The Ivy PTA (Parent & Teacher Association) is a 501(c) Non-Profit Organization whose mission is:
As members of the national PTA, The Ivy PTA is restricted in how we support the school. The PTA may support: community events, field trips, student enrichment, school beautification, classroom materials, professional development for staff and volunteer events. The PTA may not support salaries, financial investments on behalf of the school, facility rent, mortgage, utilities, or maintenance.
The PTA raises approximately $10,000 each year. PTA members vote on how to allocate those funds. Examples of fundraising events include: Chinook Book sales, the Monster Bowl, the Read & Write-a-thon, and the Spring raffle. The PTA also organizes community-building events, including campus improvement work parties and the whole family campout.
If you are an Ivy parent, guardian or family member interested in learning more about the work the PTA does on behalf of the school, you are always invited to attend PTA meetings. Meetings are open to anyone who would like to learn more about our activities. The time requirements for the PTA are relatively low, and more parent input, support and volunteer time is always needed.
