Why Join PTA?
We know that children learn more and have better lives when everyone in the school community works together to share thoughts, information and work on projects to benefit the students. By becoming a member of Herrington Elementary PTA, you can become an important part of helping to ensure that these plans become a reality.

Do I need to volunteer my time as part of PTA?
No! While we appreciate everyone who volunteers their time for us, we know that it's not always possible. By paying your membership fees, you are contributing to the PTA and the school. The money from your fees goes towards all the events we host, field trips we pay for each grade level, school supplies and so much more. Also, part of your membership contributes to the voice of the PTA in both Federal and State Legislation. You are making a difference!
