As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child and the best tools to help children be safe, healthy, and successful in school and life. Everyone who joins PTA becomes a member at both the state and national levels.

At the local level, Puffer-Hefty PTA is a group of parents and staff who work together to enhance the school experience for the students of Henry Puffer by fundraising and planning a wide variety of programs and events.  None of these activities would be possible without the efforts of our volunteers and the generous support of parents like you.

Why you should consider joining:

1. To help and encourage your child!
Research has shown the most important indication on how well a child will do in school is the level of parental involvement in the child's education. This does not mean that you have to perpetually volunteer for PTA programs (although that certainly would be nice) or be at school all day. Just being a member of Puffer-Hefty PTA offers support for the organization.
2. To help all children!
The primary mission of the PTA is to advocate for ALL children. Why is this important? We, as a society, need to understand that all children are our future. We need to make sure that all children will become contributors to our society.

3. It's Fun!

While you may work hard at times, PTA volunteers have fun doing their jobs. With so many different opportunities, there is something for everyone. It can range from volunteering at Puffer Fest, Book Fair or Game Night to helping with a room party or simply cutting out Box Tops and Campbell's Soup Labels. You'll meet other great parents, share tips, and develop leadership skills.
Help us make a difference for each child at Henry Puffer by joining the Puffer-Hefty PTA today as a member and/or a volunteer.
