What do the members of a school community group or PTA do?
PTA members don’t have to do anything but are welcome to do many things. As a PTA member you do get many great benefits, and you get the opportunity to participate in fun community events all year, from Holiday parties and decorating to fundraising and helping to keep our education community space safe and beautiful. Membership is just a few dollars per person every year, and you can send it to your school by mail or with your student if you select a school-based PTA or online if you choose a community-based PTA. It’s never too late to join, but the earlier you sign up, the more benefits you earn for your student and the sooner you can start participating in existing events or creating your own new events.
What kind of Community Groups are available for students, educators and families of public and private schools in Crestwood Kentucky?
Most public and private elementary and middle schools have either a PTA (public schools only), a parent-teacher organization (PTO) or an equivalent local organization. These organizations also exist (though less frequently) at high schools and preschools. Every person who joins a local PTA automatically becomes a member of both the state's PTA and National PTA. PTA membership – including the number of affiliated units and of individual members – has been declining for several decades. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parent-teacher_association
