About the PTA
Strength in Numbers – Join the PTA!
Like any team, we are stronger if we all contribute and participate. Joining and donating to the Graham PTA is the most direct way you can help make Graham the remarkable place it is for your child! By joining and becoming involved, you become a part of a team, more connected to your child's school community.
Become a PTA member and you will be able to vote at general PTA meetings about which activities and programs we will bring to Graham. Joining the PTA does not require any additional volunteer time on your part.
These days, schools are asked to do more with less and our help is needed to fill those gaps. Your tax-deductible donations to our Graham Annual Fund and Graham Performing Arts (if applicable) will go toward a multitude of necessities that impact your child directly. Just a few examples that enrich your child's life at Graham include funding events like spirit week, social dances, performing arts shows, 8th grade graduation, spirit week, and many more school-wide activities, like last week’s amazing welcome week activities.
There are two easy ways to join and donate to the PTA today!
You can make your money go even further if your company matches charitable donations! Contact your HR department to see if they offer corporate matching.

Log your volunteering hours ONLINE
Please record all the hours you spend supporting PTA projects and activities on and off campus...in classrooms, after school clubs, events, meetings, on field trips, or paper/computer/phone/laundry work at home.
If you have already signed in your volunteer hours at a meeting or at the front office, no need to record those hours.
Please log your volunteering hours on Volunteer Hours Report Form
These volunteer hours help PTA's in advocating for All children at local, state and national level!!
