PTA invites all Palomar Parents to join.  Here are just a few reasons why:

1.  BENEFIT YOUR CHILD - Research shows that children get better grades, do better on tests and have fewer discipline problems when the parents are involved.

2.  GET CONNECTED - There is no better way to know what’s happening at school.  Also, you can take advantage of all the resources available for your children and for you as parents.

3.  BE A ROLE MODEL - Lead by example!  There is no better way to show your child the importance you place on education.

4.  SHARE YOUR CONCERNS - Parents can create friendship bonds, like getting help from upper grade parents who have already experienced what lower grade parents are going through.

5.  WIN A COMMUNITY - PTA connects you to other parents and teachers through meetings, events and communications, thereby building a strong community.  You can meet someone to help you carpool!  Our schedules get pretty tight sometimes, but that doesn’t mean your kids can’t have fun.  Count on other parents to help you and allow your children to enjoy fun activities!!

6.  TAP INTO A NETWORK - PTA not only proves beneficial for students, but for parents as well.  You can find out what you have in common with other parents.  You might discover a good fitness partner or someone who enjoys the same hobbies you do.

7.  MAKE A DIFFERENCE – Get your voice heard!  Bring your ideas!!  Help us address our concerns and work on our weak points.  Help us get all of the resources available for our children.
