Being a member allows you to stay caught up via email with everything that the PTSA has to offer. Just a few activities include Red Ribbon Week, Battle of the Bands, Reality Town, and even lunch time activities. Get involved in these activities by getting a chance to volunteer as the need arises, or simply just know the many activities that the PTSA puts on for your kids at PG Junior High.
