About

Last year was a very successful year for the PTA.  We ran our second Boosterthon Fun Run as a major fundraising activity and it was very successful.  We far exceeded our goal and now have established a Grant Fund dedicated to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) oriented projects.

The PTA also continued to support the following:

  • Teacher Reimbursements
  • Mini Grants
  • Author Visits
  • Field Day
  • PE Tokens
  • Spelling Bee
  • Cultural Arts Assemblies
  • Run/Walk Club
  • 6th Grade show and Celebration
  • Spirit Wear
  • School Supply Packs
  • Staff Appreciation events
  • Autism Awareness events
  • Family Fun Nights
  • and more.

Why Join?

By joining or renewing your annual membership to the PTA, you are enriching the lives of every child who attends Poplar Tree Elementary School.  Your annual dues allow the PTA to fund various activities and programs for the staff, students and community.  By attending our family fun nights and other fundraising activities, you remind children that their school is an important part of the community.  By volunteering your spare time, you help the PTA, teachers and other school officials make Poplar Tree a great place to learn.   Joining the PTA does not require that you do anything, however whatever support you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Volunteer

There are many opportunities to volunteer with programs and activities throughout the year at Poplar Tree.  You decide on how much time you can commit but every minute helps. The level or participation can be as high as volunteering to serve as a committee chairperson to making phone calls, sending emails or providing baked goods.  Be sure to complete the Volunteer Interest Form received at Back to School night and return to the school.

If you are interested in any of the open Committee positions listed on the Contacts Page – please contact PTA President Melanie Read at poplartreepta@gmail.com.

Mission

The mission of the Poplar Tree PTA is to:

  • Be an advocate for children
  • Be a partner in the learning environment; and
  • Assist parents in developing the skills they need to raise and protect their children.

Bylaws

Bylaws are the rules the Poplar Tree Elementary PTA must follow. They are adopted and amended by a vote of the PTA’s members at a general meeting. PTA bylaws may not conflict with the bylaws of National PTA or the state PTA and they cannot conflict with state or federal law. Our unit is a 501(c)(3) organization and these bylaws are required for nonprofit status.
