Membership Matters! -- We are counting on you
Thank you to everyone that has joined the PTSA this year! We now have over 175 members and are well on our way of reaching our goal of 500+ members.
PTSA Membership is open to anyone who believes in the mission and purposes of Parent Teacher Student Association. Individual members may belong to any number of PTSAs and pay dues to each one. Every person who joins a local PTSA automatically becomes a member of both the state and national PTSAs. Together we are a powerful voice for children. With your help, we can continue to work toward PTA's goal of a quality education and nurturing environment for every child.
To join, simply visit our table during an upcoming PTSA general meeting or you can return your membership form to the front office with your payment. Please direct questions to our membership chair, Terry Hornsby. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PTSA Vision: What the future will look like if PTA accomplishes its mission. Making every child's potential a reality.

We have also talked with our principal, Dr. Lowery and if we receive 100% staff membership he has agreed to a dress down day.
Advocating for children and families means taking an active role in the decisions and policies that affect families and education. You can influence the policy decisions made at a local, state and national level in a number of ways: by staying informed, by attending or speaking at school board meetings, by contacting your state or federal elected official. The Thurgood PTSA will do its part to keep you informed of PTA-supported initiatives through emails and Facebook. To ensure your email is in our database, please email
