Why Join (en Español)

The most important reason to join the PTSA is to support your child or children at Eastern, and to support activities at the school itself.


What is the PTSA?


The PTSA is a forum for parents to learn, support, and influence what is happening in your school. As a member attending PTSA meetings, you help determine how the funds collected can be used for our school.

School activities supported by the PTSA:

  • Eat, Meet & Greet
  • International Night
  • Game Night
  • Staff Appreciation Lunches and Dinners
  • 8 th  Grade Dance
  • Reptiles at Outdoor Education (6 th grade)
  • Shakespeare Workshops (7 th grade)
  • Slam Poetry (8 th  grade)
  • subscription for the entire school


  • Requests from teachers and staff to support a variety of smaller programs in the school through mini-grants. In 2016-2017 this included:
    • bringing the author of Red Scarf Girl  for a 6 th grade visit
    • enabling the Math Team to attend a competition
    • training Physical Education staff in archery


Membership costs only $10 per household per year.
