WHAT IS THE ROSA PARKS PTA?

PTA

Welcome to Rosa Parks! The Rosa Parks Parent Teacher Association (PTA) works closely with the principal, teachers, and staff to make our school community a warm, fun, and welcoming hub of learning. The PTA is a volunteer nonprofit organization supporting the three programs (STEAM, JBBP, and Special Education) at Rosa Parks Elementary School.
