School 12 PTA
The School 12 is fortunate to have an active and vibrant PTA. Our PTA is responsible for fundraising that allows our school to add to our school library, go on field trips, bringing in visiting artists and authors, sponsor family events such our annual sledding and ice skating parties, and serve as line of advocacy for parent questions and concerns. The PTA is made up of parents, grandparents, staff and volunteers.

Why become a member?
Joining our PTA allows us leverage when discussing school issues with the School district. Where as maintaining a high number of involved families is not our primary goal, the reality is numbers garner the attention we need to make sure our voices are heard. The larger and more diverse our PTA grows, the larger the influence outside our school walls will grow too. Our membership should represent the diverse background of the families that make up School 12! Our community can only grow and deliver more to our students if you add your voice.
