PTA was established as an advocate for students. PTA’s mission is to “Build a Better World for our Children.” Thoreau PTA does this by providing enrichment programs, community events, parenting classes, classroom enrichment, and health & safety measures.

How does the PTA accomplish all this? WITH YOUR HELP! Thoreau’s PTA raises money to support these programs with fundraisers and runs the committees with parent volunteers.
