The Stratford Landing PTA contributes to our school in many different ways, including:
Funding: The PTA Funds field trips, community building events, assemblies, the Discovery Garden, classroom technology, playground upgrades, the Care & Share program, teacher and staff appreciation, volunteer appreciation, library funding, Field Day, and the safety patrol program.
Fundraising: In order to fund all of these wonderful events the PTA must act as a fundraiser and coordinate events such as our Spring Fling, Rock n’ Run and Box Tops. The PTA organizes all after school activities that our children enjoy. We coordinate with the Administration to bring new classes, secure club locations and register students.
Communication: We strive to better communication between the Administration, Teachers, and Parents. The PTA communicates with Parents and Teachers through weekly emails, Facebook, our Web Site, Whisk Home Wednesday folders, Keep in Touch (KIT) messages, and PTA meetings.
Care & Share: We work with the school Guidance Counselors to identify families that require assistance such as back to school supplies, Thanksgiving dinner, holiday gifts, clothing, and after school programs.
Teacher & Volunteer Training and Development: The PTA provides funding and guidance to help teachers pay for and locate outside training and development opportunities to enhance their performance in the classroom. In addition we provide the opportunity for volunteers to attend training to better provide assistance in the classrooms.
Military Family Support Group: We provide military families a place to connect and offer support to new military families entering Stratford Landing. We are an all inclusive group to all active, retired, reserve, deceased military families or anyone that has an interest in the purpose of our group. We help our school observe military focused events, like Veterans Day and Month of the Military Child and organize a farewell dinner for our outgoing military families. We also work to help ease the transition stress for the military child. Quarterly meeting information will be communicated via the PTA website and FB page.
The PTA coordinates many other activities within Stratford Landing such as coordination of Room Parents, stuffing of Wednesday folders, and coordination of appreciation activities.
