Who We Are

Our Mission
McDonald Elementary PTA is an inclusive organization of McDonald parents and teachers that supports McDonald International School through volunteering, community-building and fundraising. We believe that an active, involved and effective PTA makes a crucial contribution to our community and to the academic success of our children's school.

National PTA Mission
The overall purpose of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

PTAs serve as a forum where parents, teachers, administrators, and other concerned adults discuss ways to promote quality education, strive to expand the arts, encourage community involvement, and work for a healthy environment and safe neighborhoods.
