Colorado PTA Membership Challenge

Every child needs a champion! That’s why the Colorado PTA Board of Directors is challenging you to recruit a member for every student in your school. A lofty goal…yes, however, why not work hard to build and strengthen our voices to advocate for our children’s education, health, welfare, and safety? This is what makes our association different.
