Membership Benefits

Why Join the PTA?

Here Are the Top Three Reasons!

  1. The #1 reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child.  In doing so, you also help our school.   More than 30 years of research has proven that children do better when their parents are involved both at home and in school.  Grades are higher.  Test scores rise.  Self-esteem grows.  Schools improve.
  2. Every membership counts!  When you join the Greenwood PTA, you also join the Maryland state and national PTA and become part of a national effort to improve the education, health, and welfare of every child. Membership numbers count in a significant way when our representatives are lobbying for funding for education in the Maryland legislature or in Congress.
  3. PTA membership helps you connect with the school, the staff, and other parents and gives you a voice in deciding the direction of the Greenwood PTA.  Only members can vote on PTA issues and hold a PTA office.

Your membership card offers you valuable member benefits, discounts and resources to help you get involved in improving childrens health, welfare, and education.

Joining the PTA does not obligate you to volunteer at school or attend PTA meetings—although we hope you will!  It’s easy to join, and you can become a member at any time during the school year!
