Why Join the PTA?

Your membership gives your family great benefits. You will receive a Burning Tree School Directory and have access to the mobile directory app. The school directory and app provide valuable information at your finger tips: class rosters; student contact information; teacher and staff contact information; PTA contact information; school calendar; school policies; and much, much more. In addition, PTA members can participate in our before and after school activities through our new partner FLEX Academies. You can stay connected to the Burning Tree community by joining the PTA!

Your membership goes a long way to making an impact at our school. Every year, our PTA organizes and pays for several wonderful events that enrich our children's educational experience, including cultural arts assemblies, International Night, Science Fair and Lego League. Every year, our PTA sponsors and executes community-building events, such as our Back-to-School picnic, Spring Fair, Talent Show and 5th Grade Farewell. Every year, each one of our wonderful teachers receives funds from our PTA to purchase needed materials for their classrooms, and we support our incredible teaching staff with professional development opportunities. And every year we need YOU to join the PTA to make all of these things happen!

Your membership gives Burning Tree a powerful voice to advocate for our kids. PTA members represent Burning Tree as MCCPTA Delegates and as well as Whitman Cluster Representatives advocating for causes important to us and our children, such as smaller class sizes and school construction funding for Pyle Middle School and Whitman High School. Make your voice heard, and your vote count, by joining the PTA!
