McGilvra Elementary School PTA

Go Wildcats!

The objectives of the PTA include:
• To promote the welfare of children and youth in the home, school, and community.
• To secure adequate laws for the care and protection of youth and children.
• To bring into closer relation the home and the school, so that parents and teachers may collaborate in training the child.
• To develop between educators and the general public such efforts as will secure for every child the highest advantage in physical, mental, and social education.
• The overall goal of McGilvra Parents and PTA is to support the teachers of our children and to achieve the best education possible for all children.
• General PTA meetings are held on the last Wednesday of every other month at 6:30 in the library; see the School Calendar page for exact dates.
