A great way to get involved with your child's education is to join our PTA. The money raised by PTA is used to send children on field trips, purchase items for children to use at school, and provide activities for students and families of our community. The cost to join PTA is only five dollars per family. Meetings are held at Paxton on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. We hope to see you there.
The Platte City PTA warmly welcomes you, as your child is ready to begin his/her school career. Our PTA serves Rising Star, Siegrist, and Paxton Elementary Schools. The PTA is made up of parents, teachers, school administration, and community members. Our work helps facilitate the educational process by supporting our educators and involving parents in their child's educational experience. The PTA encourages all parents to join our PTA. Your involvement contributes to the positive experience children have attending our elementary schools.
