PTAs are needed now more than ever and the resources and tools on this at this link will help demonstrate your PTA's value and relevance and keep your PTA members—and mission partners—connected and focused on objectives central to the needs of the children, families , and schools we serve.
The National PTA School of Excellence is a recognition program that supports and celebrates partnerships between local PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being for all students. This year we are pleased to announce the following Local Units are National Level Honorees:
Eden Gardens Fundamental Magnet, PTA, Shreveport
Fairfield Elementary Magnet PTA, Shreveport
Mandeville Elementary School PTA, Mandeville
Marigny Elementary School PTA, Mandeville
South Highlands Elementary Magnet PTA, Shreveport
Those that exhibit improvement are honored as National PTA Schools of Excellence, a distinction that spans two years. Honorees receive celebration tools and automatic consideration for the top honors, the Phoebe Apperson Hearst Award and a $2,000 grant for their school. PTAs are encouraged to renew their designation each year, or every other year, to continue to build on their momentum.
Your School of Excellence designation will help attract new, action-oriented PTA members who want to focus on the issues that affect our children the most. And being a National PTA School of Excellence will open the door to other honors and opportunities for your school.
To help ease the emerging challenges this pandemic presents, National PTA has compiled resources, tools and information to support our families and teachers who are navigating working, teaching and learning at home. Read here for stories of how PTAs across the country are helping their communities.
Our shared mission in PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
