All PAWS on deck!Join us to keep Crossroads Elementary the best it can be! The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a great place to get involved in your students education. It shows your children that school matters. Our PAWS have been able to support many programs and events last year including field trips, classroom materials, Family Event Nights, TK/Kindergarten sandbox, Jog-a-thon, Shade Structure and more. But without key players like you joining none of this is possible. Meetings are held the monthly (see schecdule). Support your Student, become INVOLVED... Join the PTA! PTA Membership is open throughout the year, and YOU are needed! Stay informed and stay connected by joining the incredible PTA at Crossroads.
Other ways to help! Attend the Association Meeting! With your membership you are able to vote on how the PTA use the funds raised through our many events and programs. Volunteer your time. Did you know that if each parent volunteered at least 3 hours a school year, all events would be sufficiently covered and an amazing success? Each program or event requires a Chairman and Committee, they are in charge of the planning and implementaion of the event. There are also oppurtunites to be on the Board. Please remember that being a member of the PTA is showing your support! You are not required to do anything else! If you choose to attend a meeting, it does give you a voice in what programs and events are funded by the PTA. If you have the passion and time to take on a larger role please let us know.
