Did you know Renner has about 1200 students, and 100% of the faculty belong to PTA, but only 50% of Renner families have joined?!  Renner teachers are that committed to your children, and if they are, shouldn’t you be too?

 

We challenge YOU to be a part of your child’s school comm-YOU-nity and join today on the Renner Membership Toolkit (MTK) under rennerpta.membershiptoolkit.com.

Membership costs only $25 for a 2-adult, or $20 for a single adult membership for the entire school year.

 

  • Each school has its own PTA, and joining one of your children’s schools does NOT mean you have joined them all. For example, joining at your elementary school does not automatically mean you have joined your middle or high school PTA,
  • Being a member keeps you informed. It does NOT mean you are volunteering for anything unless you choose to do so.
  • Joining means you will be included in the student directory (but you may opt out if you choose), and the directory is accessible under the MTK app easily downloaded for FREE on your smartphone.

Potential members frequently ask, “What does PTA really do, and what does my money pay for?”  Here are some examples of all the things your $20-25 pays for:

  1. Fun social events for the kids like throughout the year,
  2. Fundraisers like the Color Run, the Book Fair, and Packet Pick-Up day (saving you money on school supplies bought in bulk),
  3. PE apparel, music t-shirts, and other spirit wear from design to finished items for sale,
  4. Teacher grants for improvements to the school not paid for by the district,
  5. Hosting teacher appreciation lunches that aren’t paid for by your tax dollars,
  6. Guest speakers and experts brought into the school to discuss current topics of interest such as technology, and internet safety for the kids and parents.

JOIN TODAY!
