What is the difference between PTA and PTSA?
At secondary schools (junior highs and high schools) there is an option for student memberships. This gives students a voice in what the PTSA board does--with the inclusion of a Student Representative from our Student Council Cabinet. Student members have the same benefits nationally (see sidebar) as their adult counterparts. Locally, our Council PTA (all the schools in Lindon and PG that feed the High School) donate monies to fund 3 scholarships each year for PGHS seniors continuing on in ANY sort of higher education--trade school or university.
To Join PTSA at PGHS
To join PGHS PTSA you can sign up--both yourself AND your student-- and pay during school registration or you can click on the bottom below and it will take you to the school fees page. You can write a check and drop it off at the school office. Make checks payable to "PGHS PTSA". Please state if it is a student or parent membership in the memo line.
Cost is $ 8.00 per person per year.
What are the benefits?
National Benefits of PTA Membership
Because of the size of our organization, PTA is able to partner with businesses and negotiate special discounts, fundraising opportunities, and other valuable benefits exclusively for PTA members. When you make purchases from these companies, not only will you receive a discount, but National PTA will also receive a percentage of royalties from the sale.
PTA is working diligently to establish relationships with additional Member Benefits Providers to provide you with even more exclusive benefits in other categories. When you see a Proud Members Benefits logo, you’ll know the company has established a relationship with National PTA to provide special services or discounts exclusively for PTA members.
To ensure that benefits are provided only to PTA members, access to the list of providers and their offers is password protected.
