Hispanic population has increased by 71%, our Asian population has increased by 49%, and those identifying themselves as Multi-Racial have increased by 41%.

National PTA's mission is "To make every child's potential a reality by
engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children". We cannot accomplish our mission if we are not reaching EVERY family!
