Gooding PTA


Why Should I join?

  • The #1 reason to join the PTA is to benefit your child.  But there are many more PTA advantages
  • Be a Role Model.  By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on education.
  • Get Connected.  There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school.
  • Tap into a Network.  PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers building a rapport. You can share ideas and experiences.
  • Witness Improvement.  By getting involved you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes.  The PTA plays an important role in fundraising to provide important funds that go directly back to the school to benefit the children.
  • The Gooding PTA was established in 2008.  During the last 4 years we have raised $59,838.00, all of which has gone directly back to the school.
