Welcome to the Baker Elementary PTA! 
 
Did you know that lack of parental involvement is the biggest problem public schools are facing!

86% of the general public believes that support from parents is the most important way to improve the schools

Decades of research show that when parents are involved students have:
-Higher grades, test scores, and graduation rates
-Better school attendance
-Increased motivation, better self-esteem
-Lower rates of suspension
-Decreased use of drugs and alcohol
-Fewer instances of violent behavior

Family participation in education was twice as predictive of students' academic success as family socioeconomic status. Some of the more intensive programs had effects that were 10 times greater than other factors
The more intensely parents are involved, the more beneficial the achievement effects
The more parents participate in schooling, in a sustained way, at every level -- in advocacy, decision-making and oversight roles, as fund-raisers and boosters, as volunteers and para-professionals, and as home teachers -- the better for student achievement!

The PTA Board still has plenty of open positions. If you are interested in making a difference at your child's school, please do not hesitate to contact us! We would love to have you!
