PTA Mission


What is the Swigert PTA?

A non-profit organization that expects to raise more than $230,000 this year, the Swigert PTA helps to fund programs and provide supplies that the school could not otherwise afford.

This money supports our IB program including paying for the IB coordinator and Spanish teacher’s salaries as well as IB training for teachers and our IB dues. We are also funding P.E., Art and Music teachers’ classroom budgets, para professional who keep our class sizes small and other school related efforts.

 

OUR MISSION

To  the support IB (International Baccalaureate)
program, high academic standards and a positive learning environment at our
school through educational and social programs, parent outreach, and community involvement.

    keeping student teacher ratios low

    through effective communication, planning, documentation, and training

    to adjust to outside factors

How Do I Get Involved?
