Why join PTA?


When you purchase a PTA membership through Shawnee Trail each year, you help provide educational and enrichment programs that delight Shawnee Trail kids! 







A voice for every child at Shawnee Trail

You also help provide advocacy. Every child at our school is worth supporting and protecting. So this year, our goal is to have one Shawnee Trail PTA member for every student enrolled at our school. We want to grow the kind of community influence needed to support EVERY student in our sphere of care —and help them reach their potential.  Children do not have the same power adults do. Which is why advocacy is such a big part of PTA’s mission. Learn more about advocacy here.





Everyone's #1 fear about joining PTA?

Will I will be forced to volunteer —
or go to meetings?


Nope!  Joining PTA does not commit you to "do" anything. It simply makes you a supporter of children at our school. You do NOT have to volunteer. You do NOT have to go to PTA meetings.  Although you are very welcome to do both—and we hope you will! :) Read about other PTA myths.
