Why join PTA?

The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child. Many studies show that when a parent gets involved in their child’s school community children do better in school. In doing so, you also help the entire Abingdon community. But there are many more PTA advantages:

  • Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening here at AES.

  • Discover Great Resources. The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.

  • Tap into a Network. PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind.

  • Share your skills. By volunteering with our PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a great cause—your child and all students at AES.

  • Your voice can be heard. PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at AES. 

  • Witness Improvement. By getting involved at AES you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. Our PTA plays an important role through advocacy and fundraising to support students and teachers inside and outside of the classroom as well as providing social events where the school community can come together and connect. 

  • Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on their education.

  • Member Perks - Virginia and National PTA offer benefits and perks to members. Please visit www.vapta.org and www.pta.org for more information.

Everyone—parents, educators, students and other citizens active in their schools and communities—is invited to join our Parent Teacher Association.
