#EVERYMEMBERCOUNTS
The time is now for parents, students, teachers, and administrators to demand a first-class public education for every child, regardless of their circumstance. The time is now for everyone who cares about our kids to join PTA and support our school districts in creating a safe place to learn where students are supported academically, physically, and emotionally.

The time is now for PTAs in Texas to leverage 110 years of advocacy and ensure that our legislators understand that every student should have the opportunity to reach their full potential. The time is now to contact your elected officials to ensure that the legislature will #FundTheFuture of Texas students!

If you haven’t joined already it’s not too late--join today!

MESSAGE FROM PTA PRESIDENT

WARNING PHISHING SCAM - DO NOT FALL FOR THIS
In the past view months, emails for PTA Board members on various campuses around AISD have been asking parents in a direct email to go out and buy gift cards and then to take the picture of the codes on the back and email them back. KMAG and PTA are never going to ask you for the codes. During the teacher appreciation holiday party in December, we may ask for physical gift cards to donate. We will never describe a big need scenario and then ask you gift card codes! Be on the lookout!

TEXAS PTA MISSION
To make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

PTA is the largest child advocacy organization in the US. Please help us grow our membership to greater than 500,000 Texans. This will help Texas PTA have a voice that will in turn put pressure on the legislators to fix the funding formula that is so negatively affecting Austin ISD schools. To help ensure Texas PTA has a strong advocacy voice, please join the PTA.
