What is PTA?


PTA is an acronym for the Parent Teacher Association. The A.L. Lotts Elementary PTA is a branch of the Tennessee PTA, which is, in turn, a branch of the National Congress of Parents and Teachers (National PTA). The PTA is a non-profit organization which seeks to unite the forces of home, school, and community on behalf of children and youth. Activities vary between chapters, but local PTAs often help schools purchase needed supplies, find classroom and school volunteers, keep school grounds clean, provide seminars or programs for parents and children on practical or interesting subjects, and hold teacher appreciation events.
