Membership

When you join Lowell Elementary PTA, you join a community that encourages student achievement and believes in building partnerships between families and school; together we can make a difference.  Anyone can join the PTA: parents, grand-parents, aunts and uncles. We encourage EVERYONE to get involved. 

Lowell PTA supports...

  • Extracurricular & Family Fun Activities—such as the Science Fair and Round Up.
  • Exposure to Theater Arts--though Mount Baker Theater field trips. 
  • Teachers—each teacher receives a PTA grant for classroom supplies and field trips.
  • Outdoor Education
  • Enrichment—administering and offsetting the cost of after school classes.
  • Technology—supplemental technology and tools that fall outside district budgets 
  • Fundraising—How to pay for it all? Our annual Jog-a-thon fundraiser brought in over $17,500 last year to support PTA programs and school needs. PTA also manages ongoing fundraising like SCRIP & Box-Tops.

But there are many more general PTA advantages, not unique to Lowell.

Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.

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. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences.

Watch Yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause—your child and all children in the community.

Speak Up. PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school. Be part of the solution, help make positive changes. 
Membership dues also support our state and national PTA Organizations for child and youth legislative representation providing a voice to larger issues affecting all school communities.

Be a Role Model. Demonstrate to your child the importance you place on education.

Enjoy Substantial Benefits. Individuals and local units can take advantage of membership benefits including discounts and offers from benefit providers and sponsors, magazine subscriptions, leadership training, e-newsletters and much more.
