​​Banyan Elementary School PTA

What is the PTA?
The Banyan Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a volunteer group of parents, teachers, staff members, and friends who have the same mission: to partner together to support a thriving academic environment, provide enrichment programs and promote a strong community for all Banyan students.  

The PTA works to provide Banyan students with many programs that enrich their educational experience, including physical education, art, music and more. It serves four primary roles:

  • Volunteer coordination
  • Social/Community-building 
  • Fostering communication within the Banyan community
  • Fundraising (to support our mission and goals)

Our goals are to:

  • build a healthy and nurturing school community;
  • cultivate a collaborative environment through effective communication;
  • enhance academic and enrichment programs; and
  • support classrooms through room parents and volunteers.
