Washington State PTA eSurvey 2020!

Member voice matters — please take a few minutes and complete our Lawton Elementary PTA e-survey. There’s a wide range of advocacy issues and we need your voice to help our PTA delegates vote on the Top 5 issues that are most important to us. The survey also includes other proposed positions that delegates will vote on to develop the WSPTA platform. The issues all support the health, education, and welfare of children and youth but the proposed platform covers a wide spectrum of advocacy positions and legislative policies from increasing access to mental health to preventing gun violence and suicide to closing the digital divide. There are also eight resolutions with topics ranging from access to recess and unstructured play to improving outcomes in special education to dismantling institutional and systemic racism. Plus one new principle against racism, discrimination, and oppression. Take the e-survey and let us know what’s important to you.

There’s also a WSPTA Voters’ Guide to give you more information on all the issues as the survey just has the titles. Take a few moments to review that information as you take the e-survey.

Your replies will help guide our PTA’s delegates when they vote at the upcoming WSPTA Legislative Assembly in late October where the new 2020-2021 Platform will be set.  The e-survey closes on October 9.

Without members, there wouldn’t be a Lawton PTA. Without a Lawton PTA, there wouldn’t be:

The Lawton PTA provides enriching educational opportunities and improves the well-being of our students and school community. Many of the experiences and support that our children enjoy are funded directly by the PTA budget. We are run by volunteers and mobilize countless volunteer opportunities at Lawton throughout the year.

When you join the Lawton PTA each year, you become part of the largest child-advocacy association in the state, and you show your support for all that the Lawton PTA does collectively to help our children, families, and school. PTA membership funds support PTA activities at the National, State, and City levels, with the remaining portion of funds covering the cost of trainings, insurance, banking, and general administration expenses here at Lawton.

Joining the PTA supports all of these PTA activities, strengthens parent and teacher involvement at Lawton, and allows you to vote on important issues to decide how you want PTA funds allocated to support Lawton Elementary programs and resources.

PTA members can also benefit from discounts from a variety of participating businesses, including Great Wolf Lodge, and offers on leadership training, subscriptions and more.Join us!
