Who wants to see Ms. Duvall and Dr. Branch duct-taped to the wall?!?

Alright Dinos, the Dodd PTA needs your help! Our membership goal this year is 360 new and returning members by October 28. If we meet that goal, Ms. Duvall and Dr. Branch have made the generous offer of allowing themselves to be duct-taped to the wall! We think that might look a little something like this:

Duct Tape

C’mon now Dinos, we have to make that happen!!

If seeing our principals duct-taped to a wall isn’t enough, below is a list of reasons from the National PTA website (http://www.pta.org/about/content.cfm?ItemNumber=3289) why you should join the PTA.

What is PTA? Why join PTA? The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more PTA advantages:

  • Get Connected. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
  • Discover Great Resources. The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
  • Tap into a Network. PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind. You can share ideas, concerns, and experiences.
  • Watch Yourself Grow. By volunteering with your PTA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause—your child and all children in the community.
  • Speak Up. PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
  • Witness Improvement. By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. Local PTAs play an important role by supporting building improvements through advocacy and play an important role in fundraising for curriculum based programs and social events.
  • Be a Role Model. By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
  • Enjoy Substantial Benefits. Individuals and local units can take advantage of a host of benefits from PTA membership including discounts and offers from member benefits providers and sponsors, magazine subscriptions, leadership training, e-newsletters and much more.

And there are other benefits to you as well.  Texas PTA has a whole list of companies that give PTA members discounts, including Six Flags, Great Wolf Lodge, and our Texas Rangers!  You can access these membership benefits here: http://www.txpta.org/my-pta/member-benefits/.

Parents, grandparents, friends, neighbors, and even our kiddos themselves are all welcome to join.  And Dodd students who join up will be given their own special benefits this year.

Seems like a pretty good deal for only $8.00 per membership!  The easiest way to join is at http://www.joinpta.org/.  Just choose Texas, Wylie ISD, and Dodd Elementary and pay with a credit card.  Or send the form below with a check or cash back to school with your student.
