A common question we hear is "What does the PTA do and why are they always trying to raise money?" The PTA's mission is: a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for the education and well-being of every child. But what does that really mean? We offer countless programs throughout the year to all the children of Little Tor that we would not otherwise be able to provide without the help and support of our families and community.
We encourage all of our Little Tor families, teachers, and staff to join our PTA. Your contribution allows benefits beyond compare. The Cultural Arts programs we bring to our school are educational AND fun! Your dues contribute to all our events including our Welcome Back BBQ, Family Fun Night, Founders' Day, Reflections, PARP, and our very famous Variety Show. We also honor two graduating high school seniors as past Little Tor students with scholarships in June. And it doesn't end there! There's just too much to list here!
As a member of Little Tor's PTA, you are eligible to receive our annual directory. Your membership dues are small ($10-20) in the scope of what we provide to your family and our community. And your membership in our PTA doesn't stop at Little Tor. You are also a member of the NY State and National PTA. For more information please visit: http://www.nyspta.org/.
PTA is an individual member association, which means we are an association of individuals who voluntarily join to support the work the PTA does. We offer two levels of membership that are meant to accommodate your family's lifestyle. They are as follows:
Individual Level: This level is open to a parent, grandparent, or any other adult family member who wishes to support our Little Tor PTA. Each individual member will receive a membership card and has the right to vote. A $10.00 donation entitles you to our individual level of membership.
Family Level: This level is open to the two parents of the student. You will receive two membership cards and it entitles you to two votes, costing just a $15.00 donation.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
