Message from the President
The PTA year is underway! PTA is its members, and membership efforts in Seminole County are off to a great start! Thanks to all of you who are making PTA a priority this year. You will be making friends, growing, learning, and working together as you raise funds and plan programs for your school community. In the process, you will become an advocate, an opportunity unique to PTA. In adding your voice to those of others, you are becoming part of the ongoing mission of PTA to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. PTA does its best work when members work together, in one voice for every child.
You will have the opportunity to first use your voice as you vote in November. We have the right and the responsibility to cast an informed vote, using reliable resources, aligning your priorities, to select legislators from president to state and local officials. PTA will continue to advocate for all children when those elected officials assume their offices in our communities, in Tallahassee, and in DC.
Florida PTA has selected several Legislative priorities to address including a focus on those most under-served children in order to improve the future of our communities. Juvenile Justice, Homelessness, and Foster Care will be addressed along with Early Childhood opportunities, ESSA, the Well being of all Children and more. You can receive important Legislative information by signing up for Voters Voice, ‘click here.
It will be a busy PTA year, thank you for being a part of it. Thank you for adding your voice to the many others in PTA. But first, use your voice to vote!
Thank you for all you do on behalf of PTA,
Katie Burris, President SCCPTA
