Tenino Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
We need parents and community members to enrich our schools and support our amazing kids! Please make the choice to help us help our kids, our schools, and our community. We welcome input, ideas, and innovations to meet our mission! Our children matter; our children are the future. Thank you for your time and energy to make our schools the best they can be!
When you join you the Tenino Combined PTA, you become part of the Washington PTA and the larger National PTA. Your voice joins tens of thousands across Washington and millions across the United States as advocates for children.
That every child’s potential become a reality
The PTA is
- a powerful voice for children,
- a relevant resource for families, schools, and communities, and
- an advocate for the well-being and education of all children.
We Accomplish our Mission By:
Speaking on behalf of children and youth in the schools, in the community, and before governmental bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children;
Supporting parents* in developing skills to raise, protect and advocate for their children; Encouraging parent*, teacher, student and community involvement;
Promoting opportunities for positive outcomes for children; and
Being a financially stable, well-managed organization that promotes diversity, provides quality service, models best practices, and values its members and employees.
*Parent may include adults who play an important role in a child’s family life since other adults (grandparents, aunts, uncles, or guardians) may carry the primary responsibility for a child’s health, welfare, education, and safety.
