Being a PTSA member is different from participating in fundraising efforts at school. By becoming a PTSA member you ensure that we have the funds to run our organization, organize fundraising activities and, with that fundraising support, give much needed resources to our school and every student. 

Your membership dollars in numbers:

$ 5.75 per member to Washington State PTA

$ 2.25 per member to National PTA

$ 1.00 per member to Lake Washington Council PTSA

That means $6 from a single membership and $7 from a dual membership goes back to our general fund.


What's in it for you:


Did you know that in past years, the Alcott PTSA funded art lessons and organized volunteers to teach the art docent program?

We also fund the Nature Vision program that offers hands-on STEM experiences tailored specifically for every grade level.

And yes, we do pay for water for the portables.

There are so many more programs and services we support. Come to a Connection Meeting or contact us to find out more. 

As parents, we cannot directly impact the school's curriculum. Opportunities you have, is to vote in general and state elections and to become part of a group that has the power to lobby for special interest. As a non-citizen without voting rights, the latter might be the only way to express your interest and be heard. Our Alcott PTSA is part of a national movement, the National Parent Teacher Association (National PTA) that fights for parent's and student's interests, rights and values to be implemented and enforced in every school day and beyond. 



What do you remember most of your school time, friends, events, play dates? Having a support group through school, makes for lasting friendships, among students and parents. It also provides a resource for parents to navigate the school system, the local community and local culture. Being a diverse community as we are, this support is very important to many parents and students.
