Why PTA?

Why PTA?

The PTA supports and supplements the high-quality educational and community environment of Longview Farm Elementary. The PTA provides vital communication between parents, teachers and administrators. It leverages thousands of hours of volunteering and fundraising to support the teaching mission. From school-wide social events to Smart Boards in the classroom, Longview Farm would not be the same without the PTA.
