My name is Heidi Corripio and I have the privilege of being the President of the PTA at Starkey for the 2017-2018 school year.  The entire PTA board has been working hard this summer to make sure it's a great year for the students, staff, and families of Starkey Elementary.
 
What is PTA?  We are the Parent Teacher Association that implements programs to benefit all of the children, the families, and the staff at Starkey Elementary.  We are all volunteers that want to try and advocate for the betterment of our children.  We are not a fundraising organization but do some fundraising so we can provide great programs for all.  Did you know that by signing up to be a PTA member at Starkey Elementary you are automatically a member of the National and Florida PTA also? 
 
If you join the PTA, do you know what is expected?  Nothing!!!....but we would appreciate your help in volunteering, when you can and we would appreciate your attendance at our 3 general PTA meetings.   FREE dinner and child care is provided at each of these meetings.
 
We have added some new programs and changed the way our fundraising is laid out this year. The proposed PTA budget for the school year will be reviewed, discussed and need to be approved at this meeting.  I would go into more detail but all of this information will be presented at the 1st General PTA meeting on August 31st in the cafeteria at Starkey.....so you need to attend to find out!  
 
How do I join the PTA?  Complete a membership form and pay the dues. Membership bundles includes a spirit t-shirt, coupon card and PTA membership for $20. 
 
Be sure to like us and follow us on facebook: Starkey Elementary PTA so you are up to date on the events.  If you have any questions about PTA or Starkey in general, please let us know via email at starkeypta@gmail.com.
