    Membership Information

    PTA Membership flyer

    It’s time to join/renew your Watervliet PTA Membership for the 2023-2024 school year!

    Wait. I thought I was already a member? Memberships are valid from July 1-June 30 and must be renewed each year.  This means unless you joined/renewed in the last few weeks, your membership has lapsed.

    Who can join the Watervliet PTA? Parents, grandparents, families, teachers, staff, friends and students. You do NOT need to have a student in the schools to join PTA.

    Joining the PTA is NOT the same as signing up to be a volunteer. Just becoming a member supports our schools. How involved you are beyond that is entirely up to you.

    What are the benefits of Watervliet PTA membership? Membership allows your voice to be heard in the planning process AND gives you access to insider information weeks or months before it’s sent home in backpacks.

    Need other reasons? The PTA sponsors many family-friendly events throughout the year that you can help support including:

    • Halloween Dance
    • Field Trips
    • Bingo for Books
    • Free Books
    • Breakfast with Santa
    • Scholastic Book Fairs
    • Student Recognition
    • Field Day
    • STEAM Night
    • Teacher/ Staff Appreciation and so much morel

    Join TODAY!

    There are two ways to join PTA.

    1. Register online at https://watervlietelementary.memberhub.store/store
      Please note that online registration is subject to a transaction fee of $0.86
    2. Complete the membership form sent home with students and return that and cash or check to school!

    The Watervliet PTA welcomes you to a new school year and thanks you for your support!

    PTA Loves Volunteers!

    Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Watervliet PTA! Our supportive and active community makes a huge impact on our students. We appreciate you taking time to make a difference.

    If you are interested in helping with any of our planned events during the year, please complete the online volunteer interest form. This is the most efficient way for us to gather your information.

    Volunteering is a fun way to make new friends, learn more about the school, and invest in your child’s future. Everyone in the community has something to offer and we welcome any contribution of time or resources you can offer.

    If you have any questions, please email us at vlietpta@gmail.com or message us on Facebook. Thank you for your support!
