The number one reason to join the Parent Teacher Association is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help your school. But there are many more PTA advantages:
For less than 3 cents a day, you can become a PTA member, joining more than 5 million other people who share your interest in issues affecting children. Everyone — parents, educators, students, and other citizens active in their schools and communities — is invited to join our not-for-profit parent association.
It's not the amount of time you can contribute that's most important, but rather your commitment to help PTA make a difference in the lives of children. It only takes a moment to join. You do not have to be a volunteer to be a member. We value your time and strive to use it effectively.
3. What is Free Stuff Fridays all about?
Once a month, the PTA provides a treat at lunch to children who are PTA members. Treats include snow cones, ice pops, and popcorn. Each child must have a paid PTA membership to be placed on the Free Stuff Friday list. For example, if you have 3 children at Bryant, there must be at least 3 paid memberships for your family. The children love receiving the treats, so please join the PTA!

15. What is Junior Achievement and how can I help?
Junior Achievement (JA) provides lesson plans and materials designed specifically for each grade level that teaches the students about financial literacy, economy, and business entrepreneurship. Each class at Mary Bryant must have at least one volunteer presenting the program.
This is a great opportunity to enter your child's classroom and become "teacher for the day". There are five lesson plans and each lesson actually takes up to or less than 60 minutes. You and your teacher will develop a teaching schedule that is suitable for both of you. On the days of FCAT testing volunteers are not allowed on campus until after noon. However, classes can begin as soon as the teacher can incorporate them into his or her daily routine.
Because of it's popularity among previous volunteers, the classes fill up quickly. If you are unable to make the meeting, please contact JA@BryantPTA.com and set up an appointment to discuss the program and review the materials provided in the classroom kit. For volunteers that have already signed up, please let Jocelyn know if you can pick up your kit on this day. We will still need to have the bio/conduct form completed.
