MISSION AND GOALS

The Northrop Parent Teacher Association (PTA) believes when a parent is involved in their child's school, ALL children benefit. All parents and staff are encouraged to get involved in the PTA.

The PTA is dedicated to help build a strong school community and improve the quality of education at Northrop.  This is done through sponsoring social and cultural activities and by raising funds for school activities, classroom and media supplies, and recognition for our fabulous teachers and staff.

**ATTENTION: WE NEED YOU!

  • We will need new board members for the 2020-2021 through 2021-2022 school year (2-year term).  This is a great opportunity to be part of the Northrop community, engage in your child's education, and continue the strength of doing wonderful things for Northrop and the staff, especially during this unprecedented time.  For more information, please refer to the descriptions and current board members here.  Please reach out if you have any questions or would like to know more about any of the officer positions. Elections will be Sept 24, 2020.
  • In addition, we need someone to conduct a financial review. This is a requirement, under the MN PTA Universal Bylaws.  Are you interested or know someone who would love to help us? Perhaps a retired grandparent that was a CPA or accounting skills. Please contact us if interested.
