The value of PTA
It’s the time of year where we are looking for members who would be interested in becoming officers of the Jackson High School PTSA. At the end of this school year, we will hopefully be transitioning from outgoing officers to those coming in. But why would you want to take on a role with PTA? What does PTA bring to Jackson?
What would Jackson High School look like without PTA?
No planners for students
No SAT prep classes
No outside speakers or presentations
No money for community programs
No welcome gift bags for new students
No new parent orientation
No Reflections Art Contest
No summer info packets
No school and classroom grants (over $10,000 was granted last year)
No grants for counselors
No funding for JHS recognition (Honor Roll, student awards, etc.)
No community support (Operation School Bell, Shoe Fund, etc.)
No volunteers for school events
No Wolf Tracks newsletters
No Staff Appreciation
Our mission and goals was created with students, families and the Jackson community in focus.
