PTA Great Idea Bank: A Social Network and Idea-Sharing Resource

Welcome to the PTA Great Idea Bank

This social network will enable parents to interact and learn from each other how to overcome the challenges of parenting today. The best advice comes from peers, so use the discussion forum to share money-saving tips, ideas on how to be a more involved parent, fun activities to share with your kids, ways to communicate with your child's school and more. The advice and discussion on these pages is directed by users. If you are also a PTA leader or active in your local unit, this idea bank is filled with ways to run PTAs more effectively.
