The PTA is the oldest and largest association of parents, teachers and other interested citizens devoted to advocacy on behalf of children and youth. Not only is it the largest, but it is the one group wholly dedicated to improving all aspects of children’s lives. Although today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders, they don’t have a voting voice. Without that voice, they are silenced about issues affecting their lives. We must be their voice! The primary purpose of the PTA, local, state and national, is to ensure the children receive the services and protection they need to succeed in and out of school and to preserve and improve public education.
Garfield hopes for your support at the PTA meetings. We also welcome teachers to our meetings, who share their expertise about instructional programs. That is the time we can all get together and form a support group to improve our children’s education and thereby the welfare of everyone’s future.
