Your Adams PTA membership matters!
Why does your membership matter? The obvious answer is that your membership directly impacts our students by supporting our many programs and events. What you may not know is that the PTA is, above all else, is an advocacy organization. In fact, the national PTA is the oldest child advocacy organization in the United State; and is responsible for many of the child-focused programs, laws, and guidelines that we as parents often take for granted.
BECOME A MEMBER!
Your PTA membership is Adams's legislative voice.
Your membership dues are used to pay our Washington State and Seattle PTA dues. The more members our PTA has, the more voting delegates we get at the state level. More voting delegates means more votes that support the interest of Adams Elementary and it’s families.
Our goal is to reach 100% family participation.
Without discrimination, membership is open to anyone who supports the purposes and basic policies of the National PTA, WSPTA and the Adams PTA.
You may buy up to four memberships at a time. This allows you to set up a membership for yourself and up to three additional family members or friends who would like to join. In addition, you may choose to sponsor a teacher’s membership or donate to our membership scholarship fund.
The PTA does not want lack of funds to prevent anyone who wants to participate as a member to do so.
