National PTA School of Excellence

National PTA School of Excellence 2021-2023

We did it again!  We are so honored that Ardenwood Elementary PTA was named a National PTA School of Excellence for the second year in a row!

This year 242 PTAs and schools from across the country was awarded 2021-2023 School of Excellence for forming strong partnerships that are enriching the educational experience and overall well-being for all students.

National PTA’s School of Excellence program is a year-long commitment to improving family-school partnerships. Throughout the year, PTAs and schools collect feedback from their school communities to create and implement plans of action to make a difference for every child. Through the School of Excellence program, PTAs and families become key partners in decision-making and school improvement efforts. The program opens the lines of communication and critical thinking within school communities to make data-driven decisions that yield positive, long-term results.

Last year, Ardenwood PTA was one of 351 PTAs and schools named 2020-2022 National PTA School of Excellence based on our goal to address COVID 19 reliefs for our students by addressing their social-emotional well-being that year through community engagement events, and virtual events, partnering with local businesses to maximize student experiences.  Check out the announcement letter made by Mr. Wasser & Ellen Tillman of last year's achievement.

We are so proud of our Ardenwood community and everyone’s hard work and efforts to earn us this incredible distinction these last two years.  Thank you for your continued dedication to our school and community!
