Why Should I Join?

University Park PTA was founded in 1988 by a community of parents, students, teachers, administrators and businesses devoted to the educational success of University Park's children and the promotion of parental involvement in our school.


We are volunteers aspiring to empower our children by making available to our school community the tools, resources, and friendships essential for success.


Joining the PTA allows you to make a difference in your child's education and gives you a voice and a vote at University Park.  Membership AND participation mean that you will have a better understanding of what goes on at our school and in your child's classroom.  


We hope you will choose to celebrate with us as a participating member of the PTA family!
