What other parents are saying...
Initially, I was very apprehensive about joining the PTA. I didn't understand the PTA's objective and I didn't know exactly it was that the PTA was doing to benefit MY children. I would think to myself, "Another fundraiser? Doesn't the county provide enough funds for our children? Why is the PTA always trying to collect money?". One night, a friend talked me into going to a PTA meeting and boy was I shocked! The PTA does A LOT for my children- a lot more than I ever realized. Computers, books, school events, teacher's supplies, and much much more, are all obtained by funds raised by our school's PTA. I finally saw how vital the PTA is to Carney and that the county provides only the bare necessities. The PTA truly needs our support and I would urge anyone to go to just one meeting, so that you too, will see just how much the PTA needs EVERY parent's support!
