The Southwood School PTA is an integral part of your child’s school experience. Through the PTA, we invite parents and teachers to unite in an atmosphere of communication and awareness, so we may together support the highest standard of education for our children. We encourage your involvement in this partnership to facilitate a successful and positive learning environment for our students.

Here at Southwood School, we have an active and vibrant PTA. Our PTA is successful because of the dedication, hard work, and participation of our many parent volunteers. We invite all parents to participate in this year’s many events, activities, and monthly PTA meetings. The more we work together, the more our children benefit.

We hold a variety of fundraisers during the school year. The profits from these fundraising efforts allow our PTA to sponsor many programs, support field trips, fund many of our PTA activities, purchase folders and agendas for each child.

Throughout the year we will be collecting Box Tops for Education which can be found on a variety of products at the grocery store. Please send them in an envelope marked with your child's name and teacher. The class who collects the most box tops at the end of each marking period will receive a prize.

Southwood School is also participating in the Stop & Shop A+ Rewards Program. Please visit www.stopandshop.com/aplus and select register your card, which is located in the red box on the right for customers. Follow the prompts to complete your registration. You will need your 13-digit Stop & Shop Card number in order to complete the registration.

The fee to join the PTA is $7.00 per person. You may sign-up online at www.pt-avenue.com/join or you can complete the form found in the backpack on the school's website and send it into school with your child. By joining the Southwood School PTA and participating in our fundraisers, you help ensure the success of the events we plan and the activities we fund, which benefit all students at Southwood School. We also welcome your participation in our many volunteering opportunities.

We invite you to attend our monthly PTA meetings, usually held on the first Monday of each month. PTA meetings provide a wonderful opportunity to learn what’s happening at Southwood, voice your opinions on key PTA decisions, meet other parents, and ask questions about issues that concern you.

Thank you and we are looking forward to a wonderful school year together!!!
