PTA Welcome letter

September 29, 2015

Dear McNair Families: Welcome to the 2015-16 school year from the PTA president and Board members to all of our students, parents, teachers and administrators at McNair Elementary! The PTA once again has a large agenda and we need as much support from our parents and teachers as possible. We need volunteers for all of our events and activities so be on the lookout for our messages and communications to you.

There are so many misunderstandings about joining the PTA. I’d like to take a moment to point out some myths so everyone can understand the importance of becoming a PTA member.

  1. Only Moms and Teachers need to join the PTA
    A strong PTA needs the support of parents, family members, teachers, school staff and community members. Anyone who cares about children belongs in the PTA!
  2. Joining the PTA means I have to volunteer
    The PTA appreciates everyone’s membership, whether or not a member volunteers. You will not be sucked into a black hole of volunteering!
  3. I have to be a Board Member or Chair a Committee to join the PTA
    Wrong! Your wonderful support will suffice!
  4. PTA membership never expires. I only have to join once
    Each new school year begins a new PTA membership year.
  5. I don’t have the time to join the PTA
    If you are unable to volunteer your time, please consider becoming a member and give your financial support. Your support helps fund events and activities for the children during the school year.
  6. I’ll get roped into volunteering if I attend a PTA meeting
    There will be opportunities to get involved, but no pressure. No judgement here!
  7. The PTA is only for stay-at-home-parents with nothing else to do
    Your fellow PTA members are family and community members who want to support the children and the school. Most members are juggling bills, household chores, kids, sports and homework, just like you!
  8. My child’s life will be the same whether or not I join the PTA
    Not only does membership put you in direct contact with other parents and teachers, it shows your child that you are interested and invested in their educational experience.
  9. The PTA has all the help they need
    The PTA always wants and always needs volunteers. If you choose to volunteer, you decide your time commitment!
  10. I have an idea but the PTA isn’t interested
    New ideas are always welcome! It’s important to keep your PTA fresh and exciting!
Please consider becoming a member of the PTA. There is nothing more important to any of us than the experience and education we give our children. Together we can do great things!

McNair PTA President
