What is the PTA?

The National PTA is the largest parent involvement organization in the U.S. comprised of millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders with a primary goal to promote the welfare of children and youth in the community, create a close relationship between home and school, and develop the strongest educational experience for all children.

Do I have to be a member of the PTA to get involved?

Being active at your children’s school can actually help them to be a better student. While there are benefits to being a member of the PTA, the Wake Robin PTA offers many ways for families to get involved and be active.

Why does it cost for a membership?

Dues go toward local projects as well as creating resources and advocacy efforts with the Nebraska PTA and National PTA.

What is the cost of membership?

The cost for membership is $8 for one person, $12 for family, which consists of two memberships. We also offer a $25 business membership.
