Why we have a PTA
PTA is a grassroots organization made up of parents, teachers, and community leaders who have an interest in the well-being of children and youth in our school and community.
Every student is valuable! PTA provides a way to support students day-to-day in meaningful ways, and also to advocate for kids in government. By joining the Shawnee Trail PTA, you become part of the largest child advocacy organization in Texas—with over 500,000 members—and have input in major legislative and policy issues affecting children throughout the state. Kids do not have the same power adults do, which is why it's so important that you have a voice for Texas kids!
Do I have to volunteer or attend meetings?
No. Volunteering and meetings are optional. (Out-of-state members would find this impossible anyway.) But if you CAN help from time to time, you'll set a fine example for our students.
Any human, regardless of where you live, can join Shawnee Trail PTA. Parents, students, grandparents, business owners, friends, etc. (Businesses cannot, although business owners can.) Memberships are good for the current school year (Aug 1-July 31).
If you want to join 3 or more Frisco PTAs you can do so through Frisco Council of PTAs —and receive special recognition!
