Meetings & Events

Join us at the next meeting…

…on Thursday, April 5 at 6:00 pm.

Every five years Parklawn PTA is required by Virginia PTA (VAPTA) to revise its bylaws. The bylaws serve as both a manual and set of rules to guide the operation of our PTA. Parklawn’s bylaws were last updated in 2012 and are therefore under review during the 2017-18 school year.
VAPTA requires approval of new bylaws by the general membership of the PTA. The proposed draft is attached in this email and will be posted on our website for 30 days, during which time PTA would appreciate hearing any comments or concerns from its members. We will vote to approve the bylaws at our April 5th meeting, which will be used for the next five years. You can email comments to or deliver them in writing to the school office, in care of PTA.
Please note:
  • PTA members will be asked to approve the entire set of bylaws in a single vote.
  • Language within sections of the bylaws preceded by a pound sign (#) is predetermined by VAPTA and cannot be changed, although members are free to provide comment.
  • Parklawn PTA amended four sections (lines 347, 541, 591, 592). These may be changed and members may comment on these sections as well.
Thank you for helping PTA complete this vital requirement.

General Membership Meetings

General Membership meetings are held several times throughout the year, often in conjunction with community events like Movie Night. 

  • Already a PTA member? General Membership meetings are a great way to connect with other parents, caregivers and community members, learn more about school events and activities, and find out how you can help Parklawn Elementary students thrive.
  • Not a PTA member yet?  Feel free to check out a General Membership meeting and learn what the Parklawn PTA is all about. Executive Board members will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
