Parent Teacher Student Association
1. What is PTSA?
PTSA stands for Parent Teacher Student Association. PTSA is a volunteer association where parents, educators, students, and other citizens can be active in their schools and communities. The purpose of PTSA is to promote the welfare of children and youth at home, at school, and throughout the community.
2. What does it mean "to join PTSA"?
Our goal is to create a relationship through collaboration with students, families, schools, and the community. We provide the following in order to promote student success:
- Provide teachers with monetary support for all related to school activities or programs
- Teacher Appreciation Week
- Funding for 8th Grade Promotion.
- Provide scholarships for student field trips.
3. How do we know that PTSA money is really being used for our children?
Any parent is welcome to participate in any PTA event. Our records are not confidential and we would be glad to explain PTSA money distribution to anyone.
4. Can anyone volunteer and help at school?
Yes. We welcome anyone who can assist us!
5. Do PTSA members get paid when working at the schools?
No. PTSA members volunteer their time, and we welcome anyone who is willing to assist them. Our parents work very hard to fundraise for special programs at Oak Grove Middle School.
6. Can anyone become a member?
Yes. Anyone, including students, can be a PTSA member.
7. Do we have to volunteer in the school to be a member?
No. You are NOT REQUIRED to volunteer any time for our events and/or fundraising. We appreciate your assistance, but we would appreciate it if you do.
