How to Join
To join the PTA, click here for a printable PTA Membership form (also available in Spanish). Place your completed form and dues payment (cash or check) in a sealed envelope marked “Parklawn PTA.” The envelope can be given to your child’s teacher or turned in at the Main Office.
A PTA membership card will then be sent to each new member. Bring your membership card to each PTA-hosted event to receive free members-only perks (an extra raffle ticket, a toy for your child, a Popsicle, etc.).
Congratulations to our Membership Drive Contest winners!
The PTA’s membership drive contest concluded on October 14th, with a total of 157 members! As the grade with the most PTA members, Kindergarten earned a dance party. Ms. Compher’s 3rd grade class was awarded $50 in Scholastic books and a visit from a mystery reader for achieving the highest percentage of members (86%!). Faculty teams are still competing; teams with 100% membership will be entered in a raffle for a $100 gift card.
