The purpose of the Underwood Elementary PTA is to enhance and support the educational experiences and develop a close connection between school, home and the community by encouraging parental involvement, and improving the environment at Underwood Elementary through volunteer and financial support.
The benefits of membership are primarily for the students of Underwood Elementary. Membership is one of the foundations of funding that allows our PTA to thrive. Our active and generous membership enables UWE PTA to provide many resources to the students and staff of Underwood Elementary that are outside the scope of the school budget.
By becoming a member of the PTA, you are supporting the mission and purpose of our organization, which is to provide our students and staff with great experiences while at Underwood Elementary. A PTA membership does not mean volunteer responsibilities. We LOVE our volunteers and appreciate all that they do, but you will not be expected to volunteer with your membership.
During the month of the September, the PTA will be sponsoring a Membership Drive in conjunction with supporting our Underwood teachers. We all know that our teachers use a lot of their own money on classroom materials. So, the classroom teacher with the most PTA memberships by September 30th will earn $50 to use towards his/her classroom. The second runner up will earn $30, and the third runner up will earn $20. All memberships purchased from the beginning of the year through September 30th will count towards the Membership Drive Competition!
You can use the button above to complete your membership online. You are also can send a check payable to UWE PTA to school with your student. Please place the check in an envelope with the following information: parent's name, student's name, and teacher, so that we can be sure that it counts towards the drive.
