WHY JOIN THE PTA?
- The PTA provides funds to Ashley Falls school beyond
what the state provides. This additional funding ensures
our children are getting an extraordinary school
experience. Your contribution to the Ashley Falls PTA
directly benefits your child's education.
- PTA funds provide classroom mini-grants to our teachers, which help ensure our teachers have all needed supplies to support their curriculum.
- PTA funds also provide for a variety of school-based programs and community building events (please see the programs page for more info). The PTA has also regularly made a substantial "gift to school" to support teaching and learning at Ashley Falls
WHO SHOULD JOIN THE PTA?
You!! Our goal is for every Ashley Falls family to be members of the PTA. We want 100% participation! Every contribution makes a difference!
HOW ARE THINGS DIFFERENT THIS YEAR? WILL THE PTA SUPPORT LAUNCH TEACHERS & STUDENTS AS WELL AS IN-PERSON?
During this year of uncertainty, the PTA will operate as close to normal as possible. While many of our usual events and programs will not be able to operate this year, we will continue to be dedicated to meeting the needs of Ashley Falls teachers and students. We will continue to provide funding for classroom mini-grants as well as any other expenses we may be able to assist with in order to provide an extraordinary school experience for ALL of our students. We support ALL our teachers, students and families, whether they are in our in-person or Launch program. We are also exploring ideas for virtual and/or socially distant events to promote the community we love so deeply at Ashley Falls!
IF I JOIN, WHAT WILL I HAVE TO DO?!
Nothing!! Members have no obligation to volunteer, attend meeting, etc.! While volunteers are vital to the PTA and the programs we fund, we understand not everyone has the time or desire to volunteer. And that's ok! Your membership donation is important to fund our community and school based programs. And if you are interested in getting more involved, there are tons of volunteer opportunities too! Plus your membership gives you the right to vote on how funds are being used, among other things, at our general association meetings.
ARE THE PTA AND DMSEF (aka THE FOUNDATION) THE SAME?
No. Your DMSEF contribution goes to the school district to help pay for our STEAM+ teachers' salaries. DMSEF and PTA donations are used differently (but both important!).
WHEN SHOULD I DONATE?
Donations are accepted throughout the year. However donating during our Giving Campaign (ends October 30th) will provide you with lots of goodies and benefits! We hope you will consider giving at the Eagle level or above, however ALL contributions will help us reach our goals! Please visit our "Join The PTA" page to find out more about membership levels and options!
