Join PTA

Our mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. We invite you to share in that goal for our school by joining the PTA today!


Why join the SPES PTA?

  • Get Connected. PTA provides opportunities to meet and network with other parents, teachers, and school administrators. There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your child’s school and community.
  • Speak Up. PTA can be a way for you to more effectively be the voice for change at your child’s school.
  • Give Back. By becoming part of PTA, you will be part of the solution, to help make positive changes in your child’s school and in the lives of many children.
  • Effectively Engage. Spend quality time with your children through PTA programs, events and resources. Not only will you show how much you care about them but will also demonstrate the importance you place on their education.


We are asking every mother, father, teacher, neighbor, grandparent, and community member to join the SPES PTA as we strive towards 100% membership. The membership fee is $5 per person ($10 for both parents). Of the $5 membership fee, $3.25 goes to local, state, and national dues; SPES keeps $1.75.

In addition to joining the PTA, please consider making a donation to our Stinger Fund. The PTA supports Short Pump Elementary School with both volunteer and financial assistance, and we couldn’t do it without the help of our generous school community. Show your support for the work that the PTA does every day at SPES by becoming a PTA member AND making a Stinger Fund donation today!
