I don’t have time to volunteer at the school, so why should I join the PTA?

First of all, when you join the PCP PTA, whether or not you choose to attend our monthly meetings or provide time to volunteer, your entire family receives FREE entrance to our event such as Fall Festival and Sweetheart Dances, which normally cost $7 per person.

Wondering what else your PTA membership helps make possible?

In recent years the PTA:

       Planned and hosted three yearly social events for preschool families: the Fall Festival in October, the Sweetheart Dance in February and the Spring Picnic in May

       Welcomed informational speakers at PTA meetings (physical and occupational therapists, police officers to discus safety education, community partners, etc)

       Sponsored an entire week of amazing staff appreciation activities including the yearly school staff meal in May

       Provided the school with volunteers to help with vision and hearing screenings, school pictures, laminating for teachers, and greeting visitors and parents

       Hosted the annual book fair in November

       Provided a dinner and snacks for our school staff during parent-teacher conferences

       Provided your blue home & school communication folders that our students use     everyday

       Held a charity drive to benefit district families in need with winter coats

       Bought a bike shed for the class bikes

Besides feeling good about what your dues help to accomplish, joining the PTA gives you:

     Membership into the Illinois PTA and National PTA

     Access to online parenting resources and E-Newsletters relating to children’s and legislative issues

     Access to leadership training opportunities

     The Member-to-Member Network, connecting you directly to Congress to influence issues important to children, schools, and families in our area

Membership does not automatically sign you up to volunteer. However, we are always in search of volunteers to make our events happen and help bring lots of smiling faces, and if this interests you, you can reach out to us at But again volunteering is not required.

To join the PTA, please go to

We look forward to having you join our association! Thank you!

PTA Meeting Dates:

Please consider attending a PTA meeting this school year. Not only do we provide free childcare during each meeting, we also try to keep the meeting to one hour in length.  It's a great way to learn about what's going on at our preschool, in District 204 and how to get involved.  See you there!

All meetings will be held at Prairie Children Preschool
