Join Your PTA Today, Volunteer, Start a PTA
There’s only one PTA.
Part of school and family life for more than a century, PTA (Parent Teacher Association®) or PTSA (Parent-Teacher-Student Association®) is the defining organization for family engagement. As a member of your school’s PTA, you can continue the legacy of advocacy for children, families and communities.
PTA is a grassroots organization in local communities and throughout the nation for people who have an interest in children, families and schools. PTA membership is as diverse as Washington is in cultures, education levels and parenting skills. By joining a local PTA, a member becomes part of the Washington State PTA which is the largest volunteer and child advocacy organization in the state with over 130,000 members.
Our future leaders, innovators and citizens are our children, and our children are given their best chance to succeed when we all work together. Members of PTA provide a powerful and effective voice for all children.
