    How does PTSA help support Meadows?

    The PTSA sponsors fun school events (Scholastic Book Fair, Movie Night, Field Day, etc.), provides funds to help pay for classroom necessities and teacher requests, as well as field trips, after school clubs and educational assemblies.

    Do I need to join every year?

    YES! Your membership runs through the end of each school calendar year.

    What are the benefits of joining the Meadows PTSA?

    By joining the PTSA you'll help support fun activities at Meadows. You'll also get some amazing discounts through the Washington State PTA website (Washington State Fair, Great Wolf Lodge, Silverwood, Key Arena, Wild Waves, Xfinity Arena, Tacoma Dome, car rentals).

    Do I have to volunteer and attend PTSA meetings?

    Becoming a PTSA member does not require you to attend meetings or commit to volunteering. However, PTSA events can’t be planned or executed without the help of volunteers, so any time you can give is always appreciated!

    PTSA: MYTH vs. FACT

    1. “Only stay at home moms join PTSA” – Actually, PTSA is made up of parents, students, teachers and various community members.
    2. “I don’t have time to join PTSA” – PTSA has no volunteer requirements. However, opportunities to be involved are available to everyone (sometimes even from the comfort of your own home).
    3. “PTSA has all the help they need” – PTSA is always looking for fresh faces and new ideas! We would love to hear your suggestions for new events, fundraising opportunities, and how we can better support our Meadows community.
