Humble ISD Council of PTAs Adopts District Title I Schools
The “Adopt a School” initiative launched in 2004 when Woodland Hills Elementary PTA decided to adopt, Title I school, Lakeland Elementary. With the help of PTA parents from all grade levels Lakeland was able to receive extra PTA support for their campus. Not only did the Woodland Hills PTA board and members provide food and supplies for all of the parties at Lakeland but they also provided two volunteers each week for two hours to help with copying, laminating, filing and even tutoring.
Humble ISD PTA Council members have proved that no job is too big or small and they understand the importance of volunteerism. This past year the PTA Council has helped put on 19 different community events and half of them were for Title I schools.
Over the past two years Kingwood Park PTSA has also dedicated their time to help assist Ross Sterling Middle School with multiple teacher appreciation events, school supply drives and other volunteer assistance. This dedicated group of volunteers has also assisted with North Belt Elementary, Lakeland Elementary, Ridge Creek Elementary and Summer Creek High School. Kingwood Park High School and Bear Branch Elementary PTAs both have budgets designated to assist the Title I schools of their choice.
The Humble ISD Council of PTAs has organized a variety of events, programs and school drives over the past 10 years to help Title I campuses increase PTA membership, support teachers and students.
Humble ISD’s Council of PTAs has recently recruited several student service groups to help assist with the Title I schools in the area. Humble High School’s Presidential Ambassadors, Kingwood Park’s National Honor Society and Kingwood Park’s Key Club have decided to make a difference in their community by volunteering with the district Title I campuses.
Marilyn Mann, PTA Council Student Services Coordinator explains, “The Humble ISD Council of PTAs are an extra set of hands for the parents, teachers, and staff at the Title I schools and other schools, who need additional assistance. We fill in the gaps."
