Northville Council of PTA's Mission Statement
The mission of the Northville Council of Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) is to provide a forum for discussion of child-related issues, to communicate ideas, to coordinate common building level programs and to promote parent awareness. The mission of the National PTA is to make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. We do this by working with the following committees and programs.
Northville Council of PTAs will provide and participate in programs and activities that will benefit children directly or indirectly. The council will continue its commitment to the following programs as well as others:
Advocacy is a standing committee of the Northville Council of PTAs. The Advocacy Committee’s goal is to protect the interests of children’s education in Lansing and Washington in a non-partisan approach. Our purpose is to inform parents about important education issues at the state or federal level and to encourage people to contact legislators to make sure their voice is heard.
Community Engagement Committee coordinates and/or sponsors community wide speakers on relevant and timely topics that will help parents handle parenting issues. Events will take place throughout the year and information will be made available to all in the community. We work closely with other Northville and Community organizations to bring relevant information to our families. We are also a founding member of the Northville C.A.R.E.S. for Youth Advisory Council.
Reflections provide all students, kindergarten through twelfth grade, an opportunity to participate in the National PTA annual arts Reflections Program. Students are encouraged to submit their work in one of the following categories: Film/Video Production, Dance, Choreography, Musical Composition, Photography, Visual Arts and Literature. Each student should contact their building PTA to request information such as rules,entry form and due dates as each PTA may offer different categories each year.
The Council funds many of these and other programs through the annual School Supply Kits fundraiser. The sales of the kits occur in spring and are made available to the parents/students prior to the start of the school year. All proceeds are used to benefit the students of Northville Public Schools.
Your time, efforts and continued support provided to our kids, schools and community are greatly appreciated.
