Ways to Support McKinley

We Invite YOU to Join the PTA Today!!

The McKinley PTA community welcomes and encourages leadership, volunteerism and membership from ALL of our families.   PTA is for EVERYONE involved in our school including Parents, Caregivers, Grandparents, Teachers, Staff and the broader community. There are many reasons to join!

Membership is on a sliding scale starting at $10 per person.  No one will be turned away due to a lack of funds! You may sign up one family member or student for $10 or add a membership for each family member for an additional $10 per person or you may have your membership sponsored for free.  We are an inclusive community and value participation from all families.
