    Parkside PTA Officers


    pat board 2019

    Parkside is lucky to have an active Parent Teacher Association. Our main role is to build strong working relationships between parents and teachers in support of our students. Last year, we raised a significant amount of money for Parkside through our Fall Festival, monthly bake sales, annual Parkside Stride 5K Fun Run, book fairs, and other fundraisers. We use these funds to support great projects, like this year’s school supply purchase and general teacher needs.

    We need you to be involved! Watch out for the date of our first PTA meeting, which will be announced through school newsletters and on our Facebook parent group. The meetings typically occur on Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. Find out how you can get involved, including joining one of our committees and becoming a room parent.

PTAs normally meet once a month. Through PTA initiatives and activities, parents work with the faculty to enhance the school environment and improve student achievement.
