Welcome to the 2017-2018 Montevideo Elementary School Year MUSTANG Parent! We are excited to have you join us and would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about the Montevideo Elementary School Parent Teacher Association (PTA).

 

Joining the PTA is an important way to support our school and the efforts of the State and National PTA. Your membership with Montevideo PTA will strengthen our ability to provide the best learning environment for our children through educational, cultural, and social events and activities. The Montevideo PTA is comprised of a dedicated group of volunteers with a wide variety of interests and talents. We encourage you to get involved in any way you can.

 

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our PTA benefits, goals, student life events, programs, and community relations we support throughout the school year.

 

MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS:

 

Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school. Discover great resources. The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.

 

Tap into a Network. PTA functions provide opportunities to meet Montevideo parents, teachers, and our administration, as well as build rapport and discuss parenting issues that are on your mind.

 

Watch yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you gain valuable experiences and personal confidence. It’s an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause.

 

Speak Up. Because PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions and more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.

 

Help Your Child Succeed. PTA fosters parent involvement. Parent involvement has been proven by decades of research to be the greatest predictor of student success.

 

Witness Improvement. By getting involved at your child’s school you will be part of the solution, helping to make positive changes. PTA plays an important role in strengthening the Montevideo Community through social, educational, and cultural events and programs – all vital to a school’s success.

 

Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.

 

Our main GOAL for the 2017-2018 school year are as follows:

 

·        Promote and support the education, health and well-being of the students and families of Montevideo Elementary.

·        Continue to provide consistent communication between school and home, to promote a school community atmosphere of openness and trust.
