PTA Membership Benefits

In addition to supporting your school, did you know that your PTA membership can save you money? There is a Members Only section on the national PTA website -www.PTA.org. The back of your PTA membership card has the username and password to access this area. For example, you could save on purchases at Staples (10% on supplies, 25% on copy & print and more). Go to the www.PTA.org website to get full details for these and other offers.  

You can also get discounts through the Virginia PTA - check out http://vapta.org/members-only/benefits-and-discounts.html  for more information.

Our annual Food Drive, renamed Make Hunger Disappear (in the spirit of Halloween), is underway and goes through October 31st.  All food collected goes to FeedMore, Central Virginia's food bank.  If this year's total collection reaches our goal of 500 pounds or more, the students will get to enjoy a "Wear Your PJ's to School" Day.  

Through Thursday the 23rd, we have collected almost 100 pounds.  We only have a week left and we have far to go.  Please help support this worthy cause.
