We're always looking for new ways to support our Belvedere community!
Why Should I Join the PTA?
For your children of course! Research shows that getting involved in your child's education helps your child succeed at school. A terrific way to stay connected with Belvedere is by joining the PTA. PTA members share opinions and information with other parents, teachers, and the administration. We are part of a strong voice speaking for our children's education.
Time Commitment - Some parents are concerned that joining the PTA will stretch their already-chaotic schedules. Don't worry. Meetings are held once a month and seldom last beyond an hour. PTA members are encouraged but not required to attend. We treasure our volunteers, but we will never ask our members for more time than they are willing to give. Meaningful PTA involvement does not have to be time consuming. If you have no extra time to give, you can help by donating supplies of one of our many school activities, providing ideas for new programs, etc.
Dues - PTA dues are only $10 a year. A small portion of those proceeds go to the National and State PTA, but most of the dues stay in the Belvedere Community. Annual dues give you access to the Members-Only National PTA website which is a great source of information on legislative issues affecting children, parenting articles, and other resources. The National PTA Member Benefit Program offers discounts to PTA members from Barnes & Noble, FedEX Kinko's and more.
