Your 2016-17 Terra Centre PTA

Why Join our Terra Centre Parent Teachers Association (TCPTA)?
The number one reason to join the Terra Centre PTA (TCPTA) is to benefit your child.  We are a partnership of parents and educators striving to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of our students. The PTA provides a forum for parents to obtain knowledge and voice their opinions about what is happening in their school. Research studies show that when parents get involved, children do better in school.  Click here for 10 more reasons to join.

What does the TCPTA do? 
We help shape the community environment within our school through events and programs that bring us together and help our students be their very best.  Did you know that without the PTA there would be no afterschool enrichment or fitness programs?  The funds we raise, through the support of our families, go directly to support in-school and after-school programs and resources that would otherwise not be available to our students.  By being a member of and attending PTA meetings you provide a voice as to how these funds are spent within our school.  Below is a short list of what our TCPTA does.

  • Sponsors all afterschool programs
  • Sponsors in-school programs
  • Hosts and organizes family fun events
  • Provides the AtoZ electronic student directory
  • Provides a Website, Weekly Newsletter, and Facebook Page, to keep you up-to-date on school programs and events, community events, and information pertaining to FCPS schools
  • Supports parents and teachers by providing our students extended resources
  • Raises funds to make this all possible

Where do the funds go?
Last year we provided $30,000 in Student Resources and Programs
Here are just a few of those items:

  • Dream Box Math Program
  • 6 New iPads with Cases and a Portable Charging Box
  • Discovery Garden:  Wash Table, Critter House, Soil, Fertilizer, Seeds, Plants, Tools, and more…
  • Brain Pops
  • A Tinker Wall in STEAM lab
  • Ozo Bots, Maker Bots, Cublets, Marble Mazes
  • Art Display Frames (and the cool new iPads for stop animation projects)
  • Music: 4 new xylophones, Turbano Drum Set, Boomwhackers, Sleighbells, Mallets, and more… 
  • Field Trip Buses
  • Reading AtoZ
  • Assemblies

100% Tax Deductible Donation Drive

        Back By Popular Demand

This donation directly supports the many academic, social, and cultural programs at Terra Centre.  The PTA pledges that if we reach our goal of $20,000 by November 30, 2016, this will be the only major fundraiser of the year. Otherwise, programs the PTA supports will be cut – such as field trip buses - or the costs will simply be passed onto the families.   

A recommended amount of $50 per child 
(only $5 per month)
