership is one of the easiest ways you can help positively impact your child's education. Our goal, each year, is 100% participation! Members can be parents (many families choose to get more than one membership!), guardians, caregivers, teachers, staff and others in the community who care about our children's education.
All funds raised by our PTA go to supporting PTA programming. The PTA spends about $30,000 each year on programs to enhance our children's educational and social well-being. This includes the vast majority of in-school assemblies, social events for the kids and families, a full-day "Education Day" and much, much more! We need much more than our membership dues to make all this possible, and so we hold fundraisers throughout the year. We hope you'll support those too!
A few more reasons to join:
Special discounts negotiated by the New Jersey PTA. Click to view them here.
Ability to attend PTA meetings and vote on important decisions. We welcome all to attend our first PTA meeting on Sept. 14!
Opportunity to serve as class parent.
Becoming a member is a simple way to support our CRS Community. Our membership drive ends Sept. 29 -- September is PTA Membership Month -- but you can join anytime! Become a PTA member today!
