    Why Join the PTA?

    When you become a member of the Muddy Brook PTA, your membership dollars go directly to support community events like our Ice Cream Social, Movie Nights, and June Family BBQ.  National and State PTA membership gives you access to discounts from T Mobile, New England Revolution Soccer, Sharp Electronics, Barnes & Noble, and Southwest Vacations.  Click here for details.

    We are working to provide out PTA members with discounts and promotions to local businesses and retailers.  Check back often for updates.

    Why PTA Memberships are Important

    • PTA volunteers are working across the country to create a better school and home environment for every child.
    • Volunteering and becoming a member of PTA do not occupy the same space.
    • Every person that joins increases the strength of the local unit 10 fold – imagine a choir of voices singing. Each voice brings a different tone and sound to the chorus making it stronger and more beautiful.
    • Local and state leaders consistently come to PTA leaders to hear what PTA is saying and what PTA believes – check out the state PTA help wanted section. There are many opportunities for volunteers to sit as a PTA representative on state education related committees to share what PTA believes. The Massachusetts Board of Education has a parent seat filled by a person recommended by the PTA.
    • PTA is more than our school and fundraising. PTA is the leading voice and respected association in the country.
    • PTA is traditionally in the form of parents supporting teachers and children. Teachers help the success skyrocket by joining and supporting efforts of parent volunteers.
