Welcome back-to-school! It’s the most wonderful time of year for PTA! The beginning of the school year is an unofficial holiday season with new schedules, endless supplies, cool outfits, innovative lesson plans and fun activities.
Over 55 million students across the country are back in the school groove with teachers and parent leaders who are working hard to create the most inspiring experiences inside and outside the classroom to bring out the best in every student.
We are committed to making the 2018-2019 school year a huge success for you. That’s why we have collaborated with Office Depot OfficeMax, our presenting sponsor, to make sure you get a great start.
