WHY SHOULD I JOIN THE TYEE MIDDLE SCHOOL PTSA?

When parents are involved with their child’s education, the child is more likely to succeed. Joining the PTSA demonstrates your support of the mission and goals of the PTSA and entitles you to “voice and vote”. Each year, we aspire to attain 100% membership which means we have an adult PTSA member for every Tyee Middle School student. 100% membership gives credence to our PTSA voice in advocating for our children with the Legislature and sends a message to Olympia that our school and district are made up of parents who are concerned and involved. Membership does not require you to volunteer - but we'd love it if you did!
