Dear PTA members, District 153 families, teachers, administrators, and community members,
The Homewood PTA turns 105 this year, and throughout our history we’ve had the great pleasure of helping supply our schools with materials, funds, volunteers, educational programs, and whatever else they may need. While we prefer to keep our focus on the children and schools, money must also play a part in our organization. Due to the growing costs of school programs and materials, as well as the rising dues at both state and national PTA, the price of membership will be going up for the first time in more than 10 years to $15 for the 2018-2019 school year.
This is not a decision we make lightly, but one we found necessary for the health of our organization. As always, every dollar that the PTA takes in goes toward the schools and toward furthering our mission. All members of our executive and general board are volunteers.
As always, we appreciate all of the support and participation that we receive from our families, teachers, administrators and community members. Thank you.
