What Does It Mean to Become a PTA "Member"?
As each new school year begins, the PTA asks all of the families to please join the PTA. Taking a few minutes to join the PTA simply means that you would like show your support for the schools and the PTA. All that is required to join is a membership fee of $10 per year (per family) and to complete the Membership Form. That's it!
There are no requirements for volunteering time or attending meetings (although we encourage you to do so, if you can!). So, please join our PTA, and thank you for helping us support our children and these wonderful schools!
Before you can volunteer in any Carroll County Public School, you must first attend annual training.  You must complete training at least seven (7) school days before you wish to volunteer. And remember, you MUST RENEW your volunteer eligibility by attending training every school year.
This year’s training will be held on Back to School Nights and before all general PTA meeting through January 2013. Note that you can attend volunteer training at ANY school in the county. Due to time and the specifics of the trainings, late participants may be asked to attend other training sessions, so please arrive on time.
