Being on your school’s PTA is no easy feat! With PTA elections right around the corner, whether you are running to be elected to your school’s PTA or you are a parent voting for next year’s PTA members, it is important to realize all of the responsibilities that come with this position. We found this website from PTO Today that is a great resource for everything you need to know about preparing new members and serving on your school’s PTA.
Afterschool activities are a crucial part of the PTA’s responsibilities that very often get left out off the to-do list. The first, and most important, decision to make is to determine who is going to run the program. Consider asking around to see if there might be a teacher who is interesting in running it. If not, the PTA can reach out to parents and elect a parent representative to take on the responsibility of planning the school’s afterschool program.
