About PTA Membership
PTA is an organization made up of parents, teachers and members who have an interest in children, families and schools. PTA membership is as diverse as Texas in its cultures, education levels and parenting skills. By joining PTA, a member becomes part of the largest child advocacy organization in the state with over 500,000 members across Texas.
Who can join?
Parents, grandparents, educators and legislators, neighbors and community leaders are all essential members of the PTA family and provide a powerful and effective voice for all children.
Studies have shown that membership in PTA provides children with a greater chance of achieving success in school. As a PTA member, you are more likely to be an informed, involved parent. PTA funds programs that support children and families in all aspects of our daily lives. Whether it’s providing that special outlet for a child’s artistic creativity, educating youth on the importance of being good stewards of our planet, or helping to ensure that every child has the opportunity to grow up healthy and safe; PTA offers programs that allow students and families to reach their fullest potential.
What are the benefits of joining PTA?
• Access to weekly newsletters and news blasts about happenings at school

• Ability to help provide much needed classroom enrichment resources and guide their implementation
In addition, your membership card opens the door to business discounts and innumerable resources each time you log in to the Texas PTA website at www.txpta.org.
