Northwoods Elementary PTA

Welcome!

Welcome to the Northwoods Elementary PTA! New to Northwoods and wondering just what a PTA is? In short, a PTA is a member-based nonprofit, dedicated “to the educational success of children and the promotion of family engagement in schools.” The Northwoods PTA is part of the National PTA, which was founded in 1897, and is the largest volunteer child advocacy organization in the nation. You can read more about PTAs and about our Northwoods PTA on our Who We Are page.  

Our students work hard every day to live the school’s motto: “CLIMB” – Care for others, Listen to learn, Interact safely, Make good choices, and Become successful. A Community of Learners who are Invested in academic and social growth and Motivated to be our Best.

Our PTA exists to help to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all our Northwoods children.

Interested in volunteering? 

While many of the programs we’ve been able to offer in past years have been effected by Covid, there are still plenty of opportunities to volunteer with the PTA…or, if you have a great idea for something new, you can create your own opportunity! 

Our volunteers have achieved amazing things over the years –

  • Purchasing new computers for the school
  • Funding years of high quality cultural arts programs
  • Running annual festivals and events (Hero Day, School Picnic, International Festival and STEAM Fair)
  • Building one of the best school gardens in the state
  • Advocating for students, teachers and staff on a local and state level
  • Creating and maintaining extensive recycling and composting programs
  • Creating after and before school clubs such as Run Club, Spanish Club, Garden Club, Mindful Mornings, etc.
  • Working with the Town of Cary and other agencies to improve pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure around the school
  • Providing amazing staff appreciation events and helping to fund classroom setups and school supply purchases

These are just some of the ways members have been able to volunteer their time and expertise over the years. We would love for you to join us!

Join the PTA online through our MemberHub store. You can also join and pay by cash or check (check preferred) by returning your completed paper copy of the Northwoods PTA Membership Form.

We have so many plans for special events, activities, and clubs and we need YOUR time and talent to make them happen.

The PTA at Northwoods is one of the best ways parents and extended families can get involved in our school. PTA activities are paid for through our ever growing fundraising efforts, and we’d like to invite you to participate!
