Our Purpose

The purpose of the Union PTA is the same as that of all PTAs:

  • To support and speak on behalf of children and youth in the schools, in the community, and before governmental bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children;
  • To assist parents in developing the skills they need to raise and protect their children;
  • To encourage parent and public involvement in the public schools of this nation.

 

Teamwork of Parents

In order to accomplish these goals, it requires the teamwork of parents, teachers and administrators within the school system.

The Union PTA comprises a PTA Council and PTA chapters at each school site, including a PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) at Union High School at the Union Alternative School.

The PTA Council oversees district wide programs that benefit all of the students through several programs including Clothing Closet, Catch the Dream, Meet the Masters, Reflections and Kids on the Block. The representatives from each site help ensure these programs are a success.

Benefits

The number one reason to join your PTA is to support your school and your students. PTA membership has benefits! Through your membership you can also receive exclusive offers and discounts!

National PTA teams up with businesses committed to supporting PTA’s mission of serving all children by offering our members special discounts, fundraising opportunities and other unique deals.

Each Union school site has a PTA unit that provides programs and teacher support at their school. The Union Council PTA sponsors the Union chess tournament, scholarships for graduating seniors, bus driver appreciation, Catch the Dream, and actively communicates with state legislators in regards to legislation that affects public schools.

Catch The Dream

Catch the Dream is a PTA Council-sponsored recognition program to honor outstanding staff members. Students at each school nominate staff members who have gone above and beyond their normal duties to be entered into a monthly drawing. The winners at each site are in turn entered into a monthly district drawing to be recognized by the entire district.​
