The number-one reason to join Grand Ridge Elementary’s Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is to benefit your child through your interest and involvement in their school. In doing so, you also have a major impact on the school! Join now through this link.

Here are just a few advantages of PTSA membership:

  • You’ll be part of the EXTRAORDINARY team that supports every child at Grand Ridge.
  • It is a one-time commitment, you are not obligated to do anything for the entire school year! (But we'd love to see you at one or more of our four school year meetings/socials.)
  • Member benefits. PTSA members can save more money through WA state and National PTA member benefits than they have to spend for their membership fee.  You will also receive a discounted rate for your yearbook purchase this year.
  • Parent involvement in their child’s education is the #1 influencer for them doing better in school.
  • Be a role model. By becoming a PTSA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
  • Get connected. There is no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
  • Speak up. Because the PTSA is a forum for exchanging ideas, you are encouraged to make suggestions that can create change at your child’s school.
  • Discover great resources. The PTSA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
  • Tap into a network. PTSA functions provide opportunities to meet other parents, teachers, our principal, build rapport, and discuss parenting issues that are on your mind.

Our PTSA plays an important role in fundraising - something the school itself is not allowed to do.  The funds raised through Orange Ruler and through an auction every other year provide curriculum-based programs, social events, technology, field trips and before and after school programs – all vital to our Grand Ridge community!

It only costs about 6 cents a day - $25/year - to become a PTSA member (two adults per household). And you’ll join the nearly 500 million other people nationwide who share your interest in issues affecting children. Everyone – parents, educators, students and other community members active in the school and community – is invited to join our not-for-profit organization!
