What is the Azalea PTA?
The Azalea PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is a non-profit organization which serves to support the students, teachers and staff at Azalea Elementary. The number one reason to join the PTA is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school.
Who can join the PTA? Everyone! Families, teachers, administrators, staff, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, even businesses can join the PTA.
How do I join the PTA? Just complete the membership form (attached) and return it to school with your $5 dues. Membership does not require that you attend PTA meetings. However, only paid members can vote on budget changes and board members. Without an approved budget or an elected board we cannot survive!
PTA General Meetings are held 3-4 times a year. Everyone is welcome to attend and take part in meeting discussions and activities.
In addition to our general meetings, the PTA also hosts many fun annual events held throughout the school year open to all Azalea families. Please see the PTA 2018-2019 Calendar of Events (attached) and Save the Dates!

How do we do it all? With your help, of course!
As you can see Azalea PTA does a LOT of great stuff, but we need a LOT of help do it all! We encourage each of you to consider volunteering. There are many ways you can help: assisting in the classroom, serve as class parent, work on projects from home, support our fundraiser/make a direct donation, and donate time or goods at one of our many evening events. There are many worthwhile ways to step up and get involved! The more our families get involved the more successful and enriched our school becomes. Please share your talents and time with us whenever and however you can!
