How to Join (It’s easy!)

Membership dues for the 2017-2018 school year start at $8.

Purchase your membership online by selecting the type of membership you would like and entering your email address and child's name and class. This information will be sued to send your PTA membership card. Click the "buy now" button and you will be taken to a secure PayPal website to complete your transaction.

Purchasing your membership DOES NOT obligate you to volunteer. Membership cards will be sent to you in your child’s Take-Home Folder within a week.
