One of the advantages of being a PTA is having both a state and a national organization to help provide resources and tools to make your job as a PTA leader easier. National PTA has recently released two new resources to help you recruit new membersand to show your appreciation to teachers.
New Membership Resources
Membership is at the heart of PTA. Members allow us to do great things for children in our schools and make our voice more powerful when we speak to legislators. To help PTAs recruit and retain members, National PTA has created three new flyers(scroll down and expand links at the bottom of the page). The flyers are targeted at three different audiences:
- General Audience (for policymakers, advocates, and outside organizations)
- Families and Educators (for families, caregivers, and community members who share the mission of helping every child succeed)
- Parent and School Leaders (for local parent and school leaders such as teachers and administrators)
The flyers are available as fillable PDFs in both color and black and white and in both Spanish and English. All of the flyers have a fillable graphic box for your PTA logoand text box for contact information on the front. The families and educators flyer also has a customizable membership form on the back.
Teacher Appreciation Week Resources
Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up May 7-11, and National PTA has new resources to recognize those VITs (Very Important Teachers)at your school. Teachers do so much for our children every day, and the effect they have on children’s lives lasts for decades. Almost every adult can immediately name a teacher who made a difference in their life.
National PTA has created several resources to help PTAs show their appreciation for all that teachers do with a collection of editable resources, including:
- Promotional Flyer (landscapeand portrait)
- Editable Flyer in Word
- Editable Certificates(from PTA/PTSA President, Principal, and Student)
- Facebook Cover Graphic
- Twitter Cover Graphic
Use the #ThankATeacher hashtag to promote what your PTA is doing for Teacher Appreciation Week, and keep an eye on National PTA’s One Voice blogand PTAOurChildren.orgfor other ways to celebrate your school’s teachers.
