What is a PTA?

It’s a Parent Teacher Association… a group of teachers, parents, guardians, staff, and families discussing school matters! We have meetings throughout the year to answer questions, discuss school issues, let our voices be heard, and more! We fundraise and organize volunteers to supplement what the school and district provide to enrich our students’ experience at John Rogers. Attendance at meetings isn’t required & most will be online. 

Our Mission and Vision:

As we navigate these extraordinary times, the mission of our PTA has never been more important:  Building Community, Enriching Education, and Advocating for EVERY child. Together we will support this mission by giving direct help to our teachers, staff, and families. While these times can feel challenging, frustrating, and fear-filled, they are also an exciting opportunity to re-imagine how best to serve and engage our community in meaningful, relevant, and equitable ways.

 


Land acknowledgement

We, the PTA, recognize that we at John Rogers Elementary are on the traditional land of the first people of Seattle. We acknowledge and celebrate the Coast Salish people of present and past, especially of the Duwamish Tribe and Lushootseed speaking People who are the original inhabitants and continue to be stewards of this land. We also live, learn and work on this land and honor them with love and gratitude.
