Call to Convention Misprint

Hello to all the Hard Working Kansas PTA members,


I am sorry to say that we had a mistake on the Hotel Information in the Call to Convention, It lists the room rate at $81.00 per night with breakfast included, this in incorrect.  The actual room rate at the Hilton Garden Inn is $97.00 per night and breakfast is not included. We do plan on having the Hospitality room open for those staying at the hotel so plan on stopping by.

The Hotel does have a restaurant in the lobby as well.

I do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused any of you. I am looking forward to seeing lots of new faces and some familiar ones in Kansas City in May!

Monica Crowe
2014 Convention Chair.

National PTA Reflections Program

National PTA Reflections is America’s oldest and largest arts education program of its kind. The program was developed in 1969 by Colorado’s PTA President Mary Lou Anderson to encourage students to explore their talents and express themselves. Since then, the Reflections Program has inspired millions of students to reflect on a specific theme and create original artwork.
Each year, students in Grades Pre-K through 12 are recognized for bringing the theme to life through film production, dance choreography, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts. The 2013-2014 Reflections program theme is “Believe, Dream, Inspire.”
All students must follow the general participation rules, as well as rules for each arts category listed above. For forms and guidelines click here.

We want to introduce a new Partnership, the Kansas State PTA/ItAllcounts program. The program is very unique and innovative! The ItAllCounts program is a NO COST program where the Parents and Supporters earn money for their personal account and at the same time the PTA/School earns money when Parents, Teachers and Supporters shop online. ItAllCounts will build a personal Landing page for each school/PTA at no cost.

Example of how the program works: If a Parent spends $100.00 at Kohl’s and they give a 5% Contribution/Rebate: $2.50 goes to the Parent Personal account and $2.50 goes to the School/PTA account. (The prices and coupons /discounts are same as you normally pay) They also give each PTA Member a $5.00 credit when their personal account reaches $10.00 in contributions/Rebates. ItAllCounts will Sponsor the State PTA with a 10% Bonus of all Monies raised after 12 months. This is a WIN for our families and Teachers and our PTA’s.

Kansas PTA Advocacy Brochure

 

 


As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, Parent Teacher Association (PTA) reminds our country of its obligations to children and provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child while providing the best tools for parents to help their children be successful students.
 

PTA was created to meet a profound challenge: to better the lives of children. And today, it continues to flourish because PTA has never lost sight of its goal: to change the lives of children across our great nation for the better.
 

PTA does not act alone. Working in cooperation with many national education, health, safety, and child advocacy groups and federal agencies, the national PTA organization collaborates on projects that benefit children and that bring valuable resources to its members.
 

Kansas PTA was founded in 1914 and has been working since that date for a quality education and the health, safety and well being of each and every child in Kansas. We encourage dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and community members to join us in our work for all children. Our current issues are to support the Common Core Standards Initiative, programs including - Million Hours of Power, Three for Me, MORE, Healthy Lifestyles, Family Engagement in Education and incorporating the PTA National Standards into Kansas education. We invite you to become a member of Kansas PTA and to become a part of our advocacy efforts for each and every child!
