Join PTA

Welcome to PTA!

Please see our 2017-18 Welcome Letter.

The PPES-PTA is a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are dedicated to the successful education of our children. The PTA works hard to help make the school year enjoyable and exciting for students, teachers, and parents. This year, we’re offering many of the same programs as in previous years, with a focus on simplifying and streamlining programs to ensure your time and donations are well spent.

What does PTA do?

Last year, the PTA organized over fifteen events including the Fall Fun Festival, Science Fair, Spelling Bee, Teacher Appreciation, RWE Exchange, and the Used Book Fair. The fall Fun Run raised over $40,000 last year which provided funding for many enrichment activities like language arts materials, STEM enrichment curriculum, playground equipment, and educational programs.
