The Southwest Elementary PTA raises funds through memberships and fundraisers. Where does that money go?
PTA dollars support education and build community through:
Spending varies each year based on the school community's needs. 97% of all dollars go towards these efforts. Three percent covers overhead expenses. Every effort is made to insure that PTA dollars are maximized for the benefit of students, families and teachers and staff.
Being a PTA member means you are part of a powerful association and action plan focused on programs and initiatives to strengthen your child’s education and the family-school partnership.
However you PTA, it’s all an investment in your child. PTA to support your child’s teachers and curriculum. PTA to advocate on the issues impacting your child. Affect change at the local state and national levels. PTA to build a stronger, more diverse and inclusive school community.
There is no wrong way to PTA.
We invite everyone to participate, because we can do more together than apart. Please join SWES PTA.

Throughout the year, the PTA hosts general session meetings open to all where we actively seek community participation and engagement. It is a friendly environment to meet other parents and school staff.
The PTA Board also holds monthly business meeting on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 PM. These meetings last approximately 45 minutes. Meetings are open to all PTA Members.
If you are not a PTA member, you may join at the PTA meeting and then decide. Remember, you must renew your membership each year. Thank you in advance!
