Why Join North Lake Parent-Teacher-Student Association?

  

​The #1 reason to join the PTSA is to support your child and your child’s school community. PTSA is an organization dedicated to the youth of this school, community, and nation. North Lake Middle School PTSA supports our families through a variety of programs including: art, reading, math, computer equipment, and other critical supplies.

 

Joining PTSA is a significant contribution to our school community!

 

Parents, relatives, teachers and neighbors are all welcome and encouraged to join North Lake PTSA.

We are a guilt-free membership (You do not have to attend meetings and no volunteer hours are required).

Business Partner Sponsorship

  

Businesses are welcome to sponsor PTSA as a Business Partner. When you sponsor the North Lake PTSA as a business member with an annual sponsorhsip of $35, you help our local PTSA, Washington State PTA, and National PTA. A PTSA sponsorship provides businesses with visibility and recognition while increasing cooperation among schools, businesses, and the community. When customers see that you are a PTSA sponsor, they know your business cares about our children’s education and well-being. Your business will be displayed on our Business Sponsor Banner on the Student Store, listed on our facebook page, webpage, and as often as possible in our printed or emailed newsletters.

Membership Myth-busters

 

There are four major misconceptions about PTSA membership. These falsehoods often prevent parents

from joining an association that helps our children.



​Myth #1: “Only moms and teachers need to join PTSA.”

A strong, vibrant PTSA needs the support of moms and dads, step-parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, teachers and school staff, community members,

and business leaders. Anyone who cares about children belongs in PTSA. It is important that we all have a voice in the decision-making process relating

to the laws and regulations – whether in the schools or government – that affect children.



Myth #2: “Joining PTSA means I have to volunteer.”

You do not have to volunteer to be a member of PTSA! PTSA appreciates everyone’s membership, whether or not a member volunteers, because each

member increases PTSA’s ability to advocate for children.



Myth #3: “PTSA membership never expires – I only have to join once.”

Each new school year begins a new PTSA membership year. Membership cards are issued to each member who joins PTSA as soon as dues are paid.

Membership cards are for an annual membership and will remain valid until the end of the school year.



Myth #4: “I don’t have the time to join PTSA.”

We understand your time is valuable. However, it’s your interest in children that counts. If you are not able to support the PTSA with time, please become

a member and give your financial support so that the children know that you support our efforts. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that your support

helps as we develop programs and activities that benefit not only your children, but all children.
