DP Morris PTA 2022-23:

Welcome to a new academic year!
PTA stands for Parent Teacher Association. This means that parents, teachers, and community members work together to make every child’s potential a reality.

What does the PTA do?
Our goal is to enhance students’ education by hosting family events, subsidizing grade level field trips, making improvements in our school’s classrooms and grounds, and fostering communication between faculty and parents. We do this through fundraising and volunteering.

Who can join the PTA?
Anyone. Parents, guardians, family, friends, teachers, community members, and businesses can all join or make donations to help schools in the community. The goal is for every student to have a voice advocating for them.
