The evidence is in. When schools and families work together to support learning, everyone benefits: students do better in school and in life; parents become empowered; teacher morale improves; schools get better; and, communities grow stronger.

Parents, grandparents, educators and legislators, neighbors and community leaders: you are all essential members of the PTA family and provide a powerful and effective voice for all children. Our future leaders, innovators, citizens and soldiers are our children, and our children are given their best chance to succeed when we all work together. Join us and get involved with the largest volunteer child advocacy group in the country.

ARTS DAY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

arts dayDance Around the World Arts Day will take place on Friday, March 9th. Arts Day is a performance arts festival of multiple acts that include artists, dancers and musicians that perform for our students. It’s a wonderful way for our pioneers to get a taste of what makes Austin such a great city!

The Arts in Education Committee is currently seeking volunteers to help make this event a success. Arts Day is a super fun opportunity to volunteer and see some great entertainment at the same time! Parent volunteers are needed for everything from hosting and escorting performers around our campus, delivering sack lunches to the classrooms, and working sound, to name just a few. A full listing of volunteer opportunities (including position descriptions) as well as the sign-up link can be found here.  This event is a team effort and we appreciate any and all help you can give.

If you have any questions about Arts Day or volunteer opportunities, please feel free to email the Arts in Education Chair Elexa Hernandez Martinez.
