Why should our family join PTA?  Your membership in our school’s PTA creates a strong network to connect students, parents, families and the school locally and on the state and national level.  PTA allows parents to have a voice in directly influencing positive changes at our school and within the broader Evanston community, for the welfare of all children, their education and well-being.  Within our school, a strong PTA demonstrates our collective support of our children, families, teachers and the unique educational experience offered at Martin Luther King Jr. Literary and Fine Arts School.
But I am a busy parent or teacher and don’t have time to volunteer? That’s ok; you don’t have to give time to be a valued PTA member.  Although parent volunteers and teacher assistance and input are needed for a variety of roles and events throughout the year, through your membership, the PTA is able to implement a variety of unique programs, including art and literacy programs, scholarships, school assemblies (including MLK day), and communication tools (e.g. school directory, calendar, eNewsletters). Please consider joining even if you cannot volunteer time.  
Joining the King Arts PTA is one of the easiest things you can do to directly help your student’s education and the education of all King Arts students.
How does my membership help King Arts students?   The King Arts PTA sponsors many programs - a few examples include:
  • Artists-in-residency programs
  • Author visits and literacy programs
  • Scholarships
  • Science and STEM activities like Family Math Night, Solarbration
  • School assemblies, including MLK assembly
  • Teacher support
  • Middle school musical
  • Community building events
  • Communication – school directory, school calendar and eNewsletter 

If I join, what are my responsibilities?

All you need to do is join.  Simply by becoming a member, you are supporting King Arts.  Yearly membership dues are $10 per individual (1 membership card and 1 vote) or $15 per household (2 membership cards and 2 votes).
