What is PTA?
McConnell PTA is a volunteer organization made up of parents (that's right- moms and dads), teachers and community members who wants to make a difference in our children's school experience. All parents are welcomed and appreciated...and you know what, we can never have enough volunteers. Volunteering affords you the opportunity to meet other parents, your child's friends and make a positive contribution to your community.
How are we funded?
Contributions and membership fees made by our parents, teachers and administrators accounts for a small portion of our funding; however, the majority is raised from fundraisers held throughout the school year. Therefore, our vitality depends greatly on our families and community.
