Ardenwood Overview

Becoming involved in your school is a great way to get to know your neighbors, it's a lot of fun, and it helps out our kids tremendously. Parent involvement can play a critical role in a child's academic and social development. At the same time, involved parents help build a sense of a community at a school and help the school offer services that it otherwise could not. Parents make the difference.

The Ardenwood Elementary Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a non-profit, all-volunteer association established to benefit all students at Ardenwood Elementary School. We promote involvement and inclusiveness for all families, close working relationships with teachers and staff to offer our students quality education in a nurturing environment. It is primarily run by parents just like you - who have busy lives but want the best for their kids!

If you are not a member, please consider joining today and help us reach our goal of 75% family participation in the PTA at Ardenwood!

President’s Message:

My goal as President is to have open and frequent communication with all of you so that you know what the PTA does, what's going on at and between meetings and experience the value of being an active participant in the PTA. Please email me or any of the other board members if you have any questions.
