PTA News


Since we are unable to have the "big" PTA meeting we decided to send out some PTA news! We want you involved! Please join PTA and the Invest Program!

Verner Investment Program (VIP) 2021-22

VIP is the official fundraiser for the Verner Elementary Parent Teacher Association . VIP donations make it possible for our PTA to focus on helping Verner students GROW and reach their full potential in the classroom and beyond. Instead of raising money through traditional fundraisers and door-to-door sales, we ask that each family invest $150 per child to the Verner PTA. This money is used to provide essential services and materials that enhance the education of our students. The State of Alabama and the Board of Education no longer provides funds for these items. Verner continues to provide a first class education because of support from parents like you!

VIP allows PTA to provide: classroom computers and technology, library aide, teacher appreciation and support, art and music support, playground maintenance, library books, nurse supplies, teacher copier, Accelerated Reader Program and reading awards, character student of the month and student of the month and so much more!

You may join using cash, check or Venmo. The Venmo for PTA is @vernerelementarypta

School T-Shirts

Verner T-shirts are now on sale now for $16! You may purchase a Verner shirt for students to wear for field trips, class functions, and school spirit Fridays.

T-shirt forms were sent home with students. You may purchase a t-shirt by check, cash, or Venmo.


PTA needs volunteers to help in different areas. Forms were sent home with students. We appreciate any and all volunteers!

Verner Beautification Day

In the near future PTA will be hosting a beautification day to help with improvements around the school. Please be on the look out for information about our Verner Beautification Day! We will need volunteers to come out an help!

Stock the Teacher's Lounge

Many of the days have been taken but if you are able to help stock the lounge any week and any day please bring your treats/drinks to the front office for the lounge. It will be helpful to sign up but anytime you are able to help stock the lounge the teachers will love it! The teachers have enjoyed having a pick me up during the day! All of the teachers have said how much they appreciate this!
