The John R. Briggs PTA is a volunteer organization made up of parents and teachers who work co-operatively to enhance the quality and quantity of activities and resources available at the John R. Briggs School. Parents are encouraged to volunteer their time to help teachers in and out of the classroom with a special focus on the cooperative development of exciting educational events for the children. PTA considers all parents and teachers to be "members" of the PTA and welcomes input from all. There is a yearly registration which is used to identify people who wish to be "active" members.
We work in partnership with a wide array of individuals and organizations to accomplish our agreed-upon goals.
We are dedicated to promoting children’s health, well-being, and educational success through strong parent, family, and community involvement.
We acknowledge our obligations. We deliver on our promises.
We value our colleagues and ourselves. We expect the same high quality of effort and thought from ourselves as we do from others.
We invite the stranger and welcome the newcomer. We value and seek input from as wide a spectrum of viewpoints and experiences as possible.
We act consistently with our beliefs. When we err, we acknowledge the mistake and seek to make amends.
