The PTA was created to meet a profound challenge: to better the lives of children. It continues to flourish because PTA has never lost sight of the goal to change the lives of children across our nation for the better. As a PTA we have a responsibility to protect access to quality education for all children, to share accurate information with members and the school community, to know, help, and interact with teachers and administrators and to work the school in a constructive manner, maintaining respect for democratic procedures and a tolerance for the diversity of opinions. On a local level, we support Perry Creek Elementary with programs that enhance the students' education and support an environment in which they are able to thrive.
At Perry Creek Elementary, over 40% of students receive their meals for free or at a reduced price. Many families in our school struggle to provide the nutrition that they need to thrive especially over the weekends. As a result, children return to school on Monday too distracted by hunger to focus on their education. The Perry Creek Elementary PTA has established a Weekend Backpack food program to provide food to students who would otherwise not have adequate access to food during the weekend and school breaks. The Perry Creek Elementary backpack food program provides nonperishable food to the students in need to take home when school meals are not available. These bags are distributed at school to participating students by the Perry Creek Elementary administration. Our program goal is to provide 2 breakfast options, 2 lunch options, 2 snack options, and 2 milks and 1 juice.
