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.

2013-2014 PTA Goals


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.

Union SchoolsIn order to accomplish these goals, it requires the teamwork of parents, teachers and administrators within the school system.
The Union PTA comprises a PTA Council and PTA chapters at each school site, including a PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) at Union High School at the Union Alternative School.
The PTA Council oversees district wide programs that benefit all of the students through several programs including Klothes Kloset, Catch the Dream, Meet the Masters, Reflections and Kids on the Block. The representatives from each site help ensure these programs are a success.


At the end of each school year, the PTA presidents write a communique, sharing the achievements each chapter has had.

Featured Programs

Klothes Kloset is a Union PTA program designed to benefit Union students in need of school clothes. Union High School houses the Klothes Kloset, where shopping nights are conducted once every other month. Union provides a school bus so that clothes can be taken to the school sites during the school day to meet the needs of those students who are unable to attend a shopping night. Each of the schools assists in donating clothes and helping to run the shopping nights and the traveling bus.

Union SchoolsCatch the Dream is a PTA Council-sponsored recognition program to honor outstanding staff members. Students at each school nominate staff members who have gone above and beyond their normal duties to be entered into a monthly drawing. The winners at each site are in turn entered into a monthly district drawing to be recognized by the entire district.

Kids on the Block  a program that is coordinated with Union’s drama departments, counselors, and Drug-Free Youth to raise awareness about illegal drugs and alcohol. The program involves D-FY youth visiting schools and performing puppet plays with appropriate messages at different functions and schools.  Students volunteer for the skits.
