Advocacy News

Calling all First District PTAs – start your Founders’ Day celebration now by becoming more informed advocates for your children and schools by participating in the First District PTA Ed100 20 X 20 Founders’ Day Challenge!

  • All PTA units who have at least FOUR (4) new people sign up for Ed100 in 2020 AND who each complete at least FIVE (5) lessons will be eligible to win one of twenty $20 Smart & Final or Office Depot gift cards. That’s 20 total lessons completed for a chance at a $20 gift card in 2020!
  • All new sign ups who complete lessons from January 1, 2020 through February 20, 2020 will be counted toward required criteria. If more than 20 units qualify, there will be a drawing among eligible units.
  • Councils – help us get the word out to the units about this incentive! Every council that has at least one qualifying unit AND sends out at least TWO communications about the challenge will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card (Smart & Final or Office Depot). Please copy First District PTA on your communications (email, FB post, flyer) and submit copies to education@pta1.org no later than February 20th.

There will be lots of issues impacting our children and schools in 2020. To honor PTA’s founders and our mission – working to improve the lives of all children and families – let’s build our knowledge base and speak with authority.
