Membership Information

 

We invite you to join the Alki PTA: Join or renew for the 2020/2021 school year for $12 per person. By joining PTA, you become part of a powerful organization that advocates on behalf of children at the local, state, and national levels, as well as having a voice in what happens here at Alki Elementary. Join HERE!

Membership dues are not a fundraiser for Alki PTA — your $12 membership goes directly towards the required fees to National, State, and Local Council PTAs.

Have questions? Please feel free to reach out to Membership Chair, Owen Reese.

Membership Competition
Alki V. Genesee Hill
Goal: We’ll compete to sign up the most new PTA members in a friendly competition to encourage PTA membership at both schools.
Timeline: Competition runs from January 19 – February 28th.
Matchup: The number of students at Genesee Hill is about twice that of Alki, so they will need 2 new members for every 1 new Alki member. We’ll report out membership gains throughout the challenge.
What’s at stake: The losing PTA will honor the winner with a poem shared via social media.
Membership: PTA memberships are $12 per person, per year and fees go directly towards supporting State and Local PTA efforts. Scholarships are available! Reach out to membership@alkipta.com!
