The mission of the PTSA is three-fold

  • To support and speak on behalf of children and youth in the schools, in the community, and before government agencies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children.
  • To assist parents in developing the skills they need to raise and protect their children.
  • To encourage parent and public involvement in the public schools.
