WHAT IS THE PTA?
PTA stands for Parent Teacher Association. It is a national organization that advocates and promotes family involvement within the school system. On a local level, the Quarterfield PTA helps to organize and fund activities that improve the overall environment for our teachers and students. Our efforts include providing volunteer support for school-wide events and sponsoring activities that make Quarterfield Elementary School an enjoyable place to attend. Past initiatives have included providing reimbursements to teachers for classroom purchases, raising funds for SMART Boards, hosting movie nights, and co-sponsoring events to increase and improve family engagement.
HOW DO I VOLUNTEER AT QES?
The PTA works closely with the Volunteer Coordinator who ensures that volunteers meet the requirements set forth by the county for both one-time activities and long-term volunteer commitments. Quarterfield Elementary School is fortunate to have Ms. Kristine Nellenbach, our Library Media Specialist, as our Volunteer Coordinator for the 2018-2019 school year. She will be sending home a volunteer interest form at the beginning of the school year. For details, e-mail her at email@example.com
JOIN THE PTA!
We encourage all parents, guardians, and adult family members to become an official member of the Quarterfield PTA. Joining is easy! Simply fill out one membership form per household and send $7 for dues (e.g. two adults in the same household who want to join would send $14, three adults send $21, etc.). The money helps the PTA pay for activities throughout the year. Membership Drives are held during monthly meetings.
