About the PTA

Through the PTA, parents get more involved in their campus and lend efforts to help support the Cluster. Parents and Cluster school staff partner to organize community-building and fundraising events to support the Cluster.

What the PTA Does

  • Provides communications tools to keep families connected to the Cluster (weekly email newsletter, website, and email listservs for discussions)
  • Holds monthly meetings to share current school initiatives and school system policy changes
  • Organizes large-scale fundraisers that raise significant money to support our school
  • Coordinates bus service between Watkins and Peabody
  • Organizes volunteer and community events (Walk-to-School Day, Beautification Day, and more)
  • Maintains the gardens at each campus

Working Groups at Each Campus

Through Working Groups, parents have more direct decision-making at each campus by:

  • Offering grants that allocate a significant amount of PTA funds at the campus
  • Helping with campus projects to enrich and improve learning and school culture

To join your working group, simply join the PTA and attend a working group meeting.
