Students are considered full members. Here are some great ways to encourage students to join your PTA:

  • Put an enthusiastic and supportive student member on your membership committee.
  • Provide membership invitations with membership envelopes in the summer registration packets to all students including incoming students from middle/junior high schools.
  • Set up a PTA/PTSA table on student registration days and other school events. Highlight activities that benefit students.
  • Publicize the Florida State PTA Graduating High School Senior Scholarships and the membership requirements.
  • Provide student members with school and community service volunteer opportunities which can be listed on their college applications.
  • Remind teachers and staff that PTA is more than a local fundraising group for their school. It is an advocacy organization focused on student success!
  • Hold a grade level or departmental membership competition. Provide winning group with bagels or danish.
  • Challenge the staff at a nearby school to a friendly membership competition.
  • Provide monthly opportunity drawings for teachers and staff who join with donated items from local merchants.
  • Reward teachers and staff with a breakfast or luncheon when 100 percent membership is achieved.
