The year may be winding down, but certainly not the excitement at National PTA!

We had a joyous time at our staff Holiday party...and

During our annual PTA Holiday reception held at our National Headquarters, we were honored to host some very distinguished guests.
In attendance was the dynamic Stedman Graham (chairman and CEO of S. Graham & Associates). And the legendary Marian Wright Edelman (president and founder of the Children's Defense Fund) stopped by to talk to Byron Garrett, our CEO, and Jan Harp Domene, our president.

PTA Focuses on Urban Development Agenda in Houston
Mar 17, 2009

PTA was present in Houston along with the Houston ISD Council of PTAs on February 20, celebrating the council's 100th anniversary. The event was a part of PTA's National Urban Development Agenda, which engages and empowers urban families, caregivers, and communities to advocate for the academic success of students from urban areas across the country.

Key community stakeholders, including Texas PTA, Houston government agency members, clergymen, and Houston ISD administrators, were on hand for the event. Several students, parents, and teachers were also in attendance. Membership Director of National PTA, Michael Knowles, gave an inspirational keynote address where he spoke about PTA's commitment to encouraging families to become more meaningfully involved in their child's education. Knowles also shared the urgency that exists for communities to collaborate with parents, schools, and their local PTA to ensure that every child has the best chance for achieving educational success in elementary school and beyond.

The Houston Council of PTAs is a good example of the effective work PTA is doing in urban schools, communities, and neighborhoods. Their commitment to engaging and encouraging parents and families to be involved in their children's education is a reflection of the rich history that is PTA.
