Who We Are

The Northwoods Parent Teacher Association (PTA) welcomes students, families, and friends to a new school year! We’re glad you’re here, and we hope you’ll be actively involved in our school.

Our official mission is to create the best possible school environment in which our children can learn and grow. We make this happen through:

  • Volunteers: We encourage all Northwoods families to volunteer. You are always needed and wanted at our school, whether in your child’s classroom or on one of our schoolwide committees. Please help! It’s good for your child, for ALL our children, and for you, too!
  • Resources: We raise money to provide tools and services that aren’t covered by the school budget, from technology (including new computers and SMART Boards) to classroom supplies to special enrichment activities. We also host events for students (such as cultural arts programs and our annual Science Fair) and events for families (for example, International Night and Spring Fling).
  • Support: We work together to help our children, our teachers and staff, and each other. We are a true community, and you are an important part of it. Please use us as a resource for any questions you may have . . . Northwoods is a wonderful, caring environment for families, too!
