PTA Cultural Arts - TeePee Ted
TeePee Ted is a favorite PTA funded cultural arts program! Our 4th graders got to have a fun filled hands on experience learning about Native American life and culture with Teepee Ted. They shared their learnings with the 3rd graders and their families.
Your Child Needs You!
Join with us to make a difference in the education and quality of life for our children. Children learn more and have better lives when parents, school, faculty, students and the community work together. PTA brings all these groups together to share thoughts, ideas, and activities that benefit children. Our cultural arts programs and school events are funded by your support. PTA Membership needs to be renewed each year. The cost is $10 for individual membership or $15 for both parents. Joining the PTA does not obligate you to volunteer. Your membership contribution is just as important.
