Mayor Barbara Bass proclaimed this month as PTA Membership Enrollment Month.

There are more than 3,000 PTA members serving Tyler ISD campuses and the school district’s PTA Council would like to increase that to 3,200 this month, according to a TISD news release.

The council recently reported more than 560 volunteer hours, $8,400 in cash donations and more than $13,800 of in-kind donations during its affiliated campus’ fall community service projects.

PTAs help promote communication between parents, teachers and the community and provide fundraising and volunteer support for campus programs and events, according to the news release.

The council is available to support campus PTAs as needed. For more information about PTA Council or campus PTAs, contact Brenda Stratton at strattonbrenda@hotmail.com.
