Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

Take Your Family To School Week - Week of February 17

TAKE YOUR FAMILY TO SCHOOL WEEK

The National Parent Teacher Association says this is the week to get involved in your children’s school. Take Your Family to School Week coincides with PTA Founders Day (February 17). It commemorates the day in 1897 when the PTA began its work of encouraging parent involvement in children’s education.

Take your Family to School Week is one of the PTA programs designed to bridge the gap between home and school.
It’s part of the PTA philosophy: “When it comes to children’s education, parent involvement is key.”
