The Freedom PTA


    Welcome to the Freedom Elementary School PTA! Here you will learn about all of the wonderful things parents and teachers do to enrich the educational experiences of the children at Freedom Elementary school.

    What is the PTA?
    We are a local Parent Teacher Association that is organized by interested parents and teachers. It is a PTA organized under the authority of North Dakota Congress of Parents and Teachers (NDPTA), a branch of National Congress of Parents and Teachers (National PTA).  The Freedom Elementary School PTA has bylaws that govern the operation and five officers that ensure things run smoothly.

    Committee Types and Descriptions


    Membership Chair: Organizes fall and winter membership drives. Coordinates incentives for winning classrooms, etc. Purchases and distributes incentives within budget. Recruits new members year round and helps provide education to Freedom families and staff on why membership is important.

    Community Outreach Chair: Works with companies and individuals in our community to support the students and staff at our school. Whether it's reaching out to food trucks to vend at our back to school night, requesting donations from local businesses for Teacher Appreciation week or the Fun Run fundraiser, working with places in our community to have Freedom Nights (i.e. Skate City, Ninja Gym, Mathnasium), and collecting resources to benefit the teachers and students in our Freedom community.

    Event Chair: Plan activities, concessions, items for purchase, pricing, and advertising for events such as Back to School Night, Turkey Bingo, Winter Family Night, STEAM Night, the Sock Hop, and our End of the Year celebration. Note -- this committee can be broken down into individual events and can be worked through in pairs. All dates for these events have been set and each grade level will be assigned to an event for volunteers. Help supervise events and work with volunteer coordinator to make sure volunteer spots are filled.

    Volunteer Chair: Work with different board members and chairpersons to coordinate volunteer sign ups, recruitment and follow through for each event, including PTA meetings.
