What is PTSA?
PTSA is comprised of parents, teachers, students and other adults that are devoted to the educational success of children and promoting parental involvement in schools.  PTSA is a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for the education and well-being of EVERY child.  We partner with the school and community.  Cooper Middle School PTSA is honored and proud to be part of such a great organization!                                                                                                                                            

Why Join PTSA?
·       The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Student Association is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more advantages. Here are just a few:
·       Get Connected.  There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
·       Discover Great Resources.  The PTSA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
·       Tap into a Network.  Parenting is not easy—it helps to share ideas, concerns and experiences with other parents and educators in the community. PTSA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind.
·       Watch Yourself Grow.  By volunteering with your PTSA, you gain valuable experiences. It’s an opportunity to put your skills and hobbies to good use for a good cause—your child and all children in the community.
·       Speak Up.  Because the PTSA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions. PTSA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
·       Witness Improvement.  By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. Local PTSAs play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs, and social events—all vital to a school’s success.
·       Be a Role Model.  By becoming a PTSA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
·       Enjoy Benefits. You receive discounts from our community partner’s nationwide.
·       Volunteer your time.  Any time you can give makes a difference whether it’s an hour a month or an hour a day every little bit counts.  Sometimes you can even do all of your volunteer work from the comforts of your home.  If every family volunteers just 3 hours per school year, there is nothing we cannot accomplish.

I Don’t Have Time To Volunteer, Should I Still Join?
·       Joining the Cooper MS PTSA will not commit you to long hours of volunteering.
Joining PTA is simply a statement that you support what the PTSA does here at Cooper on behalf of the students.
   We are excited about working with parents, staff and students this year and are looking forward to hearing from YOU. If you have any questions, are interested in a committee or have any suggestions/ideas please email us at Coopermsptsa@gmail.com Remember, our school is as great as we make it.
