Why the PTA and parent involvement are important to Ro
Having worked with children most of her life, she knows the importance of parental involvement. Rolonda values the time she spends as a PTA volunteer at Drew because she understands the importance an active and engaged parent plays in developing children who will be lifelong learners. Her favorite PTA sponsored activities include the Red and White Ball and the Fall Festival.
The PTA is an organization that helps to support parents, teachers and students through various educational and extracurricular activities that help build well rounded students. Volunteering is a great way to become involved and to show your support for your child’s school.
