Markham Elementary PTA

Welcome to Edwin Markham Elementary School PTA!  The 2019-20 Markham PTA Board would like to personally invite you to join us as we work with our administration and teachers to create the best possible educational experience for our children.  We want you to be a part of it all.  

If you are new to Markham, or even if have been a part of our family for years, you may have questions about PTA, our mission and what we ask of our members. Here are some quick facts:

  • The Markham PTA is a diverse group of parents, caregivers and teachers who band together to support programs that enhance the school experience for all our students.
  • By joining the PTA, you help provide us with the financial support to make these projects possible. Your membership does not require any volunteer hours, but it does allow you the opportunity to sign-up for volunteer opportunities that fit your schedule.
     
  • The Markham PTA is a unit member of the Mt Lebanon Council PTA, the Pennsylvania PTA and the National PTA. 
     
  • Our PTA programs consist of educational, cultural, and social activities including Newcomer Night, Ice Cream Social, Welcome Back Picnic, AssembliesField DayHoliday FairOdyssey of the MindRead-A-ThonReflectionsScience Fair, International Night, Skating PartySpelling Bee, Markham's Got Talent, the Markham Memory Book, and More!

    These important student experiences are fully-funded and administered by the Markham PTA through the  generosity or our members and support of our parents through fundraising activities.
  • We also support our classroom teachers by fulfilling classroom wish lists, reimburse teacher purchases for classroom materials and provide educational materials for the Matt’s Makerspace at Markham Elementary
     
  • Being a PTA member also allows you to vote on important decisions about PTA endeavors and its future leadership, and suggest new ideas for PTA projects. Membership also gives you access to the PTA school directory, and delivers our PTA newsletter to your inbox every month.

We hope you will consider becoming a member today and support us in these endeavors.

We look forward to seeing you at our next school-wide event or our next PTA meeting!
