Membership Form

The Cypress Springs Elementary PTA offers programs and events to enrich the lives of the students attending our school. It is through our membership that we are able to offer these outstanding programs.Your investment allows us to continue offering quality programs and teacher appreciation events. We encourage all parents, family members and community member to join CSE PTA. CSE PTA annual membership is only $6 ($2.25 goes towards National dues and $1.25 for state dues).

If you are still hesitant about joining, it may be due to one of the following scenarios:

I don’t have any time. Some people think that to be a PTA member you have to be a volunteer. While there are many volunteer opportunities available, there is no expectation for our members to volunteer. We appreciate everyone’s membership, whether or not you are able to volunteer, because each member increases your PTA’s ability to advocate for children.

Is the PTA impactful? Without doubt! Decades’ worth of research shows that when parents are involved, students perform better in school. They receive higher grades and test scores, have better school attendance and lower rates of suspension, are more likely to graduate high school, and are more likely to pur- sue postsecondary education. Children of involved parents also exhibit increased motivation, better self-esteem, less drug and alcohol use, and fewer instances of violent behavior. Those great benefits come from parent involvement, a major focus of PTA.

It costs too much. PTA membership is one of the most cost-effective investments parents can make in their children’s education and schools. For an average of two cents a day, parents can help improve their children’s school experiences. And, as a result, PTA members are better connected to their schools, are better informed, and have access to money-saving discounts and benefits.

Isn’t the PTA just for moms?. While moms make up a great portion of our membership, our organization is open to dads, grandparents and friends – anyone who wants to make a difference in the live of students at Cypress Springs Elementary are encouraged to join. Dads play a great role in the lives of their children, and joining/supporting the PTA is just one more way for you to show influence.
