Become a Member of Riverside PTA today!

 *as of 10/20

 Our Membership Drive goal is to have 100% participation from all our families.

 

 

While your participation in all of our fundraisers is entirely voluntary, we do hope to realize our goal of 100% participation in our membership drive. We appreciate contributions of any size. Reaching this target shows our unified dedication to our community and to improve learning.

 

PLEASE NOTE: COVID-19 restrictions that prioritize the safety of the school community may prevent some events and programs mentioned below from occurring as they normally would in the 2020-2021 school year.  The PTA looks forward to resuming any of the impacted events and programs as soon as possible!

 

Why You Should Become a Member

In a typical year, our school community counts on the PTA to deliver a series of events and programs (plus any new initiatives) throughout the academic year that benefits families, enrich the classroom curriculum, support our staff and school, and build an even stronger community.  In a pandemic year like this one, the programming lineup will look different.  Our mission to enrich every student’s educational experience, however, remains the same.

 

The PTA also remains committed to the Riverside School staff and classroom needs.  Teachers are preparing for a truly unprecedented year and will be taking on additional responsibilities to protect the safety of our children.  No matter the challenges, we know that Riverside School teachers will be there for their students.  In turn, the PTA wants to be there for our teachers so they feel prepared to succeed.

 

To carry out this year’s mission, the PTA relies on the generosity of our families via our annual Membership Drive, which is one of our most significant fundraisers.  While your participation in all of our fundraisers is entirely voluntary, we do hope to reach our goal of 100% participation. 

We encourage you to join the PTA and support our efforts to make this the best year possible.  With new approaches to enriching learning (for in-person and remote students alike) and supporting teachers as they deliver instruction in innovative ways, the PTA can help ensure the Riverside School community finishes the year even stronger than it is today.

 

We do a lot and we couldn’t do it without your support!

 

What You Get with Membership

 

  • Access to our online directory– With a paid membership, you will have access to the online PTA directory. You can access it on our website or on your app, which is particularly helpful when organizing play dates and carpools!  Additionally, a printable PDF version of the directory will be distributed to PTA members by October.
  • Access to our online calendar– A comprehensive listing of school and PTA events, our calendar is viewable on your computer or phone via the app, and can be synced directly to your calendar, as well! Get event notifications and reminders. This is a great way to get insight into what your student is experiencing at school—now you can ask what kind of music the lunchtime band performed or how the visiting poet facilitated a poetry writing session!
  • Access to our wonderful community of Parents and Teachers – The PTA hosts many events and provides a variety of opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, to build relationships and discuss issues that are on your mind.

 

We hope you’ll join!
