Wells PTA is a member of the Plano ISD Council of PTAs, Texas PTA and National PTA. As members of these organizations, we are part of the oldest and largest volunteer child advocacy group in the United States. For over 100 years PTA has been working to identify problems affecting children and devising strategies to resolve them. Many important advances such as child labor laws, a public health service, hot lunch programs, a juvenile justice system, mandatory childhood immunizations, and automobile safety belt programs can be attributed to the unrelenting efforts of PTA volunteers.
As a PTA we have available to us the huge resources of the state and national organizations as well. This includes the training of our officers and chairs, state and national conventions, and many award opportunities. Most importantly, as a member unit of the PTA we have a voice. When PTAs join together as one voice, we can make a real difference for our children and for children throughout the United States.
