The Union Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a volunteer child advocacy association, under the umbrella of the National PTA, which provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child providing the best tools for parents to help their children become successful students.
The purpose of the Union PTA is the same as that of all PTAs:
To support and speak on behalf of children and youth in the schools, in the community, and before governmental bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children;
To assist parents in developing the skills they need to raise and protect their children;
To encourage parent and public involvement in the public schools of this nation.
At the end of each school year, the PTA presidents write a communique, sharing the achievements each chapter has had.
The purpose of the Union PTA Scholarship is to encourage students to continue their education, whether at a college or a vocational setting. We strongly encourage all seniors to apply. The application is to be completed by Friday, March 13, 2015. To be eligible the senior must have attended UHS for the last three consecutive semesters and be a member of the Unions High School PTSA by January 31, 2015. Details of completion requirements are on the application. Questions can be addressed to Betsy Francis, Union PTA Council Scholarship Committee, email@example.com.

Catch the Dream is a PTA Council-sponsored recognition program to honor outstanding staff members.

The winners at each site are in turn entered into a monthly district drawing to be recognized by the entire district.
