You can help to make your grandkid's school a better place no matter where you live. Are you interested in getting more involved?
Here are some ways that you can help:
Joining our PTA each school year is one great way to invest in your grandkid's well-being. PTA brings fun educational opportunities into Tarylor Elementary each year, and provides advocacy for kids on the local, state and national level. Kids don't have the same power adults have. Our goal is to grow the kind of community influence needed to support EVERY student in our sphere of care —and help them reach their potential.

You can also support your grandchild's fundraising efforts. Fundraising provides programs and supplies for students that are outside the scope of the school's budget. Giving benefits not only your grandchildren but other children, who do not have strong family support.
This is a kid-pleaser to be sure! Just check to see what time your student has lunch— and make sure the school isn't closed to visitors the day you plan to come. Certain tables are reserved in the cafeteria each day, for kids who have lunch dates.
Grandfathers—and other father figures — can attend school with their grandchildren one day each year. Your presence will delights kids, increase security and send a strong message that education is important to men.
Volunteering is a great way to support your grandkid's school in ways that suit your interests and abilities. And it sets a good example for them to follow as they grow. From book fair volunteers to baking for teachers or just doing odd jobs here and there, your investment means a lot— and is noticed by many little eyes!
If you have some extra time, care about kids, and work well with other adults, you could be a valuable PTA board member! This can be a great way to use your business skills, personal skills and passions to make our community a better place.
