Anne Henderson and Nancy Berla summed it up in their book A New Generation of Evidence: The Family Is Critical to Student Achievement, which reviewed the existing research: “When parents are involved in their children’s education at home, they do better in school. And when parents are involved in school, children go farther in school and the schools they go to are better.”
The nominating committee recognizes and recruits the most qualified people available for PTA positions. It is the most important committee in PTA.

Every year Alki PTA has an opportunity to come together as an organization and advocate for our kids! Vanessa (Our Advocacy Chair) could use some help to make sure that we get all the important information out to help folks stay informed on issues. This could range from formerly signing up to co- chair, or just focusing on a subset of advocacy tasks like monitoring legislation being brought up and helping to promote advocacy alerts on Facebook and E-news. There is so much that can be done! If you are interested in finding out more please email Vanessa at firstname.lastname@example.org
Teacher Appreciation Week (multiple volunteer positions):
