Mission Statement: The purpose of the Salem Elementary PTA is to create an environment that supports learning, diversity, community and family. Our goal is to provide the support needed to create a positive, well-rounded educational institution as well as a caring and loving environment for growth. The PTA is open to all families, teachers, administrators and support staff.

We Pledge to...

  • Support the teachers, staff and administration in every way, not just monetarily.

  • Be a place where parents can make sure their voices are heard by administrators and staff.

  • Raise money for short term and long term school needs.

  • Partner to create a long term, strategic plan for the school.

  • Create an environment where all parents are welcome to participate.

  • Reach out to the community and identify ways in which we can get them more involved in the school through donations, sponsorships, volunteering.

  • Create consistent and reliable communication between the PTA and its members
