The Paden PTA is made up of families and teachers working together to create the best possible educational environment for every child at our school. The PTA is a dedicated group of volunteers who spend time in the classroom, organize events and programs, send out communications and raise funds to support a range of programs from field trips and assemblies to curriculum enhancements.


The PTA exists because decades of research have shown that children do better when their families are involved both at home and at school. Grades are higher. Test scores rise. Self esteem grows. Schools improve. 


You can make these outcomes a reality for your child, your school, and your community by being involved in PTA. Please consider coming to a PTA meeting. We meet the second or third Wednesday of most months (check the calendar for exact dates), in the Library/Media Center at 6:30 pm. Free babysitting is provided. We hope to see you there!
