What is a PTA Council and what do we do?
- The Frontier PTA Council’s main job is to support the district units. We provide an opportunity for the units to talk, share ideas, work through any issues, and act as a liaison to district officials.
- As a chartered PTA we work together with Western district, NYS and National PTA to accomplish our mission to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. We accomplish this with collaboration, commitment, diversity, respect, and accountability.
- The council is built up of, and represents, the Frontier districts 6 amazing units. These units consist of the Frontier High School, Frontier Middle School, Blasdell Elementary, Cloverbank Elementary, Big Tree Elementary, and Pinehurst Elementary.
- Our role is to inform, advise, guide, instruct and encourage the leaders of local units and to be responsive to their needs for conferences, leadership training, and coordination of efforts of the member PTAs.
- PTA helps your child succeed. More than 30 years’ worth of research has proven that children do better when their parents are involved both at home and at school.
- PTA connects you with the school community. There’s no better way to know what is happening in your school than by being a part of the PTA. You’ll find out what you can do to make a difference for your child.
- PTA is America’s number one resource for parent involvement. PTA has tips on helping your child with homework, advice for preparing for parent-teacher conferences, how-tos for working with teachers all year long and much more. PTA has resources to help you and your child at all stages – from early childhood education to life after high school.
- PTA has the nation’s largest parent, teacher, student network that supports you and your child throughout their school career. PTA functions are opportunities to meet others and discuss issues of importance in your school community. The PTA community is large, with 23,000 local units around the country supported by state PTAs and National PTA – all working toward the common goal of helping children.
- By volunteering with your PTA, you can put your skills to good use to benefit your child’s education and the school.
- As a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on their education and school experience.
