WELCOME TO THE VALENTINE PTA!

 

“Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion

to reach for the stars to change the world.”  ~ Harriet Tubman

 

 

Valentine PTA supports a variety of programs and services to enhance the education of every child. PTA plans to continue to support our school's Art, STEM, Music, and Library programs as well as several of our instructional aides.

By joining Valentine PTA, you will get to enjoy interacting with students, make new friendships with other parents, and accomplish things that truly make a difference. We have many ways in which parents, grandparents, family members, and local businesses can contribute to the Valentine community. We promise that the time you give to the PTA and the school will be worth your while—and fun! The more you engage with the school community, the more rewarding your experience at Valentine will be.  

Please join the PTA and consider volunteering - it really does make a difference in the lives of all our students! With your support, we can help every child at Valentine “Reach for the Stars!
