The purpose of the Island Lake PTA is to be a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and an advocate for the education and well-being of every child.
About Our PTA
PTA offers all parents and caregivers the opportunity to be engaged in their child’s potential. Being a member of PTA means that you are part of a powerful association and action plan that is focused on programs and initiatives that strengthen your child’s education.
PTA membership and dues support your child by funding essential educational and curriculum needs; advocating on behalf of children and educators at the local, state and national levels; and building an inclusive school community for all families. Join PTA for your child because increasing our membership, even by one, makes it possible to provide important educational resources, speak up on important issues and create a stronger school community.
The only thing required of you to be a member of PTA is to pay the annual membership dues. Beyond that, however you choose to PTA is up to you. Membership in PTA can involve as much or as little time as you have to offer. There is no wrong or right way to be involved – anything you can give, whether it’s time or money, will support your child’s potential.
We encourage every family and staff member in the school to become a PTA member to support the success of their child. We want a diverse membership base that reflects all of the families and needs of students at the school. PTA strengthens connections between your family, your child’s classmates and their families, and teachers to build a thriving and inclusive community for everyone.
PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.
All members, employees, volunteers, and partners have a shared responsibility to align their efforts toward the achievement of our association’s strategic initiatives.
We acknowledge the potential of everyone without regard, including but not limited to: age, culture, economic status, ethnicity, gender, parental status, physical ability, political philosophy, race, or religion.
We value the individual contributions of members, employees, volunteers, and partners as we work collaboratively to achieve our association’s goals.
We will work in partnership with a wide array of individuals and organizations to broaden and enhance our ability to serve and advocate for all children and families.
We are dedicated to children’s educational success, health, and well-being through strong family and community engagement, while remaining accountable to the principles upon which our association was founded.
