I want each of you to feel that pride in this association. To feel that potential you possess. To look back at your achievements and to yearn to do more. PTA is not just a hobby to some. It’s a cause. It’s an instrument of change…a means to make things better for children and families in our community. I’m never at a lack of words when I talk about you. I’m filled with pride when I see your postings about backpack drives, clothes closets, family reading nights and donuts with dads. I know you’re making a difference. The more we share our stories and ideas, the more people will hear about the value of PTA and want to belong. Someone shared their story with you. Who will you share your story with today?
Membership is not just a one month campaign, or a slogan, or a contest for numbers. It represents the number of people who value what we value. The number of people we have shared our passion with. If you’ve never shared your PTA story, start by sharing it with me. I’d love to know why you do what you do. If you can tell me, well, that’s one down and who knows how many more to go!
Let’s make history!
