PTSA Membership Drive
The PTSA (Parent-Teacher-Student-Association) is a private, non-profit organization of parents, teachers, students and community members who strive to better the lives of children. We are part of an association that is organized at the local, state and national levels. Our focus is to support and speak on behalf of children and youth in schools, in the community and before governmental bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting our children.
Your membership to the Washington PTSA does the above, plus allows our PTSA to have events for our students, plus provide items that the school needs that are not allows budgeted by the EVSC.
Student members receive one free dress day per grading period, along with free entrance to all 3 dances, and ice cream day per grading period, a coupon book designed just for them with great discounts for PTSA sponsored events.
Individual memberships are $7.00, a double membership for $12.50, 3 memberships for $18.00, and a family 4 pack for $25.00. The PTSA only keeps $1.75 of each membership sold. The remaining amount of $5.25 goes to the Indiana PTA dues, and the National PTA dues.
So while we advocate for students when needed, we also do some fundraisers. The goal this year is to help the school purchase a new projection system and screen for the auditorium. In order to do this, we are fundraising, we are having restaurant give back nights, we are doing Yankee Candle Sales, and a few others coming up. So please support your PTSA, and join today.
