Van Buren Elementary PTA Mission Statement
We, the Van Buren Elementary PTA, are a community of concerned and involved parents, educators, and community members aiming to help make our school a positive learning environment for our children by providing our fellow parents and teachers opportunities to connect, advocate for our students, and support our educators. We all work as partners in our children’s educational experience. Our goal is to help provide for our children, specifically students attending Van Buren Elementary School. When possible and applicable, we will help provide for the needs of Van Buren educators, such needs enhancing and bettering the safety, education, and welfare of our students. Our goal is to increase parental and community involvement and support for Van Buren Elementary, thereby promoting school pride and a sense of belongingness to the Van Buren family. We can help achieve this goal by providing opportunities and forums to volunteer, participate, connect with, and contribute, e.g., programs and events, family nights, outreach, in-classroom help, fundraisers, supply donations, field trips, other activities, etc. As the Van Buren Elementary PTA’s goals are program-driven, we will strive to accomplish the goals set forth and raise monies required to achieve these goals. To achieve our program and fundraising goals, we will strive to rely upon and appreciate the continued support, contribution, participation, and involvement of our parents, teachers, and community members.
