Our PTA

Short Pump Elementary School PTA is a non-profit, volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers and community members.  Our PTA’s focus is to enhance the social, cultural, artistic and educational experience for all children at Short Pump Elementary school.

The purposes of the Virginia PTA, the National PTA and the Short Pump Elementary School PTA are promoted through an educational program directed toward parents, teachers, and the general public and are developed through conferences, committees, projects and programs.

We hope that each and every parent with children at Short Pump Elementary School with join the PTA.  Each child benefits from the programs and services of the PTA.  It is through your memberships, volunteer hours, and overall participation in your student’s education that we achieve success together.
