Support THE CORBELL COMMUNITY
Get involved for your children and for your community. Studies have shown that membership in PTA provides your child and other children around you with a greater chance of achieving in school. As a PTA member, you are more likely to be an informed, involved parent. Learn ways to keep children safe and involved in school. PTA is the place to gain that knowledge.
PTA provides opportunities to meet with others who have the same interests as you. By sharing common concerns, you will feel more empowered. Being part of PTA connects families and schools and results in parental support and makes school involvement easier. PTA also provides educational opportunities. From Corbell PTA’s parent education meetings to the Texas PTA Annual Convention, PTA encourages learning and the sharing of accomplishments, interests and concerns. Ultimately, PTA provides the opportunity to serve, to volunteer and to contribute to the welfare of all children, because children represent our future. PTA will introduce you to a great variety of new activities and opportunities to share your special talents. PTA will give you opportunity, not only to impact your local community, but to have input in major legislative and policy issues affecting children throughout the state. Membership gives you a voice. Exercise your right to vote. Get involved.
Why NOT Join???
Corbell students are ready to shine bright at school this year, and your PTA has been hard at work! But the PTA can’t accomplish anything without members! If you’re not sure about joining, read on…
I don’t know what the PTA really does.
FACT: Well, let’s start with the PTA’s Mission.
- A powerful voice for all children,
- A relevant resource for families and communities, and
- A strong advocate for the education and well-being of every child.
In short, the PTA exists to bring programs and resources to Corbell students and their families. How do we do this? The PTA collects dues from its members and conducts ONE fundraiser per year.
Can you imagine Corbell without all that?!?
I don’t have time to join the PTA.
FACT: Joining the PTA doesn’t have to mean volunteering. Sure, we value every minute our parents give to help our mission, but membership is also about being connected to a network of other parents and teachers who care about your child.
I don’t have any input in the PTA’s decisions.
FACT: All important decisions – especially concerning how money is spent – must be approved by the membership. PTA members have a voice IF they choose to use it! Members are invited to every PTA regular meeting and the agendas will be posted a few days prior to each meeting so members will know what is being discussed.
I’d like to get involved, but I don’t know how.
FACT: It just takes a little website workout!
