Schools thrive when they have strong parent involvement and a supportive community that reinforces the daily classroom experience. The PTA looks for ways to strengthen the program and the community by helping parents find ways to support the school as volunteers and advocates.

Language and culture go hand in hand. While many of us are not Mandarin speakers, we can still participate in cultural celebrations that enrich our own life experience and demonstrate interest in the broader educational experience our children are receiving at Jie Ming. The PTA organizes and hosts events that bring the community together to share and learn about different aspects of Chinese culture. 

Hosting cultural events, creating a school library with both Chinese and English books, and showing appreciation for our teachers and administrators take financial resources. The PTA coordinates fundraising activities that are used to expand the opportunities available to our children.

Anyone can come to PTA meetings and volunteer with the PTA. That said, the membership is only $10 per person and allows you to vote on PTA decisions at meetings.
