Join the Peacemakers PTA!

Maplewood’s Peacemakers PTA is a membership organization, meaning we need community members to sign up for annual memberships to retain our good standing as a tax-exempt entity. We’d love to have you join us with an annual membership at! Annual Memberships are $6.50 per person and anyone (parent, student, grandparent, guardian, neighbors!) can be a member.

Membership scholarships are also available for families and students — email for more information.

What does the Maplewood Parent Teacher Association do?

Maplewood’s PTA Mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. We do this by supporting the students, families, and staff of Maplewood Elementary through academic enhancement initiatives, community building, increasing communication, and fundraising for the school.
