PTA - Parent Teacher Association

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.
