Dear Parents, Students, Faculty, & Friends,
IVA PTA invites you to join us as we make a positive difference in the education and the quality of life for all children. We realize how important your children are to you and that you want the best for them. PTA can help you achieve that goal.
Please know that your support of the IVA PTA, through membership, is critical to our success and the success of many programs we offer your children. Our goal is to have 100% participation. This means we would like to have at least one member per student. As an incentive, if we reach our goal of 90% or higher we will be giving a pizza party for the kids.
ANYONE can be a member: teachers, school administrators, students, parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, friends, and even neighbors! The more members we have, the stronger our voice will be. We invite you to join the IVA PTA and make a difference. YOU can enrich the lives of our IVA students. Our dues are $8 per person. A portion of the membership fee goes to support and advocate for children on the state and national level. PTA is a national movement and is the largest non-profit organization that advocates on behalf of ALL children by providing parent resources and legislative power to support youth throughout our Country. Your membership helps ensure our childrenâ€™s voices are heard. You can join PTA by filling out the attached envelope and include the dues, either in cash, or check made out to IVA PTA. Every PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your membership is tax deductible. You might have children in other schools and we encourage you to join each school.
Just because you paid your membership doesnâ€™t mean you have to go to the meetings. We need your support. Through PTA, we would like to raise funds for our field trips. We have a 2 fall and spring field trips planned. Our first field trip is November 5 and 6. We need to provide transportation for these trips. A bus costs approximately $500. For this year, we would really like to raise funds to cover the costs of the bus. Our long term goal is to have lockers for all 150 students.
Another piece of information, when you fill out your envelope to join, on the back of the envelope is spot that you can make an additional donation amount to go towards field trips costs.
On behalf of IVA PTA, we thank you for helping to make a difference in the education experience at IVA!
