 How to Get Engaged in the Jefferson PTA
1)    Join the PTA:  The cost of membership is $10.00 per family.  While a portion of the funds go to pay for National, State and County PTA dues, the majority of your membership fee directly supports Jefferson activities.   You may join online or complete a membership form in English  or en Español and turn into the main office, PTA Mailbox, to the attention of Heather Schildge.

2)   Get Connected:  Join the PTA ListServ to receive timely information about PTA and school events.  Sign Up Below! Please note, in the interest of sharing relevant information with the widest audience of Jefferson families, unless you complete an "Opt-Out Form" and return it to the front office to the PTA's attention, the PTA will obtain your information from the school administration and use your e-mail to provide you information via the Listserv (including the weekly Buzz).

3)    Join the Jefferson PTA Leadership Team:  We currently have many volunteer opportunities and ways for you to get involved in areas that may be of interest to you.  Many of these jobs can be completed from home.  We hope you consider ways that work for you to be involved during your Jefferson years!     
If you have any questions about the volunteer opportunities, ways to get involved, or ideas for the Jefferson PTA, please email Polly Hall, Jefferson PTA President.
